I'm not exactly an expert at watercooling but i do know a few things... thats pretty good :)

I would buy it if I had the money, and if you do buy it, hook everything up OUTSIDE the computer they way your fonna want it, and let it run for 48 or more hours, to check for leeks.

Erm, its OK.

Personally a dangerden copper maze2 water block would be better.  I also don't like the water pump they use.  Its a Rio 120(180?), Rios are prone to failure, and aren't very good pumps, they have a low head(how high it can pump water).  You could build your own water cooling setup for about the same cost as that kit ( ok, a little more) that would be 2 times as good.

The other issue I have with this kit is that it uses an aluminium radiator and resevoir, and it has a copper water block.  when you put those in a electrolitc fluid (read water) they make a very good battery about 1 volt.  this will cause the aluminuim to corrode.

voltage + cpu = fried well maybee if it somehow touched a vital part of you computer but other than that the copper (I believe) will begin to degrade and your aluminum radiator might get some coper deposits on it, also to clarify on the water its only electrically conductive if it has other stuff in it, ie chlorine, metals, for pure H20 isnt electrically conductive

erm any of the dangerden kits are pretty good, and they have a nice water pump to, I think they are closed loop system instead of an open loop (resevoir).

http://www.dangerden.com/mall/kits_pumps.asp

They are kinda pricy though, if its to much money the kit that you were looking at would work, but I don't really like it...  especaily the mounting mechanism, that screw in the middle has broken more cores than any other system devised!

And to clarify distiled water can still be conductive, since its the ions in the water that cause it to be conductive.

if you need deionized and distilled water you can still do that you get distilled water and run it through a filter
