Arrow Water cooling

Ok, sense i made a few extra dineros, i think i am going to go with water cooling.

My first choice was to buy another eVGA 7800GT and buy a better PSU [ SLI ready one obviously] But instead i decided to go with water cooling...

DD D5 + TDX CPU block = 108 dollars + shipping
Black Ice Pro II = 25 dollars
Maze 4 GPU = 35 dollars
DD UV tubing ** how many feet do i need 10 would work? ** - 10 ft = 22 dollars
10 clamps- 20 dollars
Anti corrosion stuff - 5 dollars
5.25" reservoir - 20 dollars

Total of 235

+ 2 120mm fans

250 ish Approx.

Comments, bad things, good things eh?

Try and get a G5 Storm from Swiftech, which is basically the same design as the original from Cathar except this isn't actually made by him...should be the same thing except significantly cheaper

get a t-line instead of reservoir. yea and as gaara said, a g5 would be a better choice then the D5. and get some tygon tubing if you want to spend the money.... and you can run your loop with only distilled water and a little anti-freeze.

go cathar see aussies can make contributions in computing. i'm thinking of trying to make my own waterblock based from one of his designs. no doubt i'll mess it up but it will be fun. pzero do you have a dremel? you can make your own water blocks with a dremel, drill press, tapping set and some ingenuity
