I've read most of the watercooling articles on the front page but they haven't cleared much up for me. I think i understand how they work, but most of the systems they describe how to make involve specific cases and leave out important stuff like where do you get the water block and how does it really attach to you cpu. Any help or links would be great, i really want to water cool my system, i've done the research but i'm still a bit shaky
Danger Den ( http://www.dangerden.com/ ) carries the best quality water blocks, I'm going to be buying one from them soon. If you go to their site, you can see the hold downs, there are two kinds. One clips onto the socket, it has a nylon screw that you tighten down onto the block. The other kind has 4 nylon bolts that go through the holes in an AMD mobo and go through either the block or an acrylic plate, you put nuts on the end and tighten.
Check out my article here http://www.overclockers.com/tips505/ it should answer a lot of your questions.

I'd pay a little more and get the DangerDen maze 2 block. My BECOOLING works fine but was not cleaned after soldering and one of the barbs was crooked showing a lack in quality control.
