Default Help Choosing WC parts for my Amd System

Hi all i have an Amd X2 4200 939 system ill post up pics in a few mins i just took some when i put ma new Zalman Vf-900 to cool down my 8800GT let me tell you its done miracles for my temperature.

Anyways being that its summer and i wanted to explore a new project WC was what i had in mind im an Amd fan boy but i know there will possibly be better chips coming out at the end of the year so im saving for my Quad-CORE then anyways so i want this setup to be able to handle the Quad-Core cpu as well so it would be awesome.

Budget - Go wild lol kiddin 200-300
Work- No customization or cutting as simple as possible
Performace- As good as possible to keep temps down
Sound- As low as possible
And if possibly something that would not heat up my room as my current setup really makes my room hot.



My Specs

Amd X2 4200 939 running at 2.2- Summer i have put it up to 2.63
Ocz 600watt Gamestream Powersupply
Xfx 8800GT with Zalman Vf-900 cooler
Amd A8n-sli Deluxe mobo
Ocz 2gb DDR Performance ram
2 Segate hardrives 1 7200.10 320gb and 1 7200.11 500gb
Thermaltake Matrix case- I bought it cause its the lightest case in the world literally!



So i hope i have covered everything ill post up pics in a few mins. Cheers i know about the Vortex solution and so far it seems the best fit for me but i have questions about tubing as i know there are tubes out there that have like spiral things on them so like the tube does not bend or something. And also about the liquid solutions to use i mean incase if i have a leak god forbid i dont want it frying my computer so any recommendations on that. And good quality fans for the setup that are quiet but effective Cheers.

Alrighty.... here we go: Vortex solution and some SmartCoils (not really needed, because the swiftech tubing is actually quite kink resistant...)

MCP655 Pump
Apogee GT CPU block
MCR220 RES rad. (dual 120mmfan support)
10ft of Swiftech 7/16" tubing
Swiftech Smart coils if you really need them
Distilled water+swiftec HydraX formula
RadBox (I suggest you mount the Rad external on your rear 120mm fan. Better temps, and leaves lots of room inside the case.)
1 pair of 1/2 barbs.

Let me make a screenshot of the order at Direct Canada for you.

Maybe use the standard MCP-655, since it comes with a speed adjustment option?

Oh I should note that you should have NO leaks, however if you do get a leak, chances are somehtings going to go. Some people get lucky, and nothing dies, but it's watercooling, we all take the risk.

Yes the model with speed adjustment is about $6 or $7 more. I use the one with no speed adjustment, and it is more than silent enough for me. I dont hear it at all actually.

The fans are VERY powerful. They are 38mm thick. Extremely silent, and TONS of power, perfect for watercooling radiators.
You would need to get fan grills. look up the nGear chrome grills. They are about $1 each
