I believe you can fit triple in drive cage area and still have 1 or 2 CD slots.

So, what should i do then?
If he throws some decent barbs in, lowers his price and/or adds fans (BTW if you check Direct Canada they should have two MCR320's that I returned two weeks ago at an open box price) and you trust the guy, go for it. You have to start somewhere. It's going to be a learning experience to say the least and you will probably have questions and need parts even after you think you have it all :) For example buying fans can be an experience on its own, I've got at least 12 extra fans laying around after building my latest rig :) I originally wanted what I consider to be the best (Gentle Typhoon 1850 rpm) couldn't find them anywhere so I tested a few different configurations. Then one day found a Canadian distributor that had some in stock
One of things you will have to do is spend a LOT of time reading reviews, builds, etc. on the various water cooling forums.

I'm oced at 4.2Mhz @ 1.38v, idle temp is 37c full load (running Prime95 or OCCT )temp is 67-70c. You will never see those high temps in every day use.

Get a res, what he said about the T-line is straight BS.
yea i prefer res to actually.. ok so what i should do are :

buy 1 rad, pump, gtz, tubes from him and reservoir, coolant from store?
is there anything to do to make it load under 60?

I'd also do as Daze suggests here. Besides you will need the extra cash for other parts :)

I would go with the swiftech micro-res. Best bang for the buck res and easy to bleed all the air out of your loop with.
