Since you can't overclock, why are you worried about watercooling?
Dell clearly ignored all industry standards when making their motherboard, so I guess you have to drill new holes or get a new mobo.
yep. I have thought about this too. The mobo is proprietary, and uses special PSU connectors, not just any 24-pin connectors. Also, the case is proprietary, and only has room for their special, bottom-mounted PSU. Therefore, if I wanted to really unleash my machine to be an OC-able system, I would need a new mobo, case and PSU. Yeah, right, I am not gonna drop money like that to OC my processor. I am trying to get a X1900 or 7900, and that would really set me back. Thus, I can still deal with Dell's inadequacy for a while without any REAL repercussions. I mean, my Pressy is still a relatively fast chip and its my graphics solution that is holding me back from those precious frames, not my CPU.
