I wonder if you guys can help answer a few watercooling questions i have. i probably won't be trying it til later this year, but i like to plan ahead.

I've seen the Koolance waterblocks, those seems like a good size/inlet/outlet positioning for dual slot1 boards (limited space between cpu slots, about 42mm).

Now, are there other blocks with similar inlet/outlet positions and mounting mechanism that outperforms the Koolance block?

Should i go for parallel or serial for the 2 cpus?

Also about how much gph would i need? will the maxi-jet 295gph be enough?

Radiators, what kind should i be looking into?

A slot processor doesn't use with the Koolance uses, it uses socket lugs, slot catridges use uses clips going through the four holes.

The pump is great, you should consider a heater core for a radiator.

Use the pumps in paralel because if you go in series you will have the hot water from one CPU going to cool the other CPU. You don't want that. Also, where can I get any good slot 1 waterblocks?
