I am really looking for temps. Noise is not to much of a concern but at the same time not looking for an airplane taking off next to me either. I want to be about 4.2 everyday usage on my I7-920. The coolness factor is a plus though but really looking to drop temps. After looking into my budget just now I found out I can spend about 1k. I know that my GPU blocks are going to eat up a huge chuck of change and that overall it is not going to be cheap. Unfortunately the ambient temps in my room is from 78-85. I do not get a lot of cool air blowing into the room that the computer is in. I also understand that after my water cooling setup that I might not be sitting next to a heater and that would be a huge plus.

Oh man. 1k is WAY more than enough for a very good dual loop setup...

Do you want everything internal or are you ok with a rad outside your case?

I really would like to keep everything in the case if possible if not that will be okay too. I figured that 1k would easily be enough as well and granted I have that to spend coming out cheaper will be a positive to have extra money for other things.

shoot... forgot about this thread.

I like everything internal also, but with what you running you really just can't fit it all inside. I'll throw together a list of parts tomorrow.
