I don't agree and believe at all what Adrienspawn said.. He wouldn't get the same temps with a $300 WC loop, that's just a dumb thing to say.. You wouldn't see any WC'ers in here if that were "true".. (no pun intended )
Actually I idle under 30 and load under 50. I'm saying that it isnt worth going up to 300$ for a WC loop for maybe a 2C difference over a 50$ heatsink.

Well Blue I think you should look at what independent reviews have show the two products that you are looking at and see if there is a big enough difference in temps to justify the price difference... Just my two cents...

Water cooling has the advantages of low and stable temps. Depends on what environment you use your PC in, but air cooling tends to fluctuate a lot when the ambient temperature goes out of whack. Water cooling still depends on the ambient temperatures, but its performance tends to be more consistent.

But with air cooling, its easier to upgrade and replace parts, and you cant make any mistakes like with water.

(unless you get mad and start hitting your mobo with an IFX-14. ouch.)

A water cooling loop is easy to upgrade too. Just get different blocks, buy a bigger/better rad, replace the coolant, etc. Much more options than with air. Once you have everything set up (tubing and all that) you can leave it as it is, unless you want to change the whole setup around. Again, which one is "better" will depend on your environment and what you want out of a cooling system.

The BT will cool it just fine. I had one and it worked out fine. the TRUE 120 only drops temps by about 3-4C from the BT. If you feel the $55 plus a fan is worth it then by all means grab one of those. Otherwise the BT is fine. It is going to be Summer though and today it was 96F here in Bellflower,CA. Ridiculously hot for this time of the year. So a TRUE 120 may be worth it or even WC.

Another WC convert . Idle temps. are never more than 10*C above ambient, and load temps. range from 15-30*C above ambient, but that's mostly because I'm cooling a 1.55V Brisbane and a 1.35V R600 on the same loop with a small GTS240. I mean, when your room temperature is at least 29*C all this really pays off.

So.....I could put my GPU in the loop if I deem it necessary.....
