Dragon Full Tower from

Any other case suggestions would be nice I want to be able to customize it for neons and extra fans.

Also i would Like to know a good water cooling system so I can overclock my computer.Also what can I overclock the 3.40 proccessor to.

I would Like to make it look really hot with neons and any other items availible.
Thanks

Gonna need one HELL of a power supply.

Im not aware of the best "overclockable" motherboard for P4s, someone else would be better qualified to answer that question.

ok a few things. You cant overclock a 3.40 saftley sicne thats the fastest they make. ITs also the fastest mobo they sell. So if you OC it to maybe a 3.45 or somthing like that, you have a change that it will burn out. Also why would u wanna OC it? There is a group of people who OCed a 3.0 to a 4.0. But there cooling was liquid nitrogen. So... For the type of motherboard here is a good one. http://www.giga-byte.com/MotherBoard...GA-8SG800.htm.

theres the price and all you need there. A good water cooling would be http://www.frozencpu.com/cgi-bin/fro...ex-wat-26.html

they are a very good brand. Also, you will need a very big PSU. Probley like 550 watts since you will be powering that 3.40 CPU and the water cooling kit. I have a 2.66 and i need a 550 PSU. The water cooling kits use a lot of power
