the eheim pump is indeed powerful, but its an AC pump so you need an extra power source for it. It is also much larger than the lang ddc pumps making it harder to work with, and if op is going for two loops, its not really an easy pump to work with.

@op, if its your first build the lang ddc pumps w/ a top is probably the easiest to work with.

sounds like that your computer will be a beast, the SkullTrail MOBO would have been a good option with that kind of Budget. Anyway.
Hi guys I'm looking to set up a water cooling system for my AMD6000+ I have allready purchased a Thermaltake AquaBay M3 1U Liquid/Water Tank, and am now looking for a Radiator. I wish for a good one because i will be upgrading my system to the AMD Bulldozer when it is released. i would like to use my watecooling for my new computer,
With my current system i will be cooling a AMD 6000+ CPU & Nvidia Geforce 9600 512mb, The Graphics Card is overclocked, but because i'm cheap i have a MOBO that doesn't allow me to overclock my cpu.
Are there any reviews on this radiator, http://www.koolance.com/water-cool [...] uct_id=634
I am after a radiator of this type or size.

Or does any one know of any other good radiators, also i am after a shop in Melbourne Australia that sells Water cooling gear.

Thankyou

Bernie

THANKYOU Conumdrum
The cool-z.com.au web site has helped me out. I can get most of my water cooling needs. i am thinking about getting the Swiftech MCR320 Quiet Power Radiator (3x120) Info on this product can be found here
http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/swmcqupo3xbl.html
I'm hoping that this radiator will be ok.

Another question?
are there any differences between Gold, Copper, or Pure Aluminium, water Blocks.
I'm guessing that Copper would be the best option.

Glad to help Bernie. Yes, a good rad, very popular. It's a 90% solution over the top rads. And top rads are much more AU$.

Alum reacts with copper/brass and deposits alum (to stay non-science) on the tiny copper parts, clogging and screwing up loops.

Copper, brass, silver are all just fine together.
