Default Dilemma... Crazy WC Loop or Chiller!?

Hey guys, I've been over at XS for a little bit, trying to look at some of the more crazy stuff... and thus have reached a dilemma in my crappy PC building career :laughing:

Should I move down the path of a crazy WC loop in a Mid-Tower... or should I go with a converted A/C chiller?

A/C Chiller:

Pros:
  • Price
  • Performance
  • l337ness

Cons:
  • Size
  • Noise
  • Ease

Water Cooling:

Pros:
  • Simplicity
  • Ease
  • Looks
  • Overall performance (multiple loops for CPU/GPU)

Cons:
  • Price
  • Having to bleed multiple loops

W/C. A/C is stupid.

HOW CAN YOU SAY THE A/C IS STUPID!?

its low-end phase! ~-20*C load!

I'd personally have to say, the WC would be much cooler... but A/C would be a much more interesting modding experience

I don't want a full tower... if I were to go to a full tower, I'd rather have the A/C unit mounted in a similar black aluminum case as a bottom to my current case

I like having a nice little compact PC... and the good full towers are too pricey

water cooling doesn't take up much room

I've got enough room for two dual 120mm radiators (possible 1 dual and 1 tri) as well as 2 more 120mm radiators (for a NB loop or a HDD loop)

my lian-li was only $80... the ABS Black Pearl or Lian-Li V2000 costs 200+ which are the only two full towers I really like

the black pearl is a sexy beast and nos is a lucky nub to own one
