the TDX by DangerDen supports 1/2" tubing and will get you lower temps then the Asetek block.

Some other guy on these forums (Jimi) recommended the Danger DEN RBX waterblocks to me.

Here they are.' ">http://www.dangerden.com/mall/...%20Hold%20Down%20Block

I'll be buying one. they look good. Got a DD watercooling kit on its way to me in the post, with 1/2 inch tubes, so I'm happy.

What you've got to remember is that the Asetek parts are OD (Outer Diametre) and DD are ID (Inner Diametre). OD is smaller than ID because the OD parts are measured from the outside of the fittings and ID is measured from the inside.

I would buy the DD water blocks and reservoir and get a Hydor L30 pump with 1/2" fittings as these are supplied with both ID and OD 1/2" fittings.

Plus, with DD, there's less chance of leakage because of the fittings they use.

Get whatever tube you like. Some are softer so you can flex them better.

Have you got a Jigsaw?

You might be able to cut a rectangle slightly smaller than the radiator itself in the top of your case. I would go for the dual radiator personally. You could always add another single raditator later on or buy one at the same time.

Drool over the triple 120mm radiator.

Would you even need a fan if you mounted that at the top of a case?

I actualy have a Ehim 1420 pump, a dual 80mm black ice, and a single 120mm black ice that I still have yet to utilize.

If you buy all DD parts that are 1/2" you won't have to worry about all that. I'd go for the High flow RBX CPU block and for your GFX card, get the DD NV 68. My temps for my GFX card are 44c idle and 54c under load and I only applied the AS5 yesterday so hopefully my temps will be even lower once that sets.
My CPU temps are 30c idle and 37c under load but I'm going to reapply the AS5 on my CPU.

The only downside to having the NV 68 is that you probably won't be able to fit a NB water block, but the temperature that reaches probably wouldn't warrant a extra cooling on the NB.
But I recommend you get the Hydor L30 pump, that can move 1200L/h and it's resonably priced.

Oh, I've got a 6800GT...

well my rad is 1/2 id which means 1/2 inner diamatter right, so i would need 1/2 id tubing?

i dont think im going to get the gfx block cause at idle my bfg 6800oc is 48c and at load is about 55c

oh wait i figured out the tubing, they give you a id and a od size i was getting confused on the both of the sizes
