I am wondering iof I can spend = to or slightly more than air cooling to cool my CPU.

OK. The thermaltake is out. Understood.

well if you want a good system that will outperform the best in air you can get a low end kit with a smaller radiator and a weaker pump but this wont last long because then if your serious about this 6Ghz (which personally i dont think its possible on liquid) you will have to change EVERYTHING which would be even MORE money which is not good... a cheap WC setup might beat air but a decent WCing setup with some thought in it can DESTROY air and well worth it with almost the same setup that I gave you except with a 480 GTX I hit 4.3 GHz with my E8500 on air i couldnt even get to 3.6 without sending the temps WAY high

No. 6 Ghz is just an idea.

I'm just saying that if I can go liquid for the same price as air, then I'd rather go liquid, IF IT WORKS better. (CPU cooling only)

I'm looking for best bang for my buck in terms of degrees celcius. The same way we look for bang for our buck in terms of fps and video cards for $$$ spent.

And again, can we please forget I ever posted the thermaltake link? lol.

well air will ALWAYS be cheaper and i guess bang for buck aswell since you only buy ONE think with air and with going liquid you need the Rad, res, pump, cpu block, tubing etc it all adds up... and its really up to you if your willing to make the jump or not you can get the same temps with a cheap setup close to the price of air or you can get REALLY good temps from a Decent setup which I have showed you in my post b4

I am leaning towards the swiftech you showed me.

EDIT:

No... I'm not spending $130 for the bragging right of having a water cooler that only performs as well as air. I suppose the true goal for me is to BEAT air as cheaply as possible.

Not going to happen, I'm going watercooling and have been piecing parts together. For a good WC kit its like $300-500 buck easy and that will beat air no problem. The goal isn't to beat air as cheaply as possible, it's to get better efficiency and better temps and performance, everyone knows that WC cost $$$ and is not for everyone.

So... Why do they sell cheaper parts for water cooling if you're telling me they will not outperform a tuniq tower air cooler?

That doesn't make economic sense.

Okay, I already know the answer. People buy crap.

However fr the purposes of this project, I just want to be able to reach higher clocks, and so I am turning to water cooling. But If it's going to cost me $200 just for the CPU, then this seems a bad idea. I am under the impression I can pull this off for $130ish. What do you think?

The best way (IMO) to get great temps for the lowest price is to build a bong.

http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...ilds-bong.html

Bongs cost much less then a rad and give better temps. People don't normally use them just becuase they are not "pre-built" However I have started making them for sale so if you want one made for you I can do it.

I can also hold your hand and help you build one.

Regarding your first post, no one has hit 6Ghz on "liquid cooling". 6Ghz was achieved with Liquid Nitrogen.

To be honest I'd just get a TRUE, if you don't want to spend a whole lot. It performs as well as any water cooling kit or water cooling system you put together yourself for less than $150.
