Windows 7: suggestion for liquid cooling

The 2 best pumps on the market are the MCP35X and the MCP 655 Probably more expensive than the one you picked out, but worth it. If you are dead set on custom water cooling, you will later be sorry you didn't go with one of those 2 or one of their variants. I still suggest you look for another case first. Where are you going to put a large radiator in the case you have? You have no top fans and no space for a radiator and fans above the motherboard. You only have 2 fans in the case, both 120mm, I believe. If you think you are going to cool your CPU with a 120mm radiator even with a custom loop, you will be disappointed. You would be better off financially and performance wise with a all in one unit such as AddRam suggested. Also, do your homework before you start, a lot of it. And never buy on prices, get the best you can find, or you'll be buying again and the loop will cost you twice as much. That's my advice to you learned through experience.

I'm going to fit a 240mm radiator on top of the case and a 120mm radiator on the base of it. I modded my case, now i have space for them.
When I'll finish my work, I'll post my results
