What new CPU, and MOBO you getting? TOP 2 CPU blocks I would say is D-Tek FuZion , and Stinger V8

D-Tek: http://www.sharkacomputers.com/dtekfuzion.html
Stinger V8: http://www.stingerwaterblocks.mysite...hoto_page.html
LOL sorry I was not trying to blow up your system. I did what I said above to my system without any power going to the MOBO (pulled 20-4pin out) Then turn PSU on to let pump drain the rest. My case is to big to move around and tilt to empty out the rest of the water. Sorry for leaving the most important part out.
