You better find out if the holes on your motherboard are ATX and mountable on a standard ATX case.

For water cooling, head to the water cooling forum here and let us know your budget and what you want to cool.
Yea im there now and reading, thanks people!

Most all Mid-tower mobo's can fit a variety of size mobo's ... BTX, mATX, etc.. so its not that big of a worry. If you buy a cheapo generic case... it might be an issue.

As for the Cosmos, it is set! Its got at least 2 spots pre-cut for mounting a 120.2 radiator..one on the top and one on the bottom.

*A good CPU only loop will be ~200$ final cost, with tubing and all the goodies thrown in.

Yes, but an ATX case won't be able to fit a BTX. Since the layout of the motherboard is completely different. Example from Thermaltake



I have seen newer Dells that are starting to use ATX again so luckily you have an ATX board.

Armor is great if you enjoy having the same case as 99% of people.

changing cases is really simple. I highly reccomend checking out best buy and seeing if they have any rocketfish cases in stock.

Seriously high end cases for dirt cheap.

its basically a lian li 250$ case for 50 bucks.

My transition from Mid tower to Full tower, was easy, but some parts that came with the case like the motherboard mounting panel, never understood why its needed, but I just use stand-off's if your used to using that. But you would have to get used to having sooo much space.
