    I have been looking at the units on this site and really want to keep it under or at $200 bucks
    I would like a kit if possible but could use some real help putting together a liquid cooling setup for my CPU only and to keep it as cheap as possible and have it work better than the current offering I have now . It is good trust me ;) . Thank you all for your help in this . :respect:

    WOW that one looks sweet . How much of a performance gain should I expect over the current cooling I have ?

    I really don't know. I would say about what your idle is now maybe add 10c and that be your load temp?

    I am almost 100% sure that you will see lower load temps. if you can add alittle more money i would recommend adding another 120mm rad or a dual 120mm rad it would give you even better temps
    maybe this http://www.svc.com/dhwlp.html
    to go along with the kit

    Trust me, you don't get any better than that kit at that price. The Dtek block is awesome! I have it.

    in that case i have to agree with Paulieg. both of them are great but the one that Paulieg linked would give lower temps because of the dual rad and the water block i think is also alittle better

    Make sure you do your homework on installing and testing. Here is my project log from my first water cooling setup a couple of months ago.

    but also don't let people scare the shiz out of you like they did me. I had water cooling for a short time but i decided i would rather have the money and i had a friend that wanted some water cooling parts so i was being nice :laugh:

    leak testing is important. water and electronics don't play well together.
