1/2" Blue/UV Blue High Flex Hose (XSPC) - Hose Length 5 Meters


just for the cpu and nb for now, just under £165 for the lot.

im thinking about modding the roof of my case, fitting the rad on the top under the grill and the fans on the inside with holes drilled so the loop is all internal.

parts from http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/ so if you know of anywhere better in the uk im interested as i am for better parts for the price.

all and any imput welcomed :toast:

There are better performing CPU Blocks on the market. Look into Swiftech, D-Tek, and EK Waterblocks. Those three are, from what I've read, the best performing.

i can only fit a double on my case, well im not 100% sure about that but i think i can make one fit with a bit of dremmling.

i have this

in my roof so i plan to cut away the plastic of the top cover so all thats left is the vent and if pos cut 2 holes to the right on the pic so i can run the tubes into the rad from the inside and keep it all internal. this will give me the option of adding another single rad later to the rear 120mm fan for my gpu if it needs it (read when i can afford it :D )

reviewfor case

off looking :D

I'm confused about your res/pump choice. I can't find what you are referring to.
