are you looking for an all in one type thing? do you want to buy things one by one ie. pump then block then hosing. and do you wanna have anything like the zalman respirator? you have a lot of options with that kind of case. and also how much do you want to cool? just CPU or also GFX and RAM and NB and PSU? theres a lot of considerations.

probably just psu and ram.. as for the videocard its an all in wonder 9600xt really dont want to overclock that. Wont be much of a gain and besides its already slightly bumped up from the factory (not sure why the all in wonder has a higher clock and ram than the regular 9600xt). As for style probably something basic and all in one. I can already crank some high speeds with the coolmaster aero 7 have the 2500 barton running at 2.2. The case is so big that the airflow is just really good.

Folks seem attracted to the thermaltake big water for a first step, but I'm not too big on it unless a strict budget is in mind. I'd be quicker to suggest a Swiftech H20-80 REV. 3 for a smart little beginner kit.

But, nothing is wrong at all with a DIY, as there's a lot of info and parts out there these days. I think I find a new product once a week! Asetek and Danger Den make some great blocks, Hardware Labs makes a lot of different Radiators (Danger Den again) to fit a lot of applications, Clear Flex tubing is a buck a foot, and the new little swiftech pump or the big HPPS 12v pumps are pretty hard to beat...I think you can piece something together fairly easily and you'll have fun designing your own work of art!

Today I tripped across AquaComputer and am in love with their HDD racks. I figured I should try them out sometime this spring. Sounds fun, and it's one more fan I can ditch (CM stacker HD rack).

Yup! And if you didn't catch it too quickly, their US retailer is SNT systems.

I really dig that some of their stuff is different than all these copy-cat parts. Lexan is everywhere it seems, and I'm growing sick of it already. And that Ti color on their HD cooler fits right into what I'm aiming at.

There's just periods of floods on questions about H2O. I had a run last month of no less than 9 different members PM'ing about watercooling. Given multiple ply/reply, it adds up.

I'll do what I can on a basic, and we'll update it as questions roll on the thread to bring it to an advanced level if needed. Folks, watch for this in the next week or so and add your comments and questions. My tutorials are usually based on my own opinions, experiences, and theories. Sooo...it may differ from what a fat budget'd site may put out.

Thanks dude...I needed a new project. I'll rip this thing down this week and get started. I now have a wire sleeving tutorial and a watercooling tutorial on my plate. that should keep me employed around here :D
