Default watercool advice [me-n00b]

i just quickly search some information and i understand mostly... but you know i cant know everything about watercool... and of course i dont have much experience...

first here is what i did read... i choose useful articles...

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/25...rcooling-guide
Water Cooling Parts Guide 2008 V1.2 - EXTREME Overclocking Forums
Water Cooling Guide for Beginners Overclockers Tech

D-Tek FuZion v2 CPU Block, work on an i7? - XtremeSystems Forums
Core i7 CPU Water Block Roundup
Skinnee Labs | Core i7 CPU Block Roundup #2 (old and latest one is at Skinnee Labs | EK Supreme HF )

now i realize... that my watercool setup that i bought (probably last year... cant remember) is not great as present... isnt it? i also bought 2 gpu blocks for gtx 260 too...

well the short long story; i want to set up the watercool for show off and learning at same time... but i dropped the idea for unknown reasons... sorry i dont remember... probably i dont care anymore or lazy...

so i accidentally saw the thread at buy and sell... that mm88 sells whole watercool setup which is pretty good deal... http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...-out-fast.html

so should i keep my watercool setup because it didnt make a big different... or should i get that watercool setup? do i need to buy more or replace the part to better one? any advices would be helpful...

thanks...

edit: about my opinion of mm88's w/c setup... supreme hf seems best cpu block in the marker... i am not sure about pump... probably fine... and i think i should get better radiator such as thermochill pa120.3.. well mc320 is good for value budget...


oh btw.. the not-ready-yet computer specification would be

hx1000
i7 950
ga x58a ud9
g.skill ripjaws 3x2gb 1600
vertex 2 60gb
seagate 7000.12 1tb

undecided about the case or make my own case... because of xl-atx format
