First of all, do you know enough about watercooling? Or at least the basics?

You might want to read that : http://www.vr-zone.com/index.cgi?i=37

Then, a do-it-yourself system will probably be much better than any commercial one. Just pick the parts you feel that cover you. Feel free to ask any questions if you feel like doing so, but I think that article will cover you (if your actually read it).

If you want to take the guess work out there are a number of good kits on the go. Allan did a review on one here.

Dangerden do a few too.

There's another guide to the basics here

It's really not that difficult though. The important thing is to take your time. Be patient, practice fitting the components before you're ready to build, leaktest before you power up.

Have fun
