I went with the 'quiet' approach since I don't overclock anymore.

hey

can i add something, try and stick with same material of cpu blocks and raditors, example dont do an aluminum cpu block then a copper graphics card cooler, this will cause build or corroison up because of the to different materials mixing together, if you have to add a product called water wetter it will slow this process down also use algee inhibortors, and make sure there are no bubbles in blocks, thats why i'd advise see through water blocks

THe intake plenum on my mustang gets really hot and it severely impacts performance over time. Many people put bags on ice on them between runs at the track but I wanted a more concrete solution. I was thinking of taking tubing and securely fastening it around it and running a cooling unit there or finding another way to apply cooling tubing to it. Is there a tubing meant to cover wider areas like an intake manifold upper? Right now its just an idea but I wanted to see if there was a good way to go about this from people in the know.

200 degrees would annihilate plastic tubing. You might be able to get away with metal, but you've got to consider how much heat you can realistically move away with a water-cooling system. Not to mention... heat transfer without a good transfer surface will kinda suck.

I know kits in general are bad but does this one look any good?

http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/produc...6/cl-w0076.asp

Seems like it has quite a good radiator, 3/8inch tubing is nice, and I am not sure if the pump or waterblock are good?

Also how do you add a gpu waterblock to this setup?

Not necessarily. It simply depends on the type of plastic you use.

Vinyl, or PP? Unlikely.

Worst of the worst.

Go with individual Danger Den components.

you are wrong. pressure is the most important factor of a watercooled setup, more important that water flow. if people wanted high flow, then they would get a water block that has nothing but a flat surface. what is most important is pressure/head in proportion to surface area in a water block.
