Hi Reaper,

Go with the Frio.

From experience I can tell you that built-in (cheap) water cooling, especially the Thermaltake Bigwater cooling systems are just a waste of money. They perform as well as a half-decent aftermarket air heatsink.

I don't want to discourage you, water cooling is really fun to experiment with, but I suggest either going for a bigger/better water cooling setup or a top notch air heatsink like the Frio OCK

Thanks for the reply Christopher. My only concerns about this heatsink is that it might not fit in my case without taking the side fan off. And i need that fan for two reasons, 1 I need a good positive airflow and 2 It need to cool my overclocked Asus GTX560.
Dont know what to do sadsmiley.gif

I used to worry about that as well, I had a Scythe Ninja in a mid tower case which might be about the same size.

Don't worry about your case temperature or that pretty useless side fan, these heatsinks don't only cool your cpu, but all the air that passes through its fins. You rear exhaust fan should withdraw all unwanted heat.

As for your GTX 560, you really don't need to worry as long as it has a fully functional heatsink, if your avatar is your PC, turn your PSU upside-down to suck out the hot excess air from your card. I did it with my GTX 480 and it helps a lot.

You might also be able to cut the GTX 560's temps in half if you buy an aftermarket cooler for it as well, anything $30 would be good.

I don't know that much about these compact water cooling solutions, but I can suggest Asetek Waterchill, Coolit, Corsair.
