lately I've been getting away from the air and converting to the pre built water cooler systems (corsair) ...and frankly, i will soon be getting rid of the good ole tried and true sunbeam core contact 120 and getting into a corsair h80 for lga 775...there aren't many that will do socket 775, but since i've started folding again i need all the cooling (quietly) that i can get...

I picked other since my computer is both water and air cooled.


+1 but i went with water :snap:

still happy on air with this first self built attempt, tho i have the itch to try water before just for the heck of fun building and seeing how it work until...

 I just don't like dealing with the hassle any more. :lol:

 

and who needs water with a stock running rig like the way i did anyways, unless somebody's giving it for free. a decent loop/s will cost me a fortune :lol:
