To my way of thinking the pump isn't an area where you want to go cheap, doesn't mean you have to break the bank but read reviews and get a solid performer for this is the key, quiet with excellent reliability along with the highest flow rate you can afford.

I agree when you want Custom the first thing you have to Realize it is more Expensive then just buying a made cooler

Going cheap because the money sounds right is not always the best choice
I would check out specs on everything and how much temps are lowered with each one and how it performs under stress and heat

Last thing you want is a cheap pump or Resviour to bust and cause more damage then you are willing to pay for

To me custom pumps are cool but the Backlash of it not being done right is a big turn around
You should be ready to spend atleast $ 200.250 on a quality custom made water system

Looking at the spec's of your rig, honestly you're not cooling anything powerful. I would get a H80 and call it a day. Then start to dream and save for a new mobo, chip and GPU and then sort out the cooling then.

You guys both have a good point. If the pump isn't strong enough than the whole system is crap.

I'm not looking at the liquid cooling for this rig. I'm planning on building a better one with higher specs. I also like the custom liquid cooking setups because of how the look.

Understand and they are way cool (pun entended) to look at as well as functional. Consider a two prong approach with stage one taking care of the CPU via a 240mm double thick or a 360 rad then phase two you can add another 120 dbl rad and add GPU cooling.

That's what I was planning on doing because of the price. I'm going to recycle some of the parts from my current build into my new build to save some cash (i.e. hard drive, and gpu). Will upgrade the gpu once I have more cash because the one I have now works good for what I'm doing.

Perfect and understand that even the best lay'd plans will need to be altered once begun so give yourself some extra monies to run out to a local store for parts needed in the last minute to finish. Then do the paperclip power supply trick and run the system in for several hours if not longer to test and stress all fittings for leaks.

I know what you mean. If it has to do with plumbing, basically what liquid cooling is, just a little simpler, its never as easy as you would have hoped. I saw the paperclip trick the other day when I was looking at instructional videos. I never knew about it. Good thing to know for different scenarios!
