Default 2nd build amd to intel maybe water check it out lots of pics

lately i missed playing games after i sold my old pc, so im building a new one, should be fun. budget is is about 400-500, i have a moniter
parts and prices
-q6600, def. water cooled-70
-gtx260 core 216, maybe watercooled-120
-vista 64bit-30
-250 gig sata hdd-25
-dvd drive samsung-20
-card reader-0
-gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R mobo-60
-Crucial Ballistix Tracer 4gb 1066 5-5-5-15 2v-50
-Antec NeoPower 650w-50
-corsair water cooling ex200 with random waterblock-50
-antec P182 case(going to paint and whatnot)-50
all parts were tested good

mobo looks great, only one pcix16 though

no this is where it gets tricky

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


ohh look one of the many xclamps off of a rrod, fits the block perfect but


will end up screwing to the mod. bracket for more support like so


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




looks like the cpu and heatsink didnt have full contact

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
