They do make ultra violet die for water that will "glow" in a blacklight. From what I gather you are looking for UV sensitive tubing... If you find any, let me know. Below is a link to Cases Etc. go to their water cooling accessories. Maybe this will be an good alternative for your glow in the dark tubing.

Though I am still looking if anyone has a few links that they could provide, or any information, or gripes about water cooling systems in general please post, I want to know as much as I can before I dive head first into the overclocking world.

I was also working on a water cooling project until I found out I'm so low on cash. www.wahoocomputers.com was going to do it for me. They are really good at case mods. Here's what I would do. For the waterblock, nothing beats www.dangerden.com's Maze 2 waterblock. But a shim and good thermal compound (Arctic Silver II) The CPU should be freezing. =) www.dangerden.com also has some nice video card waterblocks as well. For a good example of what a neat and hot looking (or cool looking, if that's what you prefer) go to www.xdream-machines.com and look at their water cooling technique posted on the site. Also, the tubes can come out of your Case's ceiling and back in to the back. Believe me when I tell you, you will want a wide and spacious case for water cooling. I suggest the Yeong Yang cube style cases because both wahoocomputers.com and xdreammachines.com uses it. Also, about the sediments collecting in the water pipes, that only happens using crappy water. Use distilled purified water. And there is special coloring that doesn't dirty the tubes if you want the color the water. Wahoo was going to do it for me. In fact, since I had the tube coming out from the top and in from the back, they were trying to look for glow-in-the-dark color or neon color. I'm not sure if such a thing exists however. If you don't want to get such a good water cooler, just go for a Senfu water cooling kit. It gets the job done, the temp. is MUCH lower than the best of fan/heatsink, but it looks like sh... Custom water cooling is much better. But don't forget about fans. If using the Yeong Yang case, I suggest a fan on radiator, 2 fans on the stock intake, and 2 fans on the stock exhaust. You might want a big power supply as well. I suggest minimum 450 watts from a good PSU company such as Fortron, Enermax, and PC Power and Cooling. That's it, I'm done, e-mail me or IM me on AOL for replies too if you can. I want to hear what you will get, just for curiosity.
