I haven't water cooled in quite a while and even when I did it was because I got a cheap all in one system free which eventually leaked. Anyway, I'm looking to build an entire setup based on this:
I'm also looking at a dual 120mm black ice radiator.
That is unless someone can direct me to a better 6800 block. I probably won't be OC'ing the proc to incredible levels so I'm considering pelt cooling or anything like that but I'm looking for suggestions on a good waterblock for a neo2 plat with 1/2" barbs. Does a three prong cpu block really help? I saw that danger den has a solid silver gpu block but I care much more about video than cpu so I don't need to spend $130 on a cpu block.
Unfortunately my video card physically covers my chipset fan so I don't know if I can get a waterblock on there.
I want to put my pump, radiator and reservoir in another room about 7' or 8' away from my PC. How powerful of a pump do I need to do so? It will also have to push the water up 3 vertical feet (the 3 feet included in the 7 to 8 feet)
