Ok so I have a antec P182 case, a 8800gts 512, and I plan on upgrading to a Q6600 over my current e2160 (OC'd). My question is BigWater 760i 2U Drive Bay Liquid Cooling System a good beginning liquid cooling system? I do not want to deal much with the complexity and I like the fact that I can put it in the drive bays that I am not using. Why I want to switch from air is that I want a more quiet system with better cooling. I plan to overclock the q6600 to 3.0ghz and would like it to cool the 8800gts as well. Would it be able to handle both CPU and GPU, be more quiet than air, and cool better than air? Thanks

Any good h2o kit can handle that. Heck, the q6600 can be overclocked on stock cooling.

I wouldn't recommend that kit unless you can get it for half the retail price. It does cool well, according to some reviews. The thing to look for in h2o cooling is quality + performance. TT isn't known for quality except maybe for their high-end cases.

If you want a pre-built kit, go with:

Swiftech H20-120 Compact CPU Liquid Cooling Kit

You can cool cpu, nb/sb & gpu all at the same time, but it'll cost you. And you'd have to spend a few hours installing & testing the loop.
