Watercooling for everything except the hard drive, chipset, and mosfets. 3 way sli under effective watercooling is awesome. Cannot wait to do the chipset here before long.

If that does not work I hop in a Madcat and Blast it to microscopic Particles.

Come on, someone's got to use LN2 on their main rig!!
They're probably trying to cast their vote now, but I imagine constantly refilling the pipe on top of the CPU before the LN2 all evaporates probably slows down their ability the browse the web. :teehee:
