Is this a good water cooling kit for a noob?

I was looking at some watercooling kits because I want to try to watercool my Core i7 860 but I didn't want to spend a lot a wanted one that was easy to assemble and everything.

I was thinking this:
GIGABYTE GH-WIU02 3D Galaxy II Liquid Cooling:

Can you tell me if this will keep my temps down and be easy enough for me. Thanks

More about good water cooling noob
  1. From my limited (well no) experience with water-cooling, there is no good water cooling kit for a "noob", because installing a water-cooling system is pretty advanced stuff. I myself would try to see what I can do with fans before even considering liquid-cooling.
  2. Well I'm pretty smart with computers and a bunchof people can help me too. I'm pretty sure i'd be able to do it.
  3. There are plenty of of air coolers that are cheaper and will work just as well for your uses as a self described noob.
  4. If you are persistent in getting a noob watercooling kit (hey it's a free world)...I found you this,

  5. This is the Cooler I've been looking at "Corsair CWCH50-1 Hydro H50 CPU Liquid Cooler - 120mm Fan, Copper Cold Plate, Aluminum Radiator, LGA775, LGA1366, LGA1156, AM2/AM3". It's $75

    (Here is the link)
  6. the radiator in that galaxy kit is way too small to do any serious overclocking. same for the h50. i actually owned the corsair h50 and i just switched over to a real water cooling system. If you want the h50 ive got it sitting next to me right now.
