thats one of the kits i was considering, and from what i know (not much) it is a pretty good setup.
but, what i DO know is that your e8400 will do 3.6 on a crappy air cooler. probably the stock cooler even. easily. well, its in your sig...do you have it at 3.6 now or did you mean you want to go to 4.6?

i think you would need a big amount of voltage to run at 4.6 ghz ;p

this is an ongoing debate around here....i say watercooling isnt needed on the 45nm (especially the duals...maybe on the quads) because you will far surpass the danger line of voltage before your temps get out of hand using air. thats my opinion.
