There is a performance/price return that does not fit for me with the more extreme methods of cooling. I look at how much time and effort that is necessary to keep a water-cooled system running well versus purchasing a higher end processor and overclocking with good air and pretty much no effort necessary with regards to system maintenance and creation.

Water-cooling only makes sense to those who love the hobby of such a thing. I find it far too time involved for my own needs. All my games play fast as fast can be and at this point I will just await Conroe and once again will overclock on air.

It was an Opteron 148 and I bought it for my brother's son. It will be better than his 3000+ @ 2.6 and I think I can get it ~3.0GHz clean and stable. That will be the fun for me.

Its called the Law of Diminishing Returns. I agree, air cooling is much more practicle. I enjoy water-cooling, but it is not for everyone.

Yes, i am saving 2,000 as of right now, for my next rig, which will be the best processor for gaming and i will be purchasing W/C hopefully, because i want a good overclock and push it to its limits, and ill use that w/c set up for everything, but i know you need to clean it a lot, but im not sure, ill reasearch it in the summer, hopefully get it
