Default what is the best watercooling option for me

Im looking to upgading to a water cooling system as I currently am getting high temperatures and it is getting close to summer. I don't want to run the risk of burning out hardware. Last year my RAM had a problem and I believe it was due to overheating. I have never used water cooling before and can't figure out what is best for me.

I am also looking to adding more onto my PC which is another reason why I want to get water cooling.

So what is a good kit to buy? I normally buy from Computer hardware and software at amazing prices, available online from Scan Computers UK. My system specs are in my signature.

Whatever you do don't get a cheap 100-200 kit as a cheap waterblock such as a Bigwater as it can't beat a good CPU cooler such as the Tuniq.

If your going water...go all out

a kit that costs 200 bucks is still a great kit. If I hadnt cooled my gfx card as well as my cpu my setup would have run me about 200
