Default Athlon64 Waterblock Recomendation

It's been a while since I've had to shop for watercooling parts and I've pretty much just fallen out of the loop. I'm upgrading my computer (read: getting a new everything) and now I need to change up my water cooling. I'll be cooling an Athlon 64 4000+, maybe slightly overclocked. My main goal is for it to be silent. I'll be using a Hydor L30, BIX, and 5.25" bayres. The tubing is all 1/2"ID, except for the bayres which, because some people don't know how to measure, is 1/2" OD. So what would best fit my needs? Also, I don't really want to spend too much. I know, it's asking for a lot.

for a cheap option, the Swiftech 6002 series is right around $42, a TDX would cost just over $50 and for quite possibly the best solution out right now, the Swiftech Storm is about $76. i've see the TDX used for as low as $25.

Gotta agree with Kaotic on this one, for low cost go with Swiftech 6002 or the TDX and for best commercially available solution go with the Swiftech Storm.

I put up another hand for the 6002. Great bang for the buck. I personally own a 6000 (3/8").

Awesome, thanks for the feedback. What kind of temps can I expect with the 6002?
