Hey guys

This is my new rig that i'll be buying shortly after the cpu price drop soon, tell me what you think or if anything needs changing, the parts that aren't listed i already have (hard drive monitor)

ABIT IC7-G (or ASUS P4C800 don't know which is better?)
P4 2.8c
256MB HIS 9800XT
ANTEC True Power "Quiet" 550
Xaser 1000+
2x512Mb Corsair PC4000PRO
Innovatek Watercooling Kit
or a SP94 with a good fan like a tornado (not worried about noise) i'm want to get a FSB of 1000 out of it which means 3.5 at least

Advice, comments, suggestions??

Thanx

oh i forgot to mention

I've never used water cooling before (or for that matter overclocked seriously) but i've been studying it a lot and it seems straight foward as long as you get all the instructions availible. But this was my reason for going for a water cooling kit rather than a put together job.

Try having a look at <A HREF="http://www.waterchill.com" target="_new">http://www.waterchill.com&lt;/A> Ive seen the innnovatek kits and these ones from asetek look slightly better. If you live in england you can get them from <A HREF="http://www.overclockers.co.uk" target="_new">http://www.overclockers.co.uk&lt;/A> or <A HREF="http://www.overclock.co.uk" target="_new">http://www.overclock.co.uk&lt;/A>.
Both the IC7 and the P4C800 are good boards, but i think the best board for overclocking is the IC7-max3.
It depends on the CPU you get whether or not you will be able to get to 3.5, some 2.8's may get to 3.5 on air cooling while others will struggle with watercooling. However its a good bet that as long as your northbridge is sufficiently cooled you can get close to 3.5 on air (i've heard quite a few cases of it being done).

Thanx

considering going for air cooling then if that will suffice, i'm going to be trying to get the good 2.8c batch# CPU's hopefully i'll manage to find someone who stocks those

As for Asetek, I was looking at overclockers.com's roundup of watercooling kits and the innovatek scored as one of the top, quite a bit higher than Asetek.

Is there a big difference (from the point of veiw of overclocking between the IC7-G and IC7-max3??

Also i'm in Australia so i haven't got the greatest selection, really the shops over here suck hard but i can usually manage to find someone who stocks a product I want (except for OCZ memory)

Thanx for the responce
