man, PM or IM aspire.comptech... hes the man to ask for ANYTHING to do with water cooling... and hes usually a pretty nice guy when it comes to questions... so talking to him would be your best bet...
very few people in these forums ACTUALLY water-cool... so youre not likely to find anyone whos super-knowledgeable... only those who know from what they read/hear... which isnt tootoo bad, but... aspire has the experience to give you a much more definitive answer, i daresay...
good luck - RK

Well, I froogled Danger Den Kit and the cheapest result was $199 so it looks like a good price, but I know nothing about WC.

danger den kit - Google Product Search

Watercooling scares me.

I dunno about WC kits but $125 for a whole kit/set is actually very good.

Do you know if the water block is the MC-TDX or if it's just the standard.

If it isn't the MC "Multi-Core" your performance will not be as good as it should.

However, here's what I advise you to do.

Buy the kit, sell the block it comes with on ebay or w/e.

Then buy these parts.

Now I don't know what kind of tubing your friend has as the pump you have listed uses 3/8" barbs while everything else is normally 1/2". It would probably be safe to say your going to need to buy new 1/2" inner diameter tubing.

Like this

Petra's Tech Shop

And then about 5 of these barbs.

Once you have all that that will be a great kit.


All said that would wind up costing you about 210 bucks give or take.

Tygon Tubing FTW. Stick with it.

Danger*Den*::*Water*Blocks...

That block's great, I know a lot of people that use it and they're happy with it.

There really isn't a huge difference between tygon and masterkleer.

Save for some slight differences in bend radii, they are virtually identical.

Oh I wasn't saying their was a huge different or anything, it's just a suggestion. It's just a brand that I use and that people I know only use.

I use the masterkleer. had to use the reinforcing coil to prevent kinks but works like a charm. i wanted the coil for looks anyway.
