Default About watercooling

So I've saved up some more and am thinking about trying out water cooling.

Never ever even been near this before so I need some advise.

What would be the best way of getting into this, just looking for a cpu loop and cant work out where I need to start. Some clan mates swear by the TT cases that come with watercooling but at the same time others swear they always leak and are badly manufactured.

Basically where do I need to go/find out/buy to get a basic but decent watercooling setup? I've got an antec P182 case atm which I'm not a fan of (dont like the PSU positioned on the bottom) so a new case is probably in order.

Max I can spend is about 300quid (pounds).

Cheers

I'm not positive if they ship world wide, but I'd suggest looking into Danger Den-http://www.dangerden.com/store/ . They're mostly known for their waterblocks, kits, and cases. I have a kit of theirs and a case, and I couldn't be happier.

Wouldn't recommend it...

The one I suggested will last a lot longer without having to upgrade anything.
