no this is where it gets tricky
http://i556.photobucket.com/albums/s...pcbuild004.jpg
this bracket is from the old heatsink, but the waterblock is from some old amd, im keeping it hough and modding the bracket, needs some grinding/cutting
http://i556.photobucket.com/albums/s...pcbuild005.jpg

ohh look one of the many xclamps off of a rrod, fits the block perfect but
http://i556.photobucket.com/albums/s...pcbuild006.jpg
http://i556.photobucket.com/albums/s...pcbuild007.jpg
will end up screwing to the mod. bracket for more support like so
http://i556.photobucket.com/albums/s...pcbuild008.jpg

i bought the cpu, heatsink, mobo together
and when i seperated heres what i got

http://i556.photobucket.com/albums/s...pcbuild033.jpg
http://i556.photobucket.com/albums/s...pcbuild035.jpg

Where on earth did you get a q6600 for $70.

You sure it wasn't an e6600?

^ it'll be fine. just be sure NOT to use tap water. USE ONLY DISTILLED. or else it will screw your pump up.

When I filled my watercooling system up, I used water from the filtering jug we have, and boiled it. Then added some coolant (which is supposed to be for car radiators, but works fine)

Just empty it out and replace the water with distilled. Regular water has various minerals in it which over time will build up on everything. If you've only had regular water in it for a few days you won't have a problem :D
