    Whoa better tell my friend then....but why would it explode Jameson? Is it because of too much power bieng sucked in or some thing to do with the combination of water and air.

    Or are you just pulling my leg?

    That's not 100% true (oh, it's true, but not for cheap water cooling).

    Right now to do better than the top air coolers (like the Tuniq or TR U120X, assuming you can get a working TR U120X given TR's QC issues), you need a pretty high end water cooler that incorporates a dual 120mm radiator, fairly high CFM fans, a fairly high pressure pump, and a good CPU block. Expect that a rig w/ those components, even if you cut corners elsewhere, is going to run upwards of $270. Anything less than that and you might as well just get a high end air cooler.

    Here are a few personal picks when I considered water cooling:

    Swiftech MCP655 (high flow, medium pressure, integrated 1/2" barbs)
    Swiftech MCP355 (medium flow, high pressure, integrated 3/8" barbs)
    Laing DDC w/ Petra's Tech DDCT-01S custom top (high flow & high pressure w/ G1/4 fittings)

    D-TEK Fuzion CPU block (best block out right now for most applications unless something has hit the market in the last month that beats it)

    Swiftech MCR-220 QP Dual 120mm Radiator (no, this isn't the best dual radiator out there, but it's actually pretty good and very reasonably priced - edit: consider a '76 Chevy Caprice heater core as a cheap DIY alternative - you'll have to attach your own barbs to it and build your own fan shrowd, plus it will never look as professional as the real deal, but it is supposed to perform really well)

    Any 1/2" clear PVC tubing (don't spend $2/ft on tubing - go to your local hardware store or buy from http://www.mcmaster.com - they also have reasonably priced hose clamps and just about any other hardware you can imagine, though some things you can't buy in unit qty)

    For a reservoir do whatever is in your budget. Be wary of cheap all acrylic models though because of the possibility of cracking them more easily. Acrylic cylinders are ok if the top and bottom caps are made of something more durable.

    Fans are a personal preference, but I like Antec, Delta, Panaflo, and Yate Loon.

    If you want to spruce it up a bit and have the budget, consider getting quick disconnect hose couplers to connect any components that are outside of your case.
