Watercooling Questions (n00b alert)

Ok so I'm going to give it a go, nothing too extreme just coing to start with cpu and gpu.

What I want to ask is from a total noobs perspective to watercooling who is best to go for, as I may want to expand the loop later on to include more components so I wonder who offers the best system for me to do that with or are they all pretty much of a muchness?

Please bear in mind that as yet I don't overclock (will be soon as soon as I've finshed reading and understanding all the quality posts on that on OC3D) but I do obviously want this to be considered.

Many Thanks

UC

If you just want a simple cheap system to try out H20, than the CM Aquagate is the easiest. (and $50)

If you want something better and upgradeable I have used the Swiftech stuff and like it.

This DangerDen looks pretty good too(more powerful pump too)

Swiftech make great starter kits with good pricetags, that would be the route I would definately look in to.

Very good purchase. Best part about the Swifty kits is that it gives you the ability to upgrade your waterblocks and such down the road. The low-end watercooling kits make u stay with their POS blocks.
