Ok my gpu has been getting very hot lately even idleing and mainly while playing any sort of game that has a medium to heavy load. So I was gonna try out water cooling to see if that will help cool it down.

So I was wondering if you had any suggestions on which cooling kit to go with from $100-$350 or so. I was thinking about the EXOS-2 [http://www.xoxide.co...-2-silver.html] from koolance and a block for my cpu and video card. [video card block: http://www.xoxide.co...06--cooler.html] [cpu: http://www.xoxide.co...v10-cooler.html]

Would that do it :tazz: or do you guys suggest somthing else. And what else would I need ? accessories?

The asetek water cooling kits get the best reviews as well as the swiftech kits, exos ones have a reputation for being noisy.

If you run fans at full speed yes, its loud but noise is not a factor for me. And im a beginner with watercooling so i need something simple

Well you wont find that with an exos kit, i have a recent lab test of the 10 most popular water cooling systems in front of me. And the easiest to install kit(The exos 1 and 2 kits were both rated as not bad too install but thats stll harder than easy) was the swiftech h20-120-fk rated easy for installation and the "best money can buy for athlon 64" also has a universal fan mounting so any fan mount size will fit it, quiter with more performance and easier to install and more imporantly cheaper you would be off your nut to get an exos over that. The exos didnt even get a mention in the conclusions at the end of the report

The lab test is online http://www.custompc.co.uk/ go to product reviews> labs >water cooling kits
