Where are you guys getting the HAF 932 cases with the all-black interior? The ones on newegg all have the standard gray aluminum finish, and i hate it!

Nah dude, dont get a full coverage waterblock. Just get something that cools the GPU only and use RAM sinks for everything else. This is all you need,

Newegg.com - Swiftech MCW60-R VGA Waterblock (Blister pack)

I have one on my 260 and when Its folding it never goes above 45C

I paid about $50 for mine, including vram/vreg heatsinks.
