I've noticed since I first built my computer (sig) that my computers been running a bit hot under stock cooling. I frequently have 45-50 idle on cpu, and 40-45 on system RAM and motherboard. I'm almost afraid to know what my video card is running at. In anycase, I thought I might as well decide to cool the thing: and if I'm going to cool it, I should cool it well.
At first, I thought perhaps a Zalman pair of fans would do the trick.
Video Card Cooler:
And though they look big, and supposidly work well, I thought perhaps I could do better. So, my question is: is there a better air cooling solution for this at the price, and would it be possible to up my budget to $150 dollars and get a decent water cooling system? I don't know where to start, and browsing the forums dosn't give me any really good idea of how I'd go about that business.
I thank you in advance.
Oh, by thhe way: I will overclock once I get this good cooling installed.
