i would say Danger den is the best! you might need a bigger case if you want it to go inside your case but if not then it would be ok. a full tower or one that i found has been good is the Enlight 72.. somthing dont remember but it is a mid-size. the maze 2 waterblock is realy good and it has a built in hold down that goes through pre-made holes in the mobo

Check out some of the links and tips from the front page. There are plenty of product reviews and how-tos, and you'll get a pretty good idea of what to look for.

Danger Den makes the good stuff. Millisec is a quality retailer. I spent two months studying every hardware site I could find on water cooling before I decided to try it. And then some time in a physics book. I would recommend you do the same.

Yes you can probably save a few bucks, but it will take additional time to get all the parts. I personally got a system from Tom Leufkens (www.leufkenstechnologies.com). It cost me $125, which is about $30-40 more than if I had bought cheaper parts and individually, but this kit had been favorably reviewed, was a snap to set up, and it's all pretty good stuff, and as a first system it's good to know that everything is supposed to fit and work.

Despite Mr. Leufkens prominence in the overclocking community, my dealings with him have been less than satisfactory.
