Yeah, worst case scenario, if it doesn't have any provisions for mounting like that (externally on a case with 80mm ports), you can use simple zip ties through the fins of the radiator and the case fan mounts to hold it in place.

I just drilled holes in my case and cut out the metal grill to make it fit.

It's a bit of a shoddy job but it's going to serve it's purpose.

Yeah, I'm not beyond cutting into my case, but we're trying to keep somebody away from power tools...

if you're going to dump cash into a water cooler, get a DangerDen, Asetek, or PolarFlo. Try to get 1/2" ID fittings, at least 3/8". personally, i would avoid that Tt system, as the pump looks kinda weak.

Yeah, I've got the Asetek 1/2" OD fitting kit and a DD NV 6800 block. I might change all the fittings to 1/2" ID in a few months. I can't fit my NB block though cause it's right behind the AGP port and because the 6800 is such a big card it won't fit.

How important is the North Bridge now in terms of heat? Does it get very hot when OCing?

It can get pretty toasty. If you can get a decent HSF on it though that would help a lot.

I've got a Gigabyte board, is the stock HSF on it any good?

It's just there's not really much room to play with unfortunately.

The pump is fine and leaves enuff to cool GFX card. Are you speaking from facts or thin air? You used the TT system?

Eh, it's an ok HSF, but if you do any serious overclocking, you may want to look into something better.

Go for the Danger Den or Asetek!

I'd be more inclined to go for the Danger Den water cooling. The DD parts are 1/2" ID (Inner Diameter) which means you get better flow. The Asetek are 1/2" OD (Outer Diameter) which means they're really only 3/8" or there abouts which also means less water flow.

Ok, say you get the Tt one... Then when you receive it you find out the tubing is too small or the pump is not powerfull enough for the GPU block. You've then wasted $XXX!

Atleast if you buy DD or Asetek you know you can expand without any problems!

Well, because you live in the US I'd recommend you'd go for the Danger Den parts! They'll probably be a lot cheaper plus they've got better water flow cause the fittings are wider.

I've got two 12cm Black Ice Pro radiators, Asetek Antartica CPU block, DD NV 6800 GFX block, DD 5 1/4" Bay reservoir, Hydor L30 Pump and a Asetek NB block though it won't fit cause the 6800 is too big. So I'll have to some modifying.
