I am more or less a hobbiest that has a good bit to invest but I am not going to go crazy because I don't know what phase cooling is. I just got into water. I have also looked into AMD's. Being that they are posting faster Super PI scores. I want to hit 5ghz on a single chip or on a dual core. 5ghz per chip.

The VapoChill is a phasechanging kit. Phasechanging uses a liquid that evaporates at a very low temperature. When it evaporates (phasechange) it uses large amounts of energy without increases temperature. (the reason the temp doesnt go up, is the energy is used to break the bonds of the liquid so it can turn into gas). The vapor then goes into a condesor and turns back into a liquid to go back into the system. You must insulate the tubing so not to make condesation though. If you really want 5.0 or more, you are going to have to do phase chaning:

Since it is a kit, it is pretty easy and safe. I am going to be getting one myself eventually....

What one would you go with if you wanted to keep it in the case looking as stock as possible. Meaning I want to case to look from the outside like a regular comp.

The best you are going to do is that VapoChill with the advertised case. The case sits on top of the vapochill and has a whole in it for the parts. It sort of looks like one tall case.

yeh i would go for a vapochill like, they look amazin and you could clock it as high as you want, but what about the northbridge, will that not need good cooling too?

Or you can shave 600 bux off that, and get the P5WD2-Prem. Corsair 5400UL and a 920 Presler... I wouldn't want the EE due to the higher FSB (266 vs 200).. If you wanna spend more, get the 940.

I suggest you look into performance and forget processor speed because it means next to nothing. If you would like to see a head to head comparison, look at these results and ask yourself if you're still willing to spend $980 on that processor.

After testing both dual core processors I went with the Opteron 170 for my gaming machine. More and more games are coming out with the ability to access the second core.

For my Digital Multi-Media System I went with the Intel i630 and MCE so that I can stream movies throughout the house.

Keeps the kids out of my hair.
