Most common setup that a majority of people have including myself that's very effective is:
TDX Cpu block
Clearflex tubing (Tygon is more expensive and is considered 'the best' but clearflex will be just fine unless you just REALLY must have tygon)
If I were you, I'd simply spend $25 on a heatercore and mod it yourself. Here are some instructions:
Note what it says at the bottom of the sticky I first linked you to though...that modding page uses a different heatercore. The 1977 bonneville heatercore model 2-302 is the best. It's super easy to mod yourself too. There are more 'advanced' ways of modding it, but you dont have to get crazy to make a real nice effective heatercore.
You can see my heatercore at the top:
Sooo basically it's
Pump - $75
CPU Block - $50
Heatercore - approx $25-$35 after modding it, may cost you a couple bucks for modding.
That's $150-ish right there....after you add tubing you'll be a little over $160 and you can save some cash and room in your computer by simply getting a T-line. If you dont know what that is, simply go to dangerden.com and look for their t-lines under tubing & accessories and you'll see what it is. You can see mine in the picture....it's where it "T"s off, literally, hence the name. And theres a thing called a fillport at the top made for easy filling.
All in all you'd be closer to $175 actually, but it's still good considering it's awesome performance. I got a GPU block as well so that's another $50 but other than that, I have everything I just listed to you.
