for the pump just get one of the small swiftech 400l/hour pumps because i don't think you would need a 1200l/hour pump. radiator depends on your choice but i would get a dual 120mm radiator for best performance/space ratio. i still say you should try and get a storm waterblock they are dang good. i could link you to a thread were the designer originally shared it with the world ?

do you really want to go cheap on something that is going to be pumping liquid through your probably $1k+ computer?

Well one of those $100 kits is probably going to end up performing much worse and require more maintenence than an $80 aftermarket heatsink...so there's really no point to them

Well I got the Thermaltake Bigwater SE and it's great. It's already shown a 6*C drop in temps, after 5 minutes of using it. The AS5 hasn't even set in yet. I'll run Prime95 overnight and post back with results. Oh yea and some pictures
