    Question Which watercooling kit or components?

    Hey guys i have done watercooling in the past (had asetek waterchill dual rad etc). But the pump died and ive been on air cooling for ages. Im gonna be upgrading my comp in the next few weeks to this spec

    AMD X2 4400
    2gb Crucial Ballistix
    Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe
    Seasonic 6002att psu
    Nvidia 7800GTX ,maybe Atis new one not sure(dont see much crossfire floating about)
    I have Akasa Eclipse-62 Aluminum Case which is pretty big.

    Now what i need help with is if someone could help me put together a waterkit for all thsi new stuff. Mainly to kool cpu and grapihcs. If i could use my current asetek dual radiator that would be handy. If not thats ok.

    I also think i mite need to mod my case to mount the dual rad. Any ideas on the best way to do this?

    Thanx once again for your help guys!

    I have something similar, but my Asus mobo just went pop, so I swapped for a DFI. You can get the CPU, GPU and chipset blocks from Asetek, and use your existing setup. I got this:

    http://www.asetek.com/main/page.asp?sideid=694

    But it's way overkill for what I use. Even under load, my rad (with only 2 fans running at low speed) is cool to the touch. I also pulled out the fans which came with my case as they have little power control switches on them. I don't use the USB functionality as I mounted everything on top of my case and the cable doesn't reach.

    Let me know if you want any more info!

    How well does the 4400 Overclock dude? I was thinking of getting the new swiftech APEX watercooler it looks to be a very good setup.

    The reason i aint getting that asus premium board is because it is passively cooled which in my opinion aint too gd for overclocking. Thats why im sticking to the deluxe.
