msi K8N Neo4 motherboard
amd athlon 64 3500+ socket 939

Dude if your screen is turning purple in CS:S your video card is artifacting and you should definetly either send it back or get a new cooler. Most people hate the TT Bigwater SE but I like it. Keeps my temps anywhere from 25*C-27*C on idle and max 35*C @ 2.54GHz.

is it worth it to get liquid cooling?

People on CSS say that i can put water in instead of liquid and i was wondering if that is true?

well water is a liquid :amazed:

don't use tapwater because it will eventually damage your watercooling system.
