If you buy a kit for $150, or $120 (which I believe is as cheap as they get) you are paying for the bragging rights, nothign else. If you are LUCKY, your temps will stay at what they are currectly. I had the Thermaltake Aquarius II kit, and I would get an idle at around 107ºF, whereas I would get about 100ºF with the stock fan on my P4 2.4. You can get a top end air cooling solution for half of a bottom end water cooling solution. wate coooling, like Nube said, is not something you go cheap on. It is something that you put money inot. You treat it right, pputting the rights parts in it and spending the money, it rewards you with performance. My water cooling system so far has cost around $200 or so, and it is a VERY high end system with some VERY high end parts. not the highest end, but up there.
