Opinions of this watercooling kit

1x Thermochill Block with Lucite Top 1/2" fittings, Mounting Kit & Y piece
1x Thermochill 80.1 with 1/2" Barbs (Space a little limited in my enlight case)
1x 120mm Sunon Fan (will check to see if they mean 80mm sunon)
1x Eheim 1048 Water Pump
1x Dual Floppy Bay-Res
1.5m Clear 1/2 inch Hose
12x Nylon Hose Clamps
1x Water Wetter
1x UV Florescent Water Dye

£119

The thermochill starter kit here

As a first watercooling kit for aggresive oc'ing, im thinking of asking for the waterblock to be upgraded to a dangerden rbx. I'll probabaly also use a spare delta 80mm 80cfm in a push pull config on the rad, hooked to a fan controller to handle the noise.

The fan will be 120mm - that's normally the width of a rad.

If you are going to set-up fans in a push-pull configuration, I believe it is best to have the fans set back from the rad by use of shrouds. This gives a buffer zone which allows better airflow through the rad. I guess you could use high cfm 80mm fans for this. Someone else must have a better idea than I have.

Here's an example of a ready made rad with shroud and a custom built one for a car engine. Funny how a lot of car modding techniques are now beigh used in computers!

Hey PornoMonkey check this Ebay listing. Its a complete Asetek WaterChill KT12-L20 kit for £150 if you Buy Now! That will give you CPU,Chipset and VGA blocks, Rad,fan, pump, tubes etc all in one kit.
If you dont fancy that then checkout Keomplett's watercooling section, its good value.

Laz.

After much research while i should be revising for a quantum physics exam, have pretty much deceided on the following.

D-tek Little river white water
Ehiem 1250
Dangerden reservoir
Black ice extreme radiator
120mm fan (110-120cfm range, will be hooked to fan controller)
All in 1/2' flavour

After the exams i beleive we'll see just how far this xp1700 can go.
