Hello ppl

I was reading some articles and found out that i can overclock my cpu (vore 2 duo E6400) to be as fast as the E6800(got it from Toms Hardware) and i also want to overclock the Video card. So i started to look into some water cooling system. I dont really understand much about those systems so i would like to get some help with it. I was looking at these system:

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1504109&CatId=499
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2245458&CatId=499

Are these any good and do they really make alot of difference when it comes to tempatures?

My current system is:

ATI x1900 xtx
Core 2 duo E6400
2 GB DDR2
3 HD X 300GB
OCZ Xtreme PSU

the system gets really hot someetimes but nothing that bad. I know that the temp. on the GPU is avrg on 75-80 degrees.

So my questions are. Are the systems above any good and will they make much of a difference(is it worth buying it)?
Is there any other system you would suggest that can work both for the CPU and GPU?
And what else should i know about those cooling systems because im a n00b when it comes down to water cooling.

Thank you for any help

I wouldn't use any of them. From what you are describing you are going to need a little more than these beginner sets. You are going to have to customize a cooling system to do what you want to do. One of these starter kits is not going to cut cooling down CPUs, GPUs and possibly the north bridge. You will have to buy your own water blocks and upgrade or add another pump and so on. Check out Danger Den's web site for the good stuff.

I looked through that site and there is so many different kits, so im kinda confused. Do you have any suggestion that will work for my system?

and also what are the acceptable temperatures for the cpu and the gpu, meaning a temperature that wont destroy it?

The system u linked there is very expensive. I was looking at something around $150-$200. Is it possible?

not for what you described this is how much it is going to cost. You would be wasting money buying what you wanted. If you just want to water cool the CPU for now and work your way up to the real deal get a Thermaltake Big water system.

Thnx for your help.

I have purchased the ThermalTake Armor case with the Cooling system. Is it a good system and will it keep the cpu cool?


And how can i take the water cooling system apart, i mean if i want to put the Thermaltake T-Type Water Temperature Indicator how can i take the water out of the system to put that part in?
