How much are you willing to spend?

IMO,

CPU: D-Tek fusion water block with a 4.5mm nozel I think it is.

If you want, you can save a few bucks and buy the D-Tek CPU/GPU combo and get both blocks.

For a pump look into the Laing D5.

a thermochill 120.2 radiator

and swiftech mini res.

You could. But bleeding the system takes a lot longer with a T-line/ fill port.

I prefer the reservoir. You don't lose hardly any flow rate and The swiftech mini. is well... mini.

key to water cooling, avoid thermaltake and coolermaster, and make sure you spend atleast $250+ because its gonna crap out on you if you don't

The best bit about water cooling is defying the whole Electricity+Water.

It's how geeks live on the edge.
