H20-220 Compact is a great starting point. I would not suggest the others.

My System Specs

Take a look at my build log: http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...ercooling.html However it costs way more than any of those kits you listed due to me using some nice looking things like the reservior and pump top.

Cools my X3350 nicely (5C drop from a TRUE with push/pull P12s). The X3350 is the Xeon version of the Q9450.

With the H2O-220, I believe the fans are rather noisy so you might consider replacing them with Sycthe S-FLEX, Noctua P12 or Yate Loons. The only problem I have with that kit is that your stuck with the CPU block as the pump is integrated into it. If that pump ever dies, you'd loose both parts I'd think.

By parting it out you get a much more customizable setup, however you don't exactly get instructions on how to put it all together but it isn't that difficult if you've read enough forums. If you just want something quick and easy, stick to the Swiftech kits.

The only thing i could add when buying those kits Blogz is please add Swiftech Chrome barbs instead of the plastic barbs that comes with those kits. The kits are pretty decent.
