As the title states, this is my first venture into water cooling and fairly heavy(as far as I'm concerned) modding all at the same time!
I have been collecting the various parts for the last, probably, six months. Been going over what I wanted to do, planning and such, for about that long. I either got a killer deal on a given item new, or got it 2nd hand from the various forums I am active in, Ebay, etc. So I paid "full price" for nothing here, much of the addon parts or "for looks" parts were free.
First, the parts list. As I said, some of these parts I have had for nearly a year, some things I picked up a few days ago. I have not done any OC'ing on the CPU yet, but it is running around 10c cooler.
