build from scratch. What case do you have? Are you comfortable modding it?

A kit would be the easiest way to get into water cooling. It will come with everything you'll need with complete installation instructions. There is a nice selection of Swiftech and Thermaltake water cooling kits here, CrazyPC.com.

thermaltake is a big no on when watercooling. Check here: http://www.petrastechshop.com/wacoki.html
Those are basically "kits" but they use custom parts. Petra's Tech just sells them as a kit. Those are the best "kits" that i've seen on the market so far. As long as you leak test, you should be fine.

I can back ownage up on Thermaltake's kits, I had one, not worth the money. Looked cool with UV tubes though. I've heard good stuff about Petra's.

*slaps rudster's head around for recommending Thermaltake* No! Thermaltake is NOT the way to go.
