    WC (No i dont mean Water Closet)

    How much does it really cost to set up WC?

    Say a e6600 reaching 4 Ghz
    or a e6300 doubling itself.

    Im thinking of getting wet... so any info is worth it or just what you did for your system... Im not thinking of the high end stuff though still got rent to pay

    If you are looking at watercooling conroe Clunk is probably one of the best to talk to - he has experience of overclocking both the e6600 and the e4300 - with a reasonable amount of success

    Depends what you want to achieve. You can go for silence, or for performance, or both, with varying degrees of expense.

    You can also start worrying about every little detail to shave of 0.5c here and there

    Depending on your budget and what you want to cool, I would suggest;

    Thermochill PA120.2 (works well with low rpm/cfm fans, and widely considered the best)
    CPU block - D-Tek fusion/Aquaxtreme mp-05 pro LE/Swiftech Apogee GT/ Swiftech storm. (not much difference between them really for most people, but I understand that the D-tek is the best for quad core.
    GPU block - depending on budget again, you can go for a full cover block from the likes of EK or Dangerden, these are generally a lot more expensive than the blocks that just cover the GPU itself, such as the Maze 4/5.
    Pump - Laing DDC or Laing D5 (both of these come under various different brand names), both good pumps.

    Rough prices - 50 ish for the rad (25 upwards for cheap ones)
    30-50 for a cpu block (cheaper are available)
    15-100 for GPU block
    40-80 for the pump depending on model

    The stuff you see in my sig came in at about £250, is silent as a dormouse, and id be amazed if it had trouble cooling even the hottest of chips. That said however, youll need a big case to fit it all in, and it isnt quite as sexy as this (follow link at your wallet's peril)

    I recently bought a Corsair Nautilus as an easy intro to WC.
    It seems to get pretty good reviews for what it is although I'm sure that experienced WC users can assemble better for the money.

    over-clock.co.uk is where all my stuff (except the storm, which is from scan) came from, excellent service, and jsut down the road from me. Kustom PCs are also good for some stuff.

    Are there are blocks you can use on a 8800 GTS? I suppose even using a block you cant clock the memory much?

    I think thats the idea of full cover blocks - they do cool the memory aswell..
