I'm looking to cool a q6600 on a evga 680i not sure if i'm gonna cool the nb and sb yet but more then likely gonna put my evga 8800gt on the loop

Swiftech MCP655

Swiftech MCRES-MICRO REV2

Swiftech MCB-120

Swiftech MCR320

Ok I'm putting this into a 830 stacker some how..can anyone suggest a good quad core wb and a good way to cool the 8800gt....also what size barbs, tubing, and any other thing i'm missing here please

Looks good. What CPU/GPU block? No need for cooling NB/SB imo.

As for barbs 1/2" tubing and the barbs needed to fit it. Have you read the sticky?

Known problems with overclocking Q6600 on a 680i boards.
Maybe better Bios by now. I would do more research before sinking money in to a combination that has a bad track record.

P45 would be better.

if you haven't bought a block for the 8800gt then id spend the cash on a second card as a full cover block will be like £60 and a second card probably similar price

I would second that on the full coverage blocks. Save your money and get VGA blocks and BGA ramsinks for the card memory and/or heatsinks for the MOSFETs. This solution tends to also be more future-proof as you have a better chance of using it on future cards. Besides, the memory and MOSFETs are designed to run at higher temps anyway, and seem to do quite well with heatsink/passive cooling, even when OCed.
