like an aftermarket video card cooler? you are going to have to remove your video card, take off the stock cooler, and reapply your thermal paste and put on the new cooler.

That also voids your warranty so I wouldn't suggest doing that, so if your card stops working your screwed.

yes, the tubing will fit, make sure you use clamps and leak test before you use it. you have to cut the tubing yourself.

a good vga block is DangerDen Maze 4. For the liquid, i would use distilled water with 5-10% anitfreeze.

i think the DD Maze 4 is 1/2" barbs. TT uses 3/8" tubing (which i highly despise) You either need a converter or change out the barbs or get new tubing.

If you're going to use a Danger Den block, go with 1/2" (although I think they sell them with the 3/8" barbs). 3/8" tubing doesn't cut it. Don't even bother getting converters/adapters...they'll just impede the flow of water.
