Silver arrow Vs Water cooling

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So i asked this same question in the air forum but want both sides of opinions:

Im debating between a silver arrow or a water setup. I want opponions on if its worth the extra money and hassle. I can get a SA for $80 or Im eyeing up a water setup with an Apogee XT block, Black Ice GTX Extreme 120 radiator and
a DDC Pump & XSPC resivor for $120+ a couple fans, so about $150. I Know i can probably get better temps from the water, but is it worth 2x the price and the hassle of setting up and maintaining? Also space in my Gladiator 600 would be tight for either, but do-able I think.

Ill have a 2500k and asus p67pro as soon as they're available. I'd like to OC as much as possible on reasonable voltage. I only want 4.5-4.8 Ghz or so and <1.45v

I dont want too much maintenance with my computer once its up and running and unless there's a worthy performance gain and the extra $80 isnt irrelevant to me.



So, what should i do?

Whoa that has a lapping option too! I'd be all over that deal if I wasn't going with water cooling.

I did this kit from Crazy PC.
http://www.crazypc.com/products/PX93800.html
I did both gpu's not long after and added a 360 rad. Crazy PC has some good prices and they ship quick.

I read somewhere on OCN that CrazyPC's lapping service is really crappy. Although they do have great prices on things at times.
