Does anyone have any recommendations for water coolers that can handle both the cpu and gpu at the same time. Or will I have to go with just water cooling the cpu. I have been looking at the aquarius III and it seems decent but I believe it only does one.

What do you think of the asetek waterchill-KT03A-L30. It can handle both, has two 120 fans and a large radiator, and a pump that does 1200l/h.

Yes, I am new to the water scene, I'm hoping to get a P4 3.2C up to or close to 4. What would be necessary for that.

I have an idea, why don't you have peltier waterblocks, and also peltier radiator, stuff that peltier radiator in a mini fridge, that may work very well. Get some serious peltiers on the radiator cooling pipes like 8 blocks of 226watt peltiers. It'll be bad if the water froze in the radiator tubes.

Alright, well there is a small chance of this actually coming together, the pc that is. I know that Corsair's DDR550 will definitely help, and the Asus P4C800-E Deluxe board will be great as well. Those are the things I am planning on getting. Now I've just been searching for excellent cooling. I know that alot rides on how lucky you get with the processor, so perhaps I will get lucky. Also, anyone have recommendations for a case. Im looking at chieftec dragons, so something along those lines. Thanks

Oh, I meant the P4E I believe not C,I meant the newest prescott, the one actually capable of going to 4+ Ghz. The one with D0 stepping.

Hmm, I've never heard of that problem, I have read plenty of articles on people OC'ing on them with adjustments to V-core. Are you sure its still an issue in the E series?

I would personnally get a P4 2.8c and overclock to 3.5Ghz you can be pretty confident that you will get that high and you will also get the advantage of 250Mhz FSB...with a 3.2 you might not be able to get that. I also think that the prescotts are still not worth it when the northwoods are the same price.

Im using the KT12-L30 and it is a great beginners water kit. I highly recommend it. If you wanna overclock a lot you might wanna think of getting a similar kit, it cools the northbridge as well.

Well the Abit board seems to be slighly faster as well, but it looks like some components might get cramped. What about cases though, I will need one that can comfortable store all the water equipment, and what is the best way for putting in the radiator. Should I cut a hole in the case for the radiator to blow the air out?

I used a chieftec full tower case and cut holes in the top for the radiator.
