Get watercooling Or get back Into Airsoft?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Okay, So i'm having the BIGGEST Issue on this, and OCN is my LAST RESORT. I'm looking at getting a Corsair Hydro H50, Or Get back into airsoft. Here are the issues:

Airsoft:
I get excersize
I actually "experience" war, sort of
I get to hang with some friends that I normally don't see often
I can actually use some of my Tactics I've learned in the past
I get out of the house (I literally sit on my butt all day, going to school on PC, Playing games on PC, Watch video on PC, etc.)

Now, for the H50:
I get better Overclocks, meaning more performance for games
Liquid cooling means, a Quieter system.
Future proof (sort of, for getting something like a Six Core AM3 Build later on in life)
Can Actually utilize my 550 BE, and Max BFBC2 Out w/ good framerates
May be able to hit 4GHz+ Club


Now, I'm just sitting here in the seed of a pickle.....

Help me out, making a decision, because this one I just CANNOT make on my own, LOL!

Hmmm??? Pseudo water cooling or plastic BB's? Tough choice. I'd probably go with the BB's.

i cant see you spending much money on airsoft if your fighting over an h50 or not.... its a sport where you have to put good money into it to get good results, dont waste your money on airsoft trust me been there done that waste of time... get an h50 and find another thing to get you outside... for me i mountain bike 2 or 3 times a week for about 4 hours now thats good stuff.

If you are at the age when your friends go out and play airsoft then have some fun shooting them(with airsoft guns)! You will have plenty of chances to acquire water cooling for your PC throughout your life so why not now enjoy the trend of airsoft, get out and get some fresh air, before everyone thinks they are too old to play anymore, enjoy it.

Well, I would recommend saving up and get a real loop.

If not, buy a nice KWA airsoft gun that holds it value and doesn't break.

I've spent about $3000 on airsoft until I sold it and bought a real AR-15 and a computer.

It is all about what you think you will have more fun with.

You really can't "get" into something without passion to do so. That's how I got into PC's, and Airsoft a few years back. I never left airsoft completely, It's just that I had my in and right outside the door phases.
