    Whats up guys. Well I want to get into the watercooling, but I don't want to spend an arm and a leg for it. I have AMD Athlon 64 FX-55 Clawhammer which is currently @ 2.705Ghz. I want to get some more juice outta this baby and I know I can with a WC setup. However, when its comes to WC I am the ultimate noob and don't know what I need (pump, radiator ect.) or what brand is good. Just a basic WC setup for my processor (socket 939) would sufice. Any suggestions would be great!

    *All hardware is in sig....

    many people here would disagree with me and tell you to go custom, but in my opinion since u expressed ur self as a noob at w/c (dnt woz im the same) i would recomend you go with a full kit, if you search the forums i have made a thread about what waterkooling kit should i get, it might help you out, i have 939 by the way so whatever the guys have suggested me it will work on ur cpu


    here's ma thread, saves u searching

    Im really happy with my Asetek Xternal kit, it saved alot of hassle of installing rads and fans just had to tube it and put in the blocks.
    Can see pics in my sig

    I'm very happy with my H20 system, it is a full system, no botching at all! Keeps my cpu & gpu @ idle @ 30*c - @ full, full load cpu 47*c & gpu 40*c

    That's with only one rad with 120mm fan & 200ml external reservoir!

    Looks real nice to with u.v additive!

    ;)

    That's like £100, the exact same spec from XSPC would be £85 - £90, so I guess it's a good deal!

    The rad wants to be away from the internals, maybe mount it on the top of you case ;)

    P.S - Do you not get a gpu block w/ that system?

    NO, you can buy it seperately tho. Just comes with the CPU block. Hmmmm I just don't know where I would put the Rad on my case (Antec Nine Hundred)

    Link to case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811129021
