Don't think your going to get much more out of that wolfdale unless you feel like running 1.4v or more into it daily which I wouldn't regardless of water. Plus if you end up wcing your going to want to see the insides of the computer so just cut a window already! Then you have to worry about where your going to mount your triple rad which to me seems a bit much just to cool the cpu. I prefer internally mount rads as they look cleaner.

edit: other things you can do is change the cooling on your mobo. Heres a pic of my old setup w/ thermalrights all over it.

Is that an Asus Maximus Formula? Can I do something like that with mine?

Maybe with Sunbeams? Do u guys know anything about anodizing? I was thinking of having the inside of my case done in blue.
Watercooling would look "cool" with blue tubing. Cutting the side for a window is definitely in order , then.

Sweet jesus, that's a load of cooling. It looks like a friggin' city block.

Shouldn't unless you shove them on there too hard and don't have proper support.
