    Depends on the system you are installing. Most kits just come with CPU and chipset coolers.

    Like anythign, it depends on how much you want to pay. Top of the line systems, you get separate parts that all connect to a radiator and a pump. I installed the Swiftech H20-120 and I used only the graphics card and CPU blocks, but you can get chipset coolers as well. Here is where I got it:

    Here is a review of 16 systems:

    I've never seen a water cooled memory block--don't know why you'd need that--heat sinks would probably be fine.

    all i really need is to build a fairly decent water cooling sysytem to overclock! My cpu and mobo have currently been running at around 48C which should be cooler. I have 5 fans in my pc and yet it still dont help any. I have decided to turn to liquid cooling. I dont care if its mix n match or straight up a complete cpu/vga system...i just need help deciding how to do this so i can get cooler temps and better running results. I really dont wanna spend more then $250 because im a bit poor right now...if you can work in that price range let me know of a setup or at least what i need to make a cooling system. Also please answer questions above in my other posts if you can! Thanks!!!
