(i) search the forum for similar questions
(ii) tell us what you actually want to do with that setup
(iii) tell us how much money you want to spend
(iv) tell us what systems you have looked at, and what you like and dislike about them.

I personally use the Koolance Exos

http://www.koolance.com/products/produc ... egory_id=2

I went with this system mainly because when the BTX formfactor kicks in I wanted to have a cooling kit that I could use without too many modifications (other than the cpu block of course). It was fairly painless to install as well and had better feedback overall than the Zalman external cooling solution.

DangerDen TDX 775CPU block with extra o-rings and nozzles: $57.94

HPPS 12v pump: $99

Hardware Labs 120mm BlackIce Pro radiator: $50

The choice of using a reservoir or not is up to you, but they're fairly cheap. At most, I say $50 here for something like the Innovatek Tank-o-matic plug-on. But there's cheaper ones, or you can just use a T-line fill port and forget the res all together.

With that, you have room left to get your tubing, cooling, and fittings. Avoid ADDING Innovatek fittings. They're purty, but they're expensive. If they're on there already, fine. These fittings can nickle-and-dime ya to death! I got into $50 of fittings last round before noticing. This time, I was a bit more alert. And don't forget the $18 fan.

I agree with these components as a base. Especially the block. IMO TDX is da shiz. Rad is all dependent upon what/where you want it to be. If its in the case you may not have many option depending on the size of your case. I love big case with dual 120MM rads. You can get a smoking setup for under $300.
