Cooling the NB with water is a worthwhile thing now. This is because in order to get the Core 2 to its maximum potential, you need more than 1.85V in the NB.
Thats good to know...SDdumper and I were trying different things with air on his to see if it would cool enough, didn't look like it was going to though...He left before I ever found out for sure....

I have a BIX 120.2, would adding another or upgrading to a 120.4 drop me closer to ambient? I am always looking for lower temps, and plan to add my NB in the loop soon.

If you don't mind a slightly higher cfm fan I would use a GTX 240, if you have a couple of GPU's, CPU and a NB you might want a 360...I don't really see a reason for using a 480, unless you just want one...I'm going to upgrade to the GTX 240 myself...I don't really know if it will help temps a whole lot but it has a 50% less pressure drop...

Thanks for the insite. CHeck my post in the air cooling section. I put up a new thread on the PSU conv, and some new 24v PABST fans I hooked up to the Rad.
