Well if you want a external water cooling i suggest the Asetek WaterChill Xternal, the prices is kinda big but you get everything you need and a relly relly good water cooler. CPU, GPU and Chipset cooler everything is included. But if you want a internal water cooler you can get a cheaper one but its harder to mount inside tha case. that what i think anyway...

i would prefer an internal one. nounting internal shouldnt be a problem with a thermaltake kandalf (the black :P) and i dont really want to do chipset... pulling apart and expensive board frightens me :S

Is your system overheating now? You might consider a better air cooled system, unless you want it to be completely silent. In some cases a good air system can cool just as good as a cheap water setup, but it will make more noise.

I'm not the person to tell you about water setups though, i don't like them, too much stuff that can go wrong in my opinion.

Oh, the irony of that statement.

You're afraid to pull the heatsink off the chipset, but want to not only move to watercooling, but internal watercooling.

If changing the cooler on the chipset really frightens you, then you should most certainly not even be considering watercooling. And as a practical point, you aren't going to get squat that's worth getting for A$250.

Oh, and routing internal watercooling is much more difficult than you think. Even in a large case.

That's how I feel. Plus, running water near all those expensive parts and me being a klutz is just a recipe for disaster.
