Few questions

Will a heater core radiator mount onto a case in a 120mm fan opening?

What do you guys think of the Vantec stingray STG-100 kit?

What are some good pumps?

Where can I get a clear round resavoir as shown in this pic:

Without seeing the construction of the inside of those blocks, and needing a better look at the kit, it's hard to pass judgement on the vantec water-cooler. I heard wind of this product a while ago...but i don't see alot of press or retail sightings of this kit.

That being said, it's either way too new, or it's so bad it's been passed over.

I could give you a few links to tube-shaped resevoirs...they can be had for fairly cheap from most major water-cooling retailers.

In regards to pumps, it really depends on what the entire kit consists of, as not every pump is suited for every job. That being said, the MCP655 is one of the most verstile pumps out there, allowing for 8v-24v power supply to it to regulate speed and flow, as well as a variable resistor(speed control) on the back of the unit for even finer tuning.

But it isn't good for every block...

Thanks for the quick reply, Heres my situation:

Right now I have a sck754 system:
Sempron 2800+ 256KB L2 1.6ghz @ 2496mhz
http://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c2...9/untitled.jpg
2GB GeIl ram @ 2-3-3-5
2x 160GB SATA HD
Sony 16x DVD RW
Aspire 520W PS

My temps now are fine, and my system isnt loud, but I am planning on upgrading to a new platform, and being an avid overclocker I would like to get my feet wet with water cooling(Not literally!) before I get my new hardware.

I understand the concepts of water cooling perfectly, but I dont know where to buy it, what to buy, what brands are good and so on so on...

I was looking at the vantec kit mainly because it has the GPU, NB, and CPU blocks included, and the blocks aretn all that bad, not the vest either though.

I already know I will need to use some anticorrosion additives with them. So basicly Im wondering if I should try to pick out parts my self and build my own kit, or just go with the vantec one, or the swiftech H20-120 kit.

Any advice/suggestions/warnings are welcome.

personal pick would be a mcp655, TDX or storm cpu block's, matched with the aquaxtreme MP-1 or the maze4 acetal. choice of rad and res, although copper-based rad's will be best for corrosion's sake.
