you can search for all in one solutions for the 480, but usually they come pre-built, like from EVGA or something.

as for a full watercooling system, there are TONS of stuff to consider. Tubing, fittings, pump, radiator, reservoir, blocks etc etc etc. you're better to just read up on it.

I would stay far away from Dangerden.

You will need at least a triple 120mm radiator, pump, res, tubing, and fittings.

Check out these places.

You could get something like this...

1x http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/swmcqupo4xbl.html

And whatever tubing you want.

Other brands that are awesome:
EK, Koolance, Bitspower
I highly recommend compression fittings and 3/8 ID 5/8 OD tubing. Look at Danger Den Monsoon pump/reservoir combo

Right. The only things I have bought from them have been piles of ****. CPU waterblock performed terribly, the mounting system was retarded and designed cheap. Same with the stealth radiator.

Look at their new 590 water block. It looks like someone had a seizure while designing it in autocad or maybe they just loved penis.

Which block would you rather buy.

Please prove this for me... If it is really true my block must have been broken. I got a 20c load temp just from going to the TDX to a Swiftech XT. Not only did I go from a retarded crappy home depot mounting system to a well though out perfect mounting system on the swiftech block.

So, everyone who buys a stealth radiator is a noob? Nice logic. I bought it due to space restrictions at the time. It actually worked ok with the swiftech block. Obviously it's not the best radiator.

My bad, it doesn't say who it's made by on the website.

Most of my pc's have been water cooled. BTW, my penis is larger than yours, but smaller than the Dangerden 590 penis.

Correct. But don't waste money on "fluid". Just use distilled water with a silver kill coil or the right amount of pt nuke.
