    Water cooling can be a lot of fun, but it also requires some thought and patience beyond what you need for a simple computer build. The benefits can be awesome if done right, but the consequences catastrophic if you are not careful. So, before you buy anything do a lot of research on installation more than components. After doing the research, you'll come to your own conclusion on whether you want a t-line or a res etc. Here is a list of the basics:

    Radiator (most important component)
    Pump
    CPU Block
    Fittings
    Tubing
    Fans
    Distilled water or coolant
    TIM (obviously)

    Here is a link to an old thread. There is some good info here, but it is a little outdated, since there are some better blocks and rads available now.
