Default 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.
