How about you consider a system where you pick each part individually as opposed to somekind of kit? Watercooling is just dealing with routing some low pressure water around some sensitive electronic equipment, it is not real difficult to get right if you keep reading. Expect to clock higher and run a bit cooler, nothing terribly dramatic. For my area (high ambients) and with a desire to run at 4.0GHz 24/7 I need that etxra cooling ability that water offers.

I did not like the case either, I use the 1200 and a test station for my watercooled projects. I have a 900 and would not like to try and watercool it but I am sure plenty of people have done it. I also run a HAF 932 that works fine at 3.6 (i7-920D0) on a megahalems 24/7. There is that extreme heat output change in the i7 when you move from 3.6 too 4.0.

In that price range I'd recommend the HAF 932. You can fit a triple radiator up top without modding. It also had good cable management and other neat features. I also second the custom loop advice, after you put the kit together and learn a bit more you'll realize how parts of it suck and you'll end up spending more money in total. If you can stretch a little more get a Corsair 700D, it has a bit more room for watercooling parts, and you can add an 800D window later on.

So say i get the haf 932 how much extra would i need to water cool?
