    ok here is a cooling system i have been looking at..it cost 170$....i love the dual 120mm fans that come with it though i dont really need to worry about space.i have the old dragon server cases(old alienware case) its huge..let me know if its a good deal or if there is better for same or less price...here are the specs

    Features:
    1/2" (Tubing OD) combined with 330 GPH pump for optimal flow rate.
    Extreme performance water-bocks with patent pending Diamond-Pin Matrix?technology.
    Slim profile radiator assembly with dual 120mm fan, each rated at 55 CFM (25dBA) each. Radiator installation may require extensive case modifications.
    Pump and fill & leed assembly are pre-installed in a tray to fit into a 5 1/4" bay : no reservoir is needed, resulting in space saving, and uncluttered installation.
    Quick-connect fittings, for safe and expeditious installation
    Plug-and-play water-block installation, doesn't require removing the motherboard
    Pump relay switch to couple the pump operations to computer power-supply.

    Well those parts look ok, though I do worry about small pumps (size of, not flow rate), but what about the water block and are ya goin' to cool the GPU as well? :?:

    Well for under $150 dollars I would do:
    Mag3 (with propellor mod, you must do this)
    Tubing
    Dtek WhiteWater block
    Dtek Procore radiator with shroud
    Swiftech relay
    If you want a GPU block
    Maze4 GPU block or Maze3, up to you.

    Also, DO NOT GET THE SWIFTECH KIT. The new one is better, but still not as good as mentioned above.
