    I want to use a Coolermaster Aquagate to cool my CPU and GPU, however the Aquagate is only supplied with a CPU block and 2 tubes. Now ive heard that the aquagate uses special tubing, ive searched for it but i cant find. As for GPU ill b using Colermaster again. Can anyone tell me wether it is special or just bog-standard?
    [Edit/] Also , need an online store selling Va-AQUA Water Block for ATI i cant find it on Coolermaster officail resellers or google

    aqaugate system or an aquagate mini?

    for the aquagate system price you good do a far more effective kit.
    The aquagates minis are bloody amazing for the size/price but wont manage gpu too.

    im consider 2 aquagate mini kits, one for gpu one for cpu.

    To be honest, i think you'd be better off going for top end air cooling over the aquagate - read up some comparative reviews of the aquagate and you'll find out thats its not all that great.

    If you want to go for a budget watercooling system, alphacool make some really cheap start up kits which can easily be expanded. Swiftech also make good performance kits, but I dont thinkthe cheapest one available would be any less than £100 or so.

    Before you take the plunge into watercooling, really think about wether top end air cooling doesnt satisfy your needs.

    I used an Aquagate last year on the Sound + Vision project and must admit although not the hottest hardware did pretty well in terms of temps considering i hooked a CPU, GPU and HD block but for some reason it needed topping up with liquid every other day and to this day haven't got a clue where the missing liquid was going! (fitting can be seen near the bottom of the page) i can still hear that annoying alarm it gave off when it got low on water :eeek:

    Needless to say it wasn't in my system very long but it was quite an experience to say the least when it was :)

    ok, that aquagate sys is not good, but how about thermaltake bigwater se. its difficult to search a alphacool watercooling sys at my place. the coolermaster and thermaltake is popular here.
