when i said diy i meant make it youself, and i mean everything down to the waterblocks.  Hose can be had from anywhere from homedepot to aquarium stores (good place to find a pump maybe also??) junkyard automotive radiator or oil cooler, and you can contact you local metal supplier for solid copper and sheets.  I'm in the process now of making my homebrew watercooling system, good luck with yours whatever route you take.

I bought all of my parts, but most can be homemade.  I would suggest buying a professionally made block though, that's the LAST thing you want to spring a leak, or be restricting the waterflow.  A good aquarium pump and tubing might set you back $20, the heater-core you should be able to hunt up at an auto salvage yard for a couple bucks.
Most important is patience, take you time making sure all the components are clean, and test the rig for a couple days outside of the case for leaks before installing.
Mine took forever to finish, but I'm lazy.
