Im looking to water cool my current system. Im probably going to get one tripple and one double rad. I have a black and red build. Any tips and then im looking for something that is easy on my wallet.

Daz has some decent complete kits at relatively reasonable prices.

That said.... watercooling can be an expensive hobby, and it's not one where you'll ever get to a point where you don't have anywhere else to spend you money. :)

Koolance, ek for blocks. EK, alphacool for rads, primochill or whatever brand of arcylic tubing there is. Bitspower, ek, koolance, for fittings and/or res. Swiftech for pumps. And personal opinion i suggest mayhem pastel coolants, but that comes down to what you want.
