    looks good man, should be plenty.

    ive cooled a 8800GTX + 3.6Ghz dual core in 1 loop with 1 x 120mm radiator and both were cooled better than their stock coolers by a good margin, so with a dual rad doing only cpu + nb should go well

    The H20-220 were meant for beginners. I highly suggest u do a custom one.

    Well I am a beginner in the water cooling out fits and I don't need all that confusion I just want a good setup that is going to be easy and fast and do the job .
    Will this do it ? I think it should I want some thing better than what I have 40c idle and 70c loaded . I sure hope that this will be enough to take the temps down .

    I had the 120 version of that setup for my first WC experience. I will tell you that the block/pump combo is loud, and it vibrates like crazy. It cools decent, but not nearly as well as my custom setup. I'd compare it to a better air cooler. To be honest, the custom "kits" from Petras and DD are just about as easy to set up as the swiftech kit.

    the kit you suggesteds from petra is good, but keep in mind that d4 pumps are damn loud. h20-220 is an excellent kit for the money, and you can do a simple upgrade when you want, adding a new cpu block and a pump top for the apogee drive (which basically is a mcp350, one of the quitest pumps around)

    as for the nb, why you wanna watercool it? it isnt really THAT hot. if it is, put a fan over it and you will be fine. if you wanna wc it anyhow, grab a swiftech or ek waterblock, great price/perf ratio. BTW since nb dont generate that much heat, it doesnt really need a killer waterblock, any choiche will be good, not varying too much from a block to another.

    Noise is not an issue for me at all . the NB gets to about 45c and I was just thinking with lower temps I could OC a little more .
    Thank you very much for your help .

    if noise isnt an issue, the kit from petra has very good performance, grab it! But, since noise isnt an issue, i bet that with a powerful fan over the nb you will solve the nb temp problem with much lower cost!

    that petra's kit is nice and very cost effective, you will be pleased with it's performance.

    for chipset block i'd suggest mcw-30 or DD mpc

    D4's are not loud if you mount them properly, i have two running in my case.

    both pump's have over 3yrs of use on them.

    Yeah noise is NOT an issue for me , My case is the CmStacker and well as it is now I have 7 fans blazing away in side it now it is loud and all but nothing that VOLUME doesn't take care of :laugh: . I have installed the ASUS fan on the NB chipset but it seems to be a bit hot to the touch so I think that getting a water block will cure that :) .
    Thanks again every one tomorrow I will order it all and see if I can get it in 2 days maybe not since xmas is coming up but maybe after I will get it .
    I can hardly wait to see the temps go down from 40c idle and 70c loaded to 20c and 40c ( I hope ) .

    make shure you get the quad insert and washer for that D-tek block so that you can maximize it's performance ;)

    Hey Intel, how much of a temp difference does that Quad insert make?
