Water cooling kits for AMDs are pretty pointless, since most want to get a better overclock, and premade cooling kits won't accomplish it efficiently. Water cooling kits for Pentiums are a bit better, since they tend to overheat and throttle alot, so you can put that under control with a cheap kit.

almost all, if not all, pre-built water cooling kits suck ***, especially for $100 you'll probably get something that cools worse than higher end HSF

just get yourself a zalman 7700cu and a tube of Artic silver 5
