If you are cost consious then a kit isn't for you. Kits cost more then they are worth in terms of cooling power. I built my cooling system from scratch and it was high end 2 years ago. I think the total was $250-300 for everything. Check out these places:

www.dangerden.com
www.swiftnets.com
www.dtekcustoms.com
www.crazypc.com
www.frozencpu.com
www.cooltechnica.com
www.xoxide.com


I bought all my stuff from dtek, dangerden, and xoxide. Excellent sites...

I think that someone will probably say, READ read read read read up on watercooling and know what there is to know first, not something to just "hop" into. If you take that approach, ive never done WC before, but im sure someone will tell ya, youll have a lot of silicon to toss away.
