    I think the EK got nice NB/SB blocks

    also does the SB even get hot ? if not I wouldnt put a wb on it I took off mine on my mobo cuz at 1.8v it doesnt even get the lil hs hot lol

    well kind of busy right now missing with vista :p

    but the v2 is a good block should be one of the best out you can get

    and look like on sidewinder they should have ek blocks

    Swiftech MCP655 12v DC Pump - Retail Version $79.95

    and idk if that chipset block is big enough to cover the NB cuz the NB has a cover like the CPUs right

    I would get this one EK Waterblocks EK-NF4 rev1.1 - Acetal cuz that other Swiftech MCW30 its just flat it doesnt got the idk what there called lol look at this one see where the water goes through on that one the MCW30 its just flat so idk if the EK well cool the NB more over that one, im sure it well cuz the water is not just going straight through

    i was thinking either get that pump of rigging like a fish tank pump or something. im on a budget but i dont want to go super mega cheap.

    my gf said 100 so that leaves me with about $75 to spend of my own money.

    Im doing the same as cdawall and getting a heatercore instead of a rad.
