I have about had it with air cooling
 
I just can't wait till I get my water cooling loop in my next build. All the noise and now the third time I have cut myself on this zalman. I am sick of it. It is a great cooler cooling wise, but they could have dulled the edges of the fins.

Has anyone else had any battles with there zalman and come out bleeding? :)

It cost a good $250+, for a quality watercooling system. The brands that are reliable, are mostly Swiftech and DangerDen.

I've been recommened DangerDen multiple times.

Infact they're based here in Oregon :)

Astoria, Oregon to be exact. That's rather random haha. When I think of Astoria, I think of a small old town by the beach.

just the proc generally speaking, you can find a nice kit for gpu's as well for 250-300 including proc
