So I want to try out water-cooling. I watched a few videos on it, installation and everything, but I want to know the community's opinion on the best items to get (for cheap) for water cooling?


Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
AMD FX-8320 @3.5GHz/4.0GHz Turbo
Mushkin Enhanced Blackline DDR3 8GB (4GBx2)
XFX Radeon 6770 HD (1GB)
596GB WD HDD 7200 RPM
Gigabyte 970A AM3+ Socket Motherboard
HP 2009m 1600x900 Display
Rosewill Challenger Mid-ATX Gaming Case

I plan on upgrading the GPU in the future, so should I water cool that as well? (Probably going for the GTX 680 or Radeon equivalent)

So what would be the full list of things I would need to water cool my CPU/Future GPU? (on a budget, the cheaper the better)

I assume you have read the sticky? If not I suggest you do.

For value, a lower end XSPC Raystorm kit is a great option and are upgradable in the future if you want to add a GPU and more radiator in. An RS240 kit with the X20 750 pump is available at FrozenCPU from ~$140.

Thanks, I'll look into them. I breezed through the sticky, my bad :p  I'll look at it fully.
(Nice build by the way, I looked at your Red-Chalk thread)
