Money is not really a consideration. Work is paying for this, so I don't really have to cut corners if I don't have too.

What's the consensus on water cooling?

I personally don't like the look or the price of the Thermaltake SwordM. Any particular reason you choose it?

I would highly recommend you NOT do watercooling yet until you built your system and ready with a plan ton intergrate it.

I only chose the Thermaltake case because it had good reviews on Newegg. Like I said I don't know a whole lot of about water cooling - at least not what the good products are. I'd rather get everything in one go that try and retrofit the water cooling later.

I think I am pretty set with my internals. The real concern for me is the case and cooling. That's the one area were I am completely clueless.
