    overclock.co.uk has a fair selection, although price-wise I don't know how they compare, I've not looked into water cooling for a while now.

    I have used Coolercases before, and found them quite good! Almost instant email replies, and gave me some good advise too.

    Coolercases, over-clock and http://www.componentsuk.co.uk are also good.

    i am looking forwards to putting in watercooling in my new system after ive raised sufficient cash (ive never done watercooling before either)

    however ive been recommended www.over-clock.co.uk to check out

    they also got a couple of tutorials on how watercooling works, how to choose your parts and how to set it up

    I'm just about to go down the watercooling route, but ahve decided to go with Innovatek. They make vey good quality watercooling components and some good package deals too. You can order directly from Innovatek by going to their website (www.innovatek.de) but it's all in german, although it's not too hard to figure out whats going on, you can pay ither by credit/debit card or paypal. All rpices are in Euro's. Ot there is an English retailer called PC Water Cooling (www.pc-water-cooling.com) their prices are a quite a bit more expensive than direct from Innovatek though. I myself will by directly from innovatek now that my new credit card has arrived

    This is just my personal opinion, but it may be worth your while to check out heater cores or transmission coolers.

    I know that it may seem rather daunting to use Car parts in PC water cooling, but considering the price you pay for parts that do such a good job of dissiapating heat.
    (I'm using an Audi 90C radiator at the moment - £20 well spent )

    If you're looking for a quality CPU waterblock then you may want to look at the Storm by Swiftech or the RBX by DangerDen.

    Any sites that explain water cooling for beginners its something ive always wanted to do due to noisy fans, but have not had a clue where to start. Ive seen some kits but they look a bit dubious to me : /

    I have strong plans to water cool. I have a silverstone tj05. I want to cool the CPU, GPU and northbridge. What are the prices i am looking at?

    Also, what happens top the hdd and dvd? they still need a fan?

    Depends if you want a kit, or what type of parts.

    You should not want to cool the nb - resons:

    NB does not affect overclocking, and has no affect on performance. The only advantage of better cooling and more voltage, is to run a higher HTT multiplyer - which has little effect on scores.
    There are air coolers which fit with little modification (zalman nb hs)
    Theres only one or two blocks that fit our mobos, they can only be used on 6-10mm ID setups.

    HDDs do not need watercooling, and dvd definatly dont. Ive tryed hdd watercooling (Ive made 3 hdd waterblocks), and it worked well, but so does air.
    Think of it this way, a cpu is 50watts, with a surface of 10mm (= difficult to cool). A hdd is 15w with a surface of about 500mm square (thats a guess!) - so should be easy to cool.


    Most blocks are priced around £30-40.

    You will also need a rad, the one I linked above is by far the best value.

    You will also need a pump - get a DC12v one, as mains pumps are not very good for presure. Most DC pumps are ~£50, or theres the C-systems pumps for £30.

    Then you need res, tubing, fittings (a few 90°elbows are always usefull awell), hoseclamps, corrosion inhibitor/algycide, fans for your rad.

    So your probably looking at £170+ for a decent full watercooling setup. However note that most of the parts - rad, pump, res, etc.. will still be more than adequate in 10 years.


    procooling and bit-tech are best places for w/c help
