Default Need help in purchasing of Water cooling for 939 X2 4200

Hi all im gonna say it straight out im a noob when it comes to water cooling. I have read a lot of post i have read a lot of people say how great it is but i have also read issues of pump failures and blablabla. Basically my setup is like this


Amd X2 4200 running at 2.2ghz on 1.35v core
I have managed to get this up to 2.6ghz but the temps are just crazzy but being that it is summer the heat is ridiculous ma room gets way too hot. At the moment im using a Zalman 9700 to cool it down and its not really helping but i dont blame the Zalman.

anyways back to my setup

Amd X2 4200 939 @ 2.2ghz on 1.35v core
Thermaltake Matrix case
Ocz 600 watt Gamestream
Ocz 3200 Performance series 2 gb kit
Xfx 8800 Gt @ Gpu-700mhz Shader-1700mhz and Memory-1950 mhz
1 Seagate 320 7200.10
1 Seagate 500 7200.11
Asus A8n-sli deluxe motherboard

Hopefully i have not left anything out ill post up pics soon but i dont have the most perfect cable management so please do not laugh lol.

I want to know the best setup i can get but please do keep in mind i hope to get the Amd Quad core by the end of the year when they hopefully reach 3.0ghz so this setup must be able to handle the Phenom.

I want to be able to push the processor more if i can so it can last me a couple more months i dont wannt to be cuttin my box apart or anything major as this is ma first time.

So Please if someone can be so kind to teach this noob how to get a good water cooling setup that wont burst and blow the chip away ill love yea for life...

try searching the "vortex solution" on this forum. I find it works very well for a $185 and can be used on a quad. Otherwise add to it by getting a larger swiftech rad or a thermochill with a res- plus a better block

a little over kill for your cpu imho. just get a D-tek, Apogee or EK cpu block, Swifttech mcp655 or 355 pump and a thermo chill pa120.1 should work fine with some nice fans.

Would you mind making a thread about that, or link to it if you already have one, cause I'd like to know more about it...

heres the gear for the peer reviewed "Vortex solution" as suggested by Captn Vortex:
WTB: Decent Water Cooling System For My Q6600

This cpu loop is not hard to assemble or to modify-see threads for best fluid for watercooling among other things as the rad is outside the case and the pump is just stuck to the bottom of the case. Its also easy to remove the block and pull out the board if you need to. If you do take the plunge there will be lots of help here. Plus i would look through the worklogs of other watercoolers.
