Best parts for building AMD watercooled system.

Hello. I want to build a watercooling system for my CPU and I am wondering which parts to use. Please give me some advice. I want to have the best parts available on the market. Please suggest me wateblock, pump and radiator. All other items are not so important . For now I think of using Danger Den parts:
1. The radiator should be for 80mm fans because I want to mount it in my case, and more precisely on the place of the rear 2 blowholes of my case, so I have chosen DOUBLE Black Ice Micro http://www.dangerden.com/mall/Radiators/radiators.asp . What you think about it?
2. The waterblock ... hmmm they are so many blocks around. Maybe Danged Den Maze 4 with 3/8 chrome fittings
3. Hydor L30 320GPH (1200 l/h) Pump - 110/120V 1/2" OD Fittings - I will have to use adaptor fittings.


Also I want to ask - is it better to use 12.5 mm (1/2 inch) fittings or 3/8 is better? Because if I use 1/2 I will have to change the radiator because the DOUBLE Black Ice Micro is only with 9.55 mm OD (3/8 inch) fittings. So what you think about this system? Please offer me more systems and if you have links of shops where I can find these parts please post them here or send them to me with private message. Thank you in advance.

Hi!

The swiftech kits seems really nice, you may want to look into those. Also, is AquaComputer available to you? Check out aquacomputer.de - they really make some cool (!) products.

I think that the Eheims are still the pumps to go for.

Thank you Allan. I have seen the Swiftech products and they are really nice. The only thing that is bothering me is the hose connection. I'm not sure that it is secure enough.
And what about the radiator .... is it good enough?

I have seen the aquacomputer.de but I don't understand German so I can not understand the specs of the products..... they look very nice but I have no aditional information abou them. Is there any information on English? The radiators and blocks look awesome.

I don't know if there is any English info, but I'd be happy to translate something for you. Just say what item you want info on.

Thank you for your cooperation. I want some info for the following products:
Waterblock - CUPLEX EVO, Umrüstsätze für den CPU-Kühler cuplex evo™ für Rev. 1.0 - 1.1
Radiators - airplex evo 120, airplex evo 240 and the accesoires for them
Pump - aquastream Pumpe 12 V, FMJ-Abschirmgehäuse für 1048

Also if you can give me some URL's of other shops who have Swiftech, Danger Den and other watercooling products it will be great.
Thank you in advance.
