it comes with all of the following:

* TDX Universal Block - Fits most* motherboards on the market including the NEW AMD AM2 boards. Feature a Shiny Black Powder Coat finish!
* Danger Den D5 Fixed Speed Laing Pump
* Single 5 1/4 Bay reservoir
* 1/2" ID Tygon Tubing
* Black Ice Xtreme Radiator
* MCT Non-Conductive Coolant
* Yate Loon Medium 120mm Fan
* Miscellaneous Hardware

so yeah, it's a complete kit for $225

I personally never had any problems adding one graphics card to the loop but, I don't know what adding a 2nd one would do. You can always get Zalman vf-1000 coolers for cards... they really do work very well.

That's a huge fan...I'll probably just put a water block on my top card because it's my hottest, then I'll balls up and put a second one.

So did the OP decide on what to buy? Read the tread and curious to hear reports.

I'm in a similar boat with warm room temps causing too much darn fan noise for my taste; mainly so far its my stock cpu fan thats speeding up to cause the irritation. I want silence!!!

Would a good air cpu cooler be quiet and cool enough? Don't have much experience with aftermarket cpu cooling solutions. Would be lots cheaper than a $150+ water cooling system.

If you're going to go water cooling do it right, get a "kit" from Danger Den or some place like that and get a decent one or you may find a whole new meaning for the word FAIL.

^^ Listen to these guys. I bought a $100 WC kit before, it worked okay, but in reality a high end air cooler cools better than most of the smaller WC kits. I was only cooling a CPU and NB, if you tried to throw a GPU into that loop, it would suprise me one bit if you start having heating issues.

Actually on a Quad core a freezone can't handle the the amount of heat being dissapated, so it really starts to lag behind even high end air coolers.

A lot of people here tried them out but they had many issues with failures on the units, so went back to air / water setups.
