Cooling: Any suggestions?

Cooling is a debateable subject. I am sure this PC will create a lot of heat. I am considering water cooling internal or external, but.. I am unsure that my freind will be ontop of it. Check the water levels and change the liquid every 6 months and such. Maby I should just fill the case with hella fans. Any suggestions?

Your getting the 6800 vanilla??? Get at least a 6800GT! Also, I see that this is going to be a very high end system, so I would advise you to get the 3700+ (or 4000+) San Diego CPU, not the Venice. That is a very good optical drive, I have the same one. That is also a very good PSU, I have the 520W version of it. For the case, might I suggest a Lian Li PC-65B? Don't get that motherboard, get a DFI Lanparty nF4 SLI-DR. For the hard drives, I would get 2x SATA2 HITACHI Deskstar T7K250's and run them in RAID 0. Now that would be a screamin' rig.
