Alright, i'm new to water cooling and i'm wondering what you would all think would be the best for my system. I know that this may be something that you don't want to share but go for it. Spend as much or as little as you wish, but realise that my budget is 300 USD.

I've got an ATX case with an MSI Neo3 P4 motherboard.
4 GB of RAM 4x1GB
P4 3.2 GHz 800 MHz FSB
3x 320 GB WD ATA 133 HDD
4x Lite-On DVD+/- R/RW/DL Burners
Volari V3 128MB GFX card
and my case is a Sunbeam Acrylic blue led case. it's nice and pretty so keep this aesthetically pleasing please. Shrouds are wonderful.

Knock your socks off. Any other questions feel free to post them in the thread.

Thanks
jschultz

Here. We. Go.

First off, you need to know how it all works.
It all starts in the Reservoir, then goes through a tube into the Pump. The pump is usually 12v, only one or 2 molex. The pump will distribute it into different waterblocks, then to the radiator to cool the water down. Back to the reservoir.

Reservoir - http://xoxide.com/swiftech-mcres-525-bay-reservoir.html
CPU Block - http://xoxide.com/swiftech-storm-water-block.html
If you would like a RAM Cooler - http://xoxide.com/koolance-ram-30-v06.html
VGA Cooler - Not necessary with that card
Radiator - http://xoxide.com/swiftech-mcr80-qp-k.html
Pump - http://xoxide.com/swiftech-mcp350-pump.html

You may want to get some clamps for the RAM Cooler if you do get it. I did not add up the cost, sorry. You will also need tubing. I would recommend going to your local plastic store. It is much cheaper there. If not, I would get cool sleeves - http://xoxide.com/swiftech-coolsleeves-500-blue.html

I would just replace the PSU with a PC P&C 510 Express. I also prefer eVGA to MSI

i like MSI better than eVGA because MSI has been around longer and they have really really good service

i cant swollow the PC P&C prices at the moment

case ive decided on(for now) is a THERMALTAKE SOPRANO with a whole bunch of red LEDs to make it glow like HELL :flame:

optical drives are gonna be made by asus one being their DVD RAM burner, another being a CDR/W, DVD ROM reader combo drive, and the other a DVD,CDR/W reader(might use another brand)

Ahh, my friend has the Soprano. Pretty nice case. I would rather get a Shuttle SN26P to anything right now.

um shuttles are quite a bit to small for my tastes i use way more drives than a shuttle will allow. plus im paranoid about heat.

so back on topic what would be the suggestion for my setup. please keep it under $250 US if posable
