might be worth taking a look at this review

http://nexushardware.com/reviews/ind...&page_number=4

I just went water a couple of months ago and the advice I got was get the components separately and build it yourself. Wasn't nearly as difficult as I thought it would be.

what kit do you recomend? i just thought that one was nice because it was all there so you realy didnt have to find spotes to fit everything. do you know if they have a fitting for a radion 9700 pro out there yet? dose water cooling help your video card proform? is there a kit that has everything you need? all the fittings like harddrive cooler, prossesor, motherboard, videocard and stuff like that? i have 400 dollers to spend i would like to get something nice......

400-500??? WEEEE!!!!!!! Sorry, but most of us around here spend UNDER $200.
400-500 you can purchase a Vapochill, or simmilar cooler.
I would check out www.dangerden.com also.
Ill configure a kit for you when i have more time.

....... ummmmm............ i dont trust hard. Period. WIth how many screwups and problems they have, they shouldnt be allowed to review stuff. (just my personal opinion.)

 

BTW: Stay away from Koolance, Iceburg, and such products.
