Default Re: Building a Water cooled PC! Advice ect.

I agree with what stncttr908 said above.

Is there a reason you're in love with koolance? Because from what I hear, they make mediocre products. Sure they look cool, but if you want performance, you need to go custom setup. I'm running a Q6600 with an 8800gtx as well. I'm using the Swiftech Apogee GTX cpu block and a dangerden 8800gtx full cover gpu block. I would recommend going to 1/2" or 7/16" tubing rather than 3/8". But that's up to you I guess....

And don't bother cooling the chipset, it will just add a huge resistance in your loop with no real performance benefit.

I'm using a Laing DDC pump with a petra'stech custom top. I also highly recommend petra'stech. GREAT service.
