Default Water Cooling

What is a cheap water cooling system that performs relatively well and is easy to set up? I would need it for an AMD socket 754 and an AM2 (im upgrading soon). It would be nice for it to support a video card too (universal if possible since im upgrading soon). I would like to spend under $150 (IM BROKE) and I would like some change left over too. If this is not possible I will just stick to using a zalman cpu cooler (for when i upgrade, im using stock right now which is fine for this cpu). Thanks ahead of time.

I'm no watercooling expert but I don't think your going to get a good water cooling for the price your looking to spend. You probally won't see any difference between that and a high end HSF. Which would only cost you $60-70 max.

They say the all in one coolbit thermo electric cooler does a pretty good job as a kit but its more than your willing to spend. Plus i'm not sure if it is made for that socket type.

jw y water cooling
i find it a pain in the ass for the preformance its worth
when your can just get an equally as good air system
the zalman 7900 will get that core 2 duo up at past 3.4ghz
and an antec case will keep your components cool with great air flow
(not to say there arnt other types of cases and fans that work just as good or better)

Don't go with water unless you are looking to put serious money into it. Cheap + water don't go very well. I'm currently waiting for a Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme heatsink to be shipped, it should be here Monday.

Yeah, you need to spend AT LEAST $250 if you want water cooling. Anything under that and you're getting a crappy setup.

This thing has been awesome for me so far, the picture is old it doesn't come with the drive bay reservoir/pump they are seperate it come s with the swiftech micro res. No leak yet, big tubing, nice pump and it comes with the swiftech tube wrap that prevents kinking. I've been using it for a few months now.Swiftech is probably in the top 2-3 for watercooling kits.

Swiftech makes good stuff. You might want to check out www.petrastechshop.com, they have some good stuff for watercooling.

For the AMD 6000+ 3.0ghz X2 (that is being ordered soon)

So far I can't get a good system for my pricerange and it doesnt work the best as I'm told.

For the AMD 6000+ 3.0ghz X2 (that is being ordered soon)
I think I might stick to:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118004

Or for overclocking (I don't know why I would need to overclock a 3ghz either):
http://www.xoxide.com/ultra-chilltech-cpu-cooler.html

I think I'm gonna get the chilltec for better performance....and it looks cooler.
