I would just get a nice air cooler, a Zalman or Thermalright, over a cheap water cooling system.

well i have a zalman 7000 copper or watever its called...but i jus want to get rid of excess fan noise if possible...
so i was thinkin water cooling bc its not that much money, would it be any better temp wise? i really dont wanna spend 300 bucks on water cooling when im not overheating


i guess im just wondering if water cooling will do better then zalman on my cpu and 3d card...
i idle at like 42 and load at around 56 which is still REAL high, i would think that water would bring that down much more and allow some more mhz as well

Maybe, but you've already got a great fan system in there, and you're definetly not overheating. Why spend $200+ on something you don't need?

Vantec Stealths are nice

Papst fans are always quiet for the flow they put out

You'd still need fans for most watercooling setups! Unless you get a Zalman Reserator type setup
