Pump. waterblock, reservoir is the realistic minimum but you will be wanting to add a radiator to that since you have a fairly hot chip.

waterblocks are hard to come by over here. But The Overclocking Store stock some Maxxxpert blocks and Tekheads stock most of the Dangerden range. Blocks are about £35 by the looks of things

Both stock readiators and pumps and reservoirs are simple to make out of plastic tubs or whatever but you could go with a closed loop system (no reservoir at all!) Buying a radiator isnt the cheapest way of doing things though. Heatercores from cars are the cheapest way and VERY effective. Im writing a little article for Spodesabode on what to look for at your local car breakers. Rads range from £30 to £70 usually, but heatercores much less, I have a pair for £10 each.

I use an Eheim pump 'inline' so as to not add any extra heat to the system.
I also use a heater core from a '93 Chevy pickup truck that was free, and it's mounted in an external separate box (NOT a good LAN setup), and my load temps are in the mid'30's always.

Water: the QUIET cooling solution !!!

A Chieftec with a bunch of PCB's, Drives, Cables, and Water
