What's your budget, are you cooling just the cpu or do you want gpu cooling as well.

Kits are really not the way to go.

I am pretty sure this is what aspire feels would be appropriate. I am sure he will confirm or correct me.

1366 mounting kit Petra's Tech Shop
Laing ddc Petra's Tech Shop with

mcr 320 with yate loon fans Petra's Tech Shop
Tubing 3.8" ID 5/8" OD
You may need a rad box or other mounting parts and do not forget hose clamps or compression fitting.

Sorry aspire if I got it wrong.

I think thats pretty dead on from what I normally see him recommend.

He also recommends this tubing Petra's Tech Shop
Heres the radbox Petra's Tech Shop or you could just gut a fan and use that to mount the rad to the back of your case.

Oh and don't buy coolant, just use Distilled water with a PT Nuke Petra's Tech Shop

^ it's a good idea to get some smart coils to prevent kinking.

Interesting, I didn't know that. Why does it bend easier than regular tubing?

i made a mistake, this is the tubing that is very easily kinked. if you get this stuff Petra's Tech Shop then you need to use the smart coils. the stuff that pinscher recomended does not need the coils.

i have some of it and if it didnt allready have the smart coils then i would not be able to water cool my cpu.
