Believe it or not, I'm undecided whether or not to "practice" first with a S939 H2O build, or just jump straight in with AM3. Thanks to my brother-in-law, I'll have an AM3 motherboard in late November (the Gigabyte GA-MA790FXT-UD5P). I haven't decided what chip to use, though I'm more inclined to go with a quad. A well-trusted adviser, though, suggests (quite rightly) that duals are still quite viable AND are able to reach higher core speeds, so I may go with that option.
If I use the water-cooling parts on the AM3 build exclusively, it'll be a while before that project gets off the ground.
Whatever the case, I'll keep you all apprised.
