well..... chipset coolers are not needed unless you are gonna go really high overclocking, i mean like crazy. Just make sure your chipset does not overheat to much.

Chipset coolers only needed if 1. Your stock one sucks, which generally the ABits do. 2. If you're going for high FSB's not so much just CPU clocks alone.

Bigwater sucks dude for GOOD cooling. high end air solution would out perform it, my SLK-900A and tornado sure does.

If you spend $200

Danger Den TDX
D4 Pump
Tyon Tubing
Weapon 302 core <---heatercore (like a radiator)

then you will have a good performing water cooling setup.

The Zalman is a beast. Albeit a very quiet beast.

You can't even tell how big it is from the pictures until you hold it in your hand, then you realize how big it is.

Here's what it looks like in my case.
