Other then noise what are the key water cooling advantages when compared to a properly air cooled system in a Thermaltake Armor (with the side 120cm fan) http://www.thermaltake.com/product/C.../va8003bws.asp

Edit/Question: You guys mentioned hard drives don't need cooling. Ok please no flaming or questions until done (i'll post some pics and stats when it's all done) but i have 4 x raptor x 150GB drives in raid 10 and another 2 x hitachi 1TB drives in raid 1. (i'm big on fault tolerance but i defiantly want speed) do you still think i don't need water cooling or with that many drives i should get something?
