First off I am going to apologize because it seems that I never start usefull topics, only questions. I do try to contribute when other people ask questions and to the various topics that are started here. That said, are there any watercooling kit that fit into an athlon 64 socket that you guys know of?

I personally have the DangerDen RBX for my Athlon64 3400+, but i think it's discontinued, so you could go with the TBX also from dangerden, it's a great waterblock, you could also look at the ZALMAN WB2 Gold, it's universal, and advantage is that it doesn't require high flow pump. It's very nice block, much cheaper than the Danger Den TDX, if i were you i'd go with the Zalman waterblock.

Pump i'd recommend the Eheim 1250 or Hydor L30(make sure it's rev3) the Hydor is a little better for cheaper price, it's a bit stronger and it's submergible in a reservoir, but easily modded to inline.

Radiator i'd recommend you going to a local junkyard and picking up a car's heatercore or radiator, or you could always look at hardware labs' radiators, they're definently the best watercooling radiator makers.

you might as well watercool your graphics card, get the Danger Den Maze4 GPU block it's 1 of the best waterblocks out there, and it's universal, i'm personally very very happy with its performance.

scotty how far have you o/c your a64?
Cause I was thinking of investing in some better ram and trying to o/c my 2800. I've never had the thing over 41 degrees overload at stock so i think i should have some decent headroom.

Hehe i got mine nearly 2.7ghz:D  with 2.0Vcore, not stable at all though. Right now i'm running at 11x230 which is nearly 2.55Ghz, but it only needs 1.8vcore to reach that. And what's funny is my Generic Samsung reached 250 when it's rated for 200, but i guess 3.2Vdimm must had something to do with it.

Oh yeah also, the highest FSB i've obtained using 1:1 ratio was 263 with 3xHT. I couldn't believe that my samsung with heatspreaders did that. a good old 3.4 vdimm stabilized it, but even with 60mm fan blowing onto the heatspreaders i still didn't want to touch the heatspreader.

You'll need to find a specialty cooling store, such as SVC, i'm not familiar with watercooling stores in the US, so somebody else'll have to help u with where to locate these parts. The ones i mentioned are the most popular ones, and are priced very reasonable.

hmm ok I will do some research. Thanks for the help. BTW what are the specs on your computer? Meaning video card/mobo/ect. Curious since we have the same processor.
