Here is the deal, after much debate and consideration about whether i should go air or water, i have decided that i really am not sure which. right now my CPU (with stock cooling and some case airflow mods) is idle at 33C, around 42 under load, i think this is pretty good seeing as the ambient air temp is around 30C. My question is this - am i going to be able to drop below ambient air temps with improved heat sink/air cooling? If not, am i going to be able to achieve a lesser value between idle and load temps with improved air cooling? i know that all air cooling is dependant on ambient air temps, i just dont know HOW dependant. Any help/opinions would be appreciated.
