What do you guys think for a water-cooling setup under 100$

I have that actually. It's not bad for the price, but don't use the VGA block.

I really only overclocked on processor with it, which was a pentium d 915. I got it to around 3.9 I believe.. I think it ran like 55C under load.

One problem I had with it actually.. Just recently the pump went out, after about a year or so of use. Good news is it has a REALLY loud alarm when the pump stops, so you'll know something is up.

On my current rig I use this thermaltake kit:

Although I don't use the 1x120MM as it uses smaller fittings and reduces flow. On a Core 2 Duo @ 3.8GHz, I run about 40C load with the fans on the lowest speed I can put them without them turning off (I have them on a fan controller).
