    Is it the Bigwater 735? Sure it will work, but the better question is...what are you expecting to get out of this kit? Lower temps? Overclocking? Lower sound level?

    Yup, It'll work. After some quick googling I found a guy with your same cpu and wc system who was at 3.2Ghz. I know what you mean about being paranoid about that stuff; it's always scary at first. Just do everything according to the instructions and you'll be fine. There's a lot of good info on water cooling out there to help you.

    I hope that this helps.

    Just make sure once you have everything hooked up, installed and in position you run the WCIng setup for a few hours first to leak check it. With the PC OFF and UNPLUGGED!! This way if you do have a leak it won't fry anything once you are very sure you have no leaks then you can turn everything on. IF you are new to WCing this is one of the things I recommend.

    Do the same thing if you move the PC around or install new hardware that requires you to move the tubing around. You never know, better safe than sorry.

    Other than that good. Luck. I think you could have got a quiet PC going with air but to each his own.

    You ground yourself to remove any static electricity from your body. The use of anti-static devices is the recommended method. If you make sure to touch a bare part of the chassis, it will normally discharge but not always.

    What they're referring to is ESD (electro static discharge). What happens is that static electricity build up in your body, and you can kill components by touching them. To avoid this you need to ground yourself.
    It's best to buy an anti-grounding wrist strap, but touching the case on a regular basis will also work. As for not touching the mobo, it's best not to touch any pins (especially on ram and pci cards), but you can touch the pcb without repercussions (other than fingerprints :P). One thing that you should definitely not touch is the surface of your cpu, waterblock, or heatsink. Touching the smooth face will leave fingerprints and oils that hinder thermal transfer. Oh, and don't touch the bulb of your car's headlights. Your oils will cause hot spots that will make the bulb burn out faster. Just thought I would throw that out there.

    BSL -- same with halogens and any other high temperature light.

    I picked up my static strap for like 10 bucks at my local computer store, but that was because it doesnt have the wire... you can get the wired ones for like 5.

    (Mine discharges the static through a large resistor or something, the other ones plug into the grounding '3rd wire' on your home electrical sockets.)
