Default Water cooling.

I've decided to get water cooling on my system. I'v ebeen looking around and only found good ones by danger den and the big water one by thermaltake, what can a liquid cooling system cool? and what is a good liquid cooling system
-i know it can cool the gpu if u have a gpu block
-i know it can cool the cpu
chipset?
hdd?
ram?
????
what can these cool? and what are the partsdo i need.
So i am going over to a friends house to get a run through on his system.
Don't want to spend more than .......500.

watercooling systems can cool the cpu, gpu, chipset and the hard drive i think not so sure about the hard drive but i kinda remember seeing something like that somewhere and it cant cool the ram, the only parts u need is a kit then just get individual blocks after that like a gpu block and a chipset block, i wouldnt bother cooling the hard drive cause it doesnt need it and u might need some extra hoses but thats it

any particular brands that are good for this, and which coolant seems to work the best i've been looking at some uv non-conductive stuff.

can you have a gpu fan combine with a water block, or will that not work?

i would actually find that kinda pointless thought to have watercooling and a fan on top being it wouldnt do anything. the only way water can be cooled is if it goes trhough the radiator which seperates the water into smaller amounts then cools it so its faster. if u had a fan on top it wouldnt really do much since its in such large amount of heat.

i have that watercooling kit on my regular pc. its ok but i dont think it does that great job of cooling. i mean it might lower temps but i think its equivalent to a good air cooling system.

from what i have been told watercooling really will not give you any benefits over aircooling unless you are overclocking i bought an evercool system and then never installed it. you can get a HDD block to cool the HDD it will then mount into one of your cd drive bays. the only "real" benifit i could see from a liquid system was the fact that it was suppose to be quieter, however when you take into account that the radiators use fans i think it would be just as noisy as a good air cooled system, however they shure do look great in a case with a side window and in the clear acrylic cases, but since the acrylic case do seem to generate static electricity and scratch very easily i would not use one of them.

hahaha! i love how you said you learned the do's and don'ts, yet you ordered a TT big water se. Have fun dealing with corrosion in your loop. But you probably installed it already so can't do anything there since you can't return it. Best bet would be to sell it and buy yourself a nice custom setup.
