Default Water Cooling Questions.

What would you need to buy to have a fully Water Cooled PC. I have no experience in Building Water cooled PCs and I know absolutely nothing about the Components you have to buy.

Am I correct in thinking you need: A pump, a reservoir, tubing, cooling liquid, a radiator. Is their anything else you would need. How would this fit to gether and what does the average cost if parts are bought \ sold separately.

EDIT: This is the case I'm thinking of Buying.

You also need cooling blocks and cleaning/maintain stuff.
Plus incase you didn't include it, fittings for the tubes

Basically this kit

What can you tell me about Water Cooling. Is it a Cheap alternative to Air Cooling or is it by rule of thumb more expensive.

Would that Kit be compatible with the Case I mentioned. Would this be good for a Socket 775 Wolfdale Xeon CPU - E3110 .

Is their any cheaper options available.

It's way more expensive. If you just want to cool the CPU get a Corsair Hydro cooler.

To fit this.

ASRock > ConRoe1333-D667 R1.0

With a Xeon 64 Bit Wolfdale Socket 775 Chip. E3110 ..

What do you think of that set up.
