Of course this is somewhat reduced if you are going to hose the rig with flexible tubing. But the EK blocks and fittings are so sweet that with rigid acrylic tubing around the blocks and most if not all the rad's seems like the best long term and as far as looks it's far and away better.
I'm going to order online, and ship. I looked at NewEgg's supply of WaterCooling, and it wasn't impressive at all.

Can you suggest a good shop, I was told XSPC was good.

I'm going to double post, and take the heat for it, but I do have some questions.


Whats the major difference between;

Copper/Chrome/Steel (Looks like it) Water Blocks for the CPU?

Which gives the desired results?

If I can successfully do it, I'll see about making a video of it, and posting my problems, and how I overcame them. What I did, and the works.


The biggest problem I'm having now, is finding the right GPU Blocks. I'm wondering if a block works for a 580GTX, will it work for a 560GTX? That type of thing. Proper fluid to use, and the things like that. It really sucks that my school is retarded, and won't let me view these types of things, especially when I'm a Cisco Student.

They have a 100$ "Stolen/Reimbursment" if broken rule. My Alienware stays at home. It shall not ever come here, simply because half the kids here, would screw with it. Very little respect for others things.

My Christmas present will be a second, but cheap laptop. Nothing I can game on, as well as an increased data plan for my phone (arrives in 30 days )

GTX 560 Waterblock

Heatkiller GPU-X GTX 560 -Hole Edition- nVidia GTX 560 Reference Design Full Coverage Water Block (15508) - FrozenCPU.com

Use Distilled Water and a silver kill coil. You don't need anything else. Most dyes have a tendency to clog pores up after time, distilled water won't and is the best conductor of heat. If you want to add color to the case, buy colored tubing. If you have to use dyes, use Mayhems, it's the best. Just be sure which you buy. Some are just for show and not recommended for long term use.

This has probably some of the best information, I've ever received here on SF. Including EF as well. I will check this out immediately, thank you essenbe.

Sorry for the late reply, I had KP & took a weekend off to study for a test on Thursday.
