Here you go- http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...106-053&depa=0

I also think the bigwater is the way to go. I would have gotten it but right now it is out of my budget and I am doing very well on air. Plus my dad thinks it's immoral to have water so close to electronic components. He has helped pay for alot of the stuff.

Yeah, I'm kind of paranoid about the fact of liquids near my electrical components also =/

Moving into this new case my temps have gone up a little, so from what I've read the bigwater will probably do better than the current temps, or atleast it better! as thats the point, PLUS I want to get that extra radiator...don't know how big of a difference that'll make though.

But I plan on doing a leak test though, some reviews I've seen suggest leaving it going for 24 hours, don't know if I'll let it go quite that long though although it probably is worth it, whats 24 hours compared to the hours you'll spend kicking yourself for not testing it

I was gonna get the 6600GT, but I can hold off on a graphics card for now and spend $70 less on better cooling, $40 less if I get two rads, plus currently I'm not playing any vidyah games

Exactly! If not for overclocking, my computer would only be an average computer at 1.8 ghz instead of 2.5.

Yeah I gotta get it on mine....I dont like running it above 40 on idle if possible....at the moment idleing at 45c is buggin me...I know the max is much higher but I dont like it. Nubius do you have any idea on average what the temp difference is on water vs air?
