if you want a REALLY goot water cooling system, you are gunna have to pay some money.

For all my cooling stuff on my old machine, i spent over 800 bucks on it. Had a 3 fan rad, 1/2 inch tubing, blocks on both vid cards, cpu, bridge, . had a 200w peltier on the cpu with a supplementary 300w psu in one of my bays
