im getting a liquid cooler for my CPU but i want to make sure that it'll do fine. i read a lot about it and everythng so far, says its really good for the AMD 2600. anyway here it is: http://www.edazz.com/awarlicosy.html
and the VGA Cooler im getting for my 5900XT (overclocked) is a thermaltake: http://www.computerbrain.com/applicatio ... OCK&sc=FRG

But i dont understand how the VGA WCer will work? what do i hook it up to to monitor the flow, temp, etc?

The VGA block you mention is just that, a block and 2 tubes. What you would do is use it instead of the one that comes with the Kingwin kit.

I don't know if the kingwin kit displays flow, but if it does, I would image it will display it for both the CPU and VGA blocks.

I have to disagree. I looked up the kingwin and for a standard water cooler it is very nice. It has two radiators and its built for silence and not super-cooling. It's nice size and good price makes it a viable option for someone using a secondary CPU cooler, like phasechange or TED. Hook the watercooler to only the GPU's and the memory.

You also can't beat that price.

So what your saying is that the CPU WCer is not just a CPU cooler it can cool your Grx Crad too? and the VGA block that comes with the Kingwin kit Sux big balls? :lol:

I don't know how good the kingwin vga cooler is, just that the page you linked to listed both a CPU block and a VGA block. It may be that it will cool both, or it may be that it is for EITHER the CPU OR the VGA, I don't know. They probably specify on that page, which you can read.

As for replacing it with the TT VGA cooler, I figured you knew what you were doing.

With the kingwin kit you are able to connect multiple waterblocks to the system to cool whatever is needed.
However, the more you connect to the watercooler, the less cooling you will see.

Not really, a 256mb 6800U would kick the ass off a 128mb version.

Not too bad. But with dual video cards and north/south bridges, and hard drives and memory all plugged into it it could be degridated quite a bit.
