Well if your going to replace your fans. Here are my suggestions.

This first fan is a 80mm, with 84-CFM. This is the best 80mm fan on the market. I use this for my cpu fan.

This second fan is a 80mm also, and it works at 50-CFM
http://www.frozencpu.com/fan-07.html

Now these are what you want. This first fan is a 120mm, with 108-CFM. Very good fan.
http://www.frozencpu.com/fan-24.html

This is the best fan i know of. Its a 120mm fan, with 125-CFM. I suggest getting at least one. Putting this on your removable side panel would help better then anything else.

lol actually, i don't have a place to put a fan on my side cover.... mine's just a old tower.... nothing fancy at all.... but thanks anyway...

when I want it really cooled, i just remove the side cover and put a fan (like a normal fan 30cm atleast )right next to it... the temperature normally goes from 40C to around 32C in 20 sec... pretty cheap cooling

Water cooling really isn't tricky to setup. Trust me I was paranoid as all hell when first setting up mine. But you set it up, leak test it for 24 hours, read up on the best way to set it up, just like you would with fans when you didn't know about computers, you had to read about it and learn right? Same thing.

Once it's set up it's really easy after that and hooking other systems up will be a breeze

Yeah, i heard my fair share about water cooling disasters. I think its all about installation though. How about turning your computer on, with OC settings. But your liquiud cooling system wont start.

I think it's carelessness of the user in those situations. a CPU water block is a lot lighter than some of the big monsterous copper heatsinks available out right now for the top air cooling solutions, like the one mike has that Tower 112 or whatever.

What? I don't understand what you are saying. How would a computer with the settings in the BIOS to an OC'd state have anything to do with the system coming on?

The newer systems pumps are connected via 3 or 4pin power connector that goes straight to the PSU for power

I read that this guy had a liquid cooling system, for OC of course. Im not 100% sure if it wouldent turn on, or if he had to manually turn it on and he forgot. But either way, his system was running with OC settings but no cooling. So his system burned to sh!t.

Yeah some of the older ones required that you actually have to manually turn on the pump, but all the newer liquid cooling specific pumps all plug in straight to your PSU so it all powers up.

Regardless of OC settings his system would have fried assuming it was the older chips that didn't have a thermal shutdown point.
