SWIFTECH!!! cant stress this enough. They make the best kits and the best quality parts. THeir kits come with everything you need and run about 180 bucks with cpu block, radiator with fan, pump, all fittings and hose, and the fill bleed valve system to X the tank away. You can add the 2nd radiator for 60 bucks which cools 5 degrees better and also the chipset water block and vga water block which are about 40 bucks a piece. You can find a review on www.systemcooling.com

www.newegg.com has it too search for swiftech and go the one thats h20-8600-a, which would be the one for your amd. But read the review from systemcooling that should definetly make up your mind. Also when done right this kits entirely silent.
