a few months ago I put together a new system (with the help of these forums, once again, many thanks for that). Allthough I am very happy with this system I am considering watercooling. My primary goal is to make my system more quiet. If I ever decide to overclock watercooling should also allow for a higher overclock.

My System:

  • Antec Tree Hundred
  • Asus P5Q-E
  • Intel Q9550
  • Corsair twin2x4096-6400C5 (2x2GB DDR2 800)
  • Corsair TX750W
  • WD Caviar Green 640GB
  • Sapphire Radeon HD4850x2 2GB

    I've been googling a bit, read some guides and stickies and my idea so far is to look for a configuration with a pump, a reservoir, a T-Line, waterblocks for my CPU, GPU and northbridge and a radiator with 2 120mm fans.

    I don't have any experience with watercooling, so I don't know what would be a good setup and which parts I should choose.

    I found this waterblock for my video card: XSPC Razor 4850X2. Are there other choices ? Would this be a good idea ?

    As you can see, I am seeking for advice.

    If you have ideas to help me out here, feel free share them,
