Question. How big (physically) do you want this project to be? Making your own radiator/heat exchanger could be more hassle than its worth. If you are thinking big (physically) then look into copper-brass car heatercores. You can get them very cheap and they perform really well.

If your system is going to be large then you will need a hefty pump to keep flow rates up and as most CPU and AGP blocks are made to take 1/2" barbs (1/2" piping) you should keep the length of pipe as short as possible.

As for waterblocks....I've read the new Swiftech's are great performers, so consider them.

Good luck.
