Water Cooling: The first question to ask yourself is "Do I want an internal or external water cooling system?" Internal water cooling systems take up room in your case, but the case is still moble. External water cooling systems do not take up space but to move your computer tower, you also have to move the water cooling system.

The next question is,"What do I want to water cool?" The CPU, and/or the video card and/or the hard drive and/or the northbridge. The system you purchase needs to have all the parts you need.

The next question is, "Does it matter how much noise the water cooling system makes?"

I suggest you start with FrozenCPU.com and look at all the optios, then search Google on the brand(s) you like to read the reviews.

I use the Zalman Reserator 1 Plus.

Go to DangerDen.com and start looking around, then come back here and ask some specific questions. Also, save yourself a few bucks and get the 3700 instead of the 4000. You're not going to use a 12X cpu multiplier on water cooling.
