You know when I was piecing together my turbo kit for my b16 I bought a Fluidyne oil cooler...was only about 25+shipping and holds 2 120mm fans perfectly. It's also all aluminum and since it's fluidyne it looks pretty sexy.

Just an idea when you are looking for a radiator.

Well, thanks for all of the help guys, but I think I'll just stick with air, untill I know that I'll even have enough money for that stuff. I am pretty sure that the stock GPU cooler is good (it better be, to take up two expansion slots, lol), and I can just slap on a good Zalman heatsink/fan on the CPU.

I'm still considering it, just not as heavily now that it looks so complicated and expensive. It honestly doesn't seem worth it, after all the hastle, and at triple the cost of air cooling, it honestly doesn't seem worth it.

I'm sure it would be easy to put together after a little research and a few tuts, but it is still a hastle.

You read my entire post, then read my sig? What tremendous effort! You win an internet!


Here\'s a quote I saw once on a /b/ forum a while back, I think it\'s funny:

I\'ve been thinking of \"Heck\" lately. If it even exists, it\'s got to be a much nicer place than \"Heaven\". I mean... all the gay men are down there. You KNOW it\'s well decorated.

Note that I do not in any way condone homophobia or am in any way homophobic. I merely thought that it was clever.
