Default Water cooling setup?

I had a gtx260 SLI/LC thread in hardware.. and had some replies on this.. I am now posting the question in the proper place.

I tried looking some of this stuff up and I know nothing about water cooling..

Found this: Swiftech H20-220 Apex Ultima Liquid Cooling Kit: CrazyPC Computers
Same on Petras but @ a lower price: Petra's Tech Shop

Could I get something for a lot less if I build it?

Veedubfreak recommended ptnuke as what I should get to lessen algea buildup in the water..

Can you tell me more about your WC parts?
How well does it work and what are it's ratings? compared to the one I posted above?

Will it work on any quad core?

Thirdshifts pump/top and cpu block are a great deal.

I would go for a swiftech radiator instead of the danger den. Especially if you're interested in a quieter setup. The DD rad needs loud high cfm fans to perform.

Not Stealthtools I would highly recommend you go to XtremeSystems Forums - Powered by vBulletin and read the stickies in the Liquid Cooling section before you consider going the route of water cooling.

^^ as aspire said, go for a Swiftech MCR-320 rad... they're optimised for high performance with low flow fans and offer a quieter overall loop

I've been referred to them on more than one instance... I'd go thru them if I had the money.. (no cash for it yet)
