so i've got a little bit of money to spend, and i was wondering what you guys thought about this. i've got two choices, an Android Internet Tablet, or a water cooling system, that for now will only run the cpu.

i've been wanting an android internet tablet for a while. but i just recently came up with the idea to get this. i'd like to be able to add my gpu into it later on, but this may not happen, its a N470GTX Twin Frozr II, so it cools pretty good.

so at the moment it would need to cool a 3.6 ghz core i7 930. i've had it to 4.1 ghz, but i only run it at 3.6 for everyday use. (the water cooling would go in my sig rig), so i've got the haf x to put 120 rad's in, i can do a 3x120 on the top and one 120 on the back. this is going to be the first time i've ever gotten close to doing something like this, so it's going to be a new experience for me.

also i'd like to make sure it cools better than my H70, which it probably will, but just want to make sure smile.gif

my budget is probably 200-300, because thats what i would have to spend to get a good archos internet tablet or something. thanks in advance, and there will probably be more questions to come.

If you already have a android phone I see no need for a tablet. Wait until march when Verizon comes out with the Motorola Etna. Google it if you have never heard of it. Its a 1.2ghz dual processor, front and back camera, 4.3 inch screen, 4g LTE, beast of a phone. AT&T will have the same phone but they are calling it the Olympus.

So.... water cool now, save money til March, buy etna in March. thumb.gif

watercooling your rig is infinitely more fun than a tablet. You have a smart phone already so a tablet is pretty worthless. Be warned... Watercooling becomes an addiction and you will end up with more than just a cpu loop later on
