Default $300 LCS

I was wondering if someone on here could put together(parts list) a water cooling system for my AMD phenom ll x4 955 processor

I'm a water cooling noob so preferably something fairly easy to setup and at a maximum price of $300
(preferably red colour, tubing or coolant; whats better?)

thanks for any help

Get the parts listed here, minus the additive, IMHO.

There are a couple of ways to do it without having to cut your case. You could buy This or remove your harddrive bays in front and attach it to the front

Yeah you would do this to mount it. Personally I'd rather have it out back, that way your video card is still getting fresh air.

Why not mount the radiator directly to the dual 120mm rear fans? I think there's enough space to do so...

I have not personally built a machine in the 1200, but there should be more than enough room for a bunch of different configs. Front, back, rear, maybe even top!
