If cheap is what you're after then you're probably better off getting yourself a good heatsink instead.

XSPC Rasa-$60
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=29841

EK 2.2-$47
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=26772

Add tubing and fittings and expect to pay around $130-$150 depending on what you go with. A t-line will work as a reservoir so that saves you a little money, they're just take longer to bleed.

Thermaltake kits are not worth it. Pumps aren't known to last long and the acrylic tops on the blocks can be prone to cracking.

You're much better off piecing your own kit together from companies that are well-known in the water cooling business like Swiftech, XSPC, EK, etc.

That's much better. You don't want Tt for liquid cooling.
