Default Cool it with Water!

Alright, in the next few months, potentially weeks, I want to invest myself in a case and some liquid cooling system.

1. Is there a guide I can follow? I mean, I know the basics but, I might be rusty.
2. Is there one that is end all 'perfect' or at least one that's around 100+ that I can use?

I'm looking to cool the CPU, GPU and hard drives respectively. When I get the new system up and running there will be 3 hard drives and depending on the cooling I want will determine the case I get. Please give me your best thoughts , lol, I'm poor Thank you !

You don't really need to watercool the hard drives

also, what CPu and GPU are you using?

good loops are going to be around $200 at the very least. I don't know how much more your going to get out of your cpu if thats what your going after.

the swiftech h2-220 kit is decent and its like 140 bucks. only comes with cpu block, though. supposedly it has enough cajones to add a gpu block.

Well, my room/area I live in is a dust trap. I want to entertain the idea for a better way of cooling my system and keeping it relatively quiet.

Alright, I'll research it, this falls in to my budget for the most part. I was looking at the thermaltake unit that fits in the 5.25 drive bay.
