Also, to the OP, why are you getting an LG drive? From what I've experienced, they aren't as good as others.
Just northbridge. Actually I got some GPU blocks but they didn't fit the 4870 x2(tried to use two single blocks). And my price included that too.

Basically the entire water cooling setup costed about 240 dollars(the pump was 90 those, so that was the most expensive thing).

Buying used can save you alot of dough, plus I got help from someone at xtremesystems.
