Ok, do any other manufacturers produce these items, and are there any cheaper ?

The reserator is the one for cooling both your CPU and GPU, and overclockers sell the bits needed.

Overclockers

Your after the Zalman Reserator 1 Fanless Water Cooling System (WC-000-ZA) and the Zalman ZM-GWB1 Water Cooling VGA block for Reserator 1 (WC-001-ZA).

It comes with a CPU block by default.

Look at the image for Zalman Reserator 1 Fanless Water Cooling System (WC-000-ZA). The bit thats on the end of the pipes leading from the blue tower.

O right, lol, how did i miss that ? I might go with something else though . £160 seems like a lot of money.

What do you think of this http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...lete_Kits.html

scroll down to:

"WaterChill KT03-L20/220V CPU Value Cooling Kit - 120mm Radiator/Fan (03-L-3009) (WC-021-VP) "

If your happy with doing stuff like that its fine.

Assuming you have a plan for some sort of cooling reservoir.

A few of us made something like this in college - (A-Levels not the US equivalent of Uni) and it worked out fine. Its one of the things that made me put a PC in a thermal goop filled freezer.

Yeah I had, but there are others who are from the USA which is why i mentioned it.

You can't just send the water round and round and hope it will cool off. It needs somewhere to float around with its mates, have a few pints and chill out basically. A fish tank would do, or a fish bowl. In order for me to work out the size of the bowl I would need loads of data and i don't want to do that since i dislike thermodynamics.

Also you need a few case fans to make sure condensation doesn't start to build up on the pipes and drip down onto other componants.
