    Default water cooling entry - how do i do it?

    i have just purchased a triple fan radiator and a terratec mystify H2O 2010 kit off ebay.
    i know that the cpu block included is not for s939, but i dont know if i can modify it, or whether i should simply buy another block. also, i have no experience in watercooling. i dont know what size the pipes are,and whether i need additional connectors. can someone please tell me:
    a)the size of the pipes
    b)a good but cheap waterblock
    c)whether i can use the vga waterblock on my x800gto2

    ah,found out that they are 6mm pipes. also,the triple radiator has 10mm fittings. will the pump have enough pressure to push water through the whole system? the initial kit is found here:
    http://www.custompc.co.uk/
    and type in "terratec mystify"
    well, it has a eheim pump,which can only be good.
    looking at waterblocks, i can get an alphacool nexXxos, or a dangerden maze4, are these any good as waterblocks?

    Well, you would have been better off to avoid buying a kit watercooling solution. Also, if you read that revie, it is a kit not recommended for a novice. It uses small diameter tubing, so it will work about as wel as high end air cooling as well. And since it plugs into the PSU, and you are still running that piece of junk power supply, you are really really asking for major trouble. You cannot keep adding things to that system and expect that power supply to take it. My advice to you would be to google and read everything you can on installing water cooling. Get some proper 1/4" ID (6mm) water blocks and hope for the best. You'd really be better off with a Bigwater kit to start and learn the ropes. And make double triple sure to leak test for 24 hours before you run your PC with it installed.

    ANd the Maze 4 is good and of course you can use it on an X800. You'd probably be better off looking for waterblocks with 1/4" (6mm) ID ports though since hte Maze 4 has 3/8" or larger. You really want to make the tubing the same size for everything, so you will need to swap the fittings out on the rad to make it the same size as the pump and blocks.

    thanks dude, im thinking about changing everything to 8mm or 10mm anyway. i guess i bought the kit off ebay cause it was cheapand im impulsive. anyway, the kit still hasnt came yet, although to be fair its only been a week.
    well, i think il use a second psu for all my cooling, that is, if im gonna go water at all - im thinking about selling it all again.

    well, this watercooling stuff kicks ass. GPU before = 50-80 deg now its 24-27 deg. cpu is about same as before, but my whole system is very quiet. i had to machine the gpu block before it would contact the chip,though, because of the raised metal frame around the chip.
