NCIX has some good kits as well.. this swiftech is what i bought and has many good components. direct canada usually has a bit cheaper price.. just buy from them or price match at nxic..

H20-220
http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...cture=Swiftech

as well as their watercooling essential kits:
http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...nufacture=NCIX (not great but a good basic start)

http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...nufacture=NCIX (fairly decent)

also i have seen all 3 of these kits on sale in the sponsored deals..

Thanks for doing those links :)

And I'm doing some testing on that Magicool CPU block that's included in the basic NCIX kit...

It seems to perform about as well as an APOGEE vanilla, and a little bit better than a STORM on a Core 2 Duo....

I'm impressed for $35. Expect to see a review up soon :)

i'm a little hurt that i didn't see any links to ati coolers (i know were a small group) i would strongly recommend the DD TYEE if you can stomach the cost around 130-150 bucks. As for coolant don't forget water wetter that combined with some decent distilled of de-ionsed water is awesome. Finally my recommendation for clamps depends on the type of barb. For metal i would get some of those worm gear or jubilee type connectors for plastic or polypropelene barbs i would get the adjustable delrin clamps from DD.

The only experience I have water cooling is automotive ( cars I have worked on lol) is there any other kinds of pumps that are cheaper or better that people could use like fish pond pumps things like that?

I read some where (can't remember where ) that different (cpu and possibly gpu) blocks work better or worse with high volume/ lower volume pumps is this true? and if so which combination of lets say Intel cpu blocks works best with which pump. what I mean is the The MCP655™ pump is high pressure industrial pump, where as the Laing D5 12V Water Cooling Pump Is powerful enough to supply multiple cooling block solutions (CPU/GPU/Chipsets). does this really make a difference? only real thing I can see is the price
Also how does the V8 water block work http://www.stingerwaterblocks.mysite...hoto_page.html I read about it but I take it that you would have to Y connect it back into one line again?

Apollo, sir time for an update.. Masterkleer tubing at ncix is no longer carried. As far as that, only thing I would change is the gpu water block part, 8800 gtx is sort of old now..

Other than that, the guide still looks very strong and future proof.. Never notice your thread Apollo, probably one of the best suggestions I've seen so far..
