    Well, common, these people want silence and beauty Leeum, ocing is a different story. And by the way, your silver case mod on Bittech is very nice.

    Danger Den Maze4 GPU? - ~£30 -> GPU (graphic card) block

    HWLabs BIX - ~£40 -> aka Black Ice Extreme, the radiator
    (@LeeUmh : isn't this thing use 1/2'' OD tubing with push-on connector)

    Danger Den Bayres - ~£15 -> Reservoir

    Panaflo L1A 120MM - ~£10 -> Fan

    1/2" ID Tubing - ~£7 -> Don't think it needs explanation.
    Pump - Hydor's have reliability issues. I'd suggest an eheim or laing (DD/swiftech) pump. The DD D4 (AKA swiftech MCP650) is a solid pump.

    CPU block - get the TDX of those two, the maze 4 is getting on a bit and is has inferior performance.

    Rad - a heatercore is cheaper and likely better performing, but a BIX is easier to set up. Depends how much effort you want to expend.

    Tubing - clearflex or tygon are the one's to look out for, they are higher quality tubes. Cheap stuff will work, but probably won't last as well and is much less flexible.

    also:
    www.overclock.co.uk www.over-clock.co.uk are two sites which carry a lot of WC gear.

    www.watercoolingshop.com also has a wide range and generally cheaper than other places.

    Whilst we're on the subject:

    How noisey is a watercooled system? - can't you hear the pump??

    Won't you still need fans to cool the rest of the computer? Can you cool the GFX chip etc....

    Is their an advantage to using water cooling for those who don't overclock? -quiter??

    If you put the pump on a foam or something like that, it's not likely you gonna hear anything. And 12v pump can be controlled, like fan, as long as the controller is adequate.
    You can cool a Gfx chip, of course, and NB. You could always use silent fan for other stuff. The reserator is a perfect example of quiet wc
