    I was wondering if anyone has links to where i can get the following items as cheaply as possible :)

    a pump
    a water block
    gpu block
    tubing..

    I picked the rad up for £10 out of a mini :D not sure if its any good comments ...

    All help is appreciated.

    Also anyone selling second hand water cooling equipment i'd be interested.

    Catch me on msn on rand0m@btinternet.com if you want to chat about it :D

    I was told previously that you could use the pumps for windscreen wiper fluid... Was never able to tell if that was bs or not...

    For tubing, how 'bouts local hardware store?

    How quickly do you need everything?

    Welcome to the forums Tommy :) Well i would like to contribute to the "Help Tommy Get His Watercooling Project Done" fund..I have 2 maze2's for sale, send me an email if your interested :)

    As far as pumps are concerned...Via Aqua's or Rio's are the cheapest around. Reliability is questionable, but i can't speak from experience. Good luck!

    Hi Tommy,

    The rad will work but you could do well better. Go for a heatercore out of a vauxhall, cheep will fit in your system and work very very well. Also cheep, mine was mint, bronze and cost £10.

    www.aquatics-online.co.uk will be a good place for your pump as will an aquatics shop for your hosing. If you are looking for 1/2" get moomin to get in contact with me, got loads.
