i have the armor with the 25cm side panel fan; running a fairly respectable overclock on a core 2 and the cpu and motherboard temps are lower with the side panel on than they are with it off.
considering the relative gains or diminishes ... i couldn't justify moving to water over what i have now on air. just wouldn't be worth it.
currently, i have a core 2 duo 6400 at 1.4ghz over it's stock speed. on air
the armor is a seriously good case ... as long as you don't mind a bit of dust (the *whole* thing is ventilated ... perforated drive bay bezels and what not.
also, you should be able to find the armor case for less than 199 if you look around and are willing to mail order. i paid about 170 from directron.com.
they have it listed for around 160.00 at the moment:
