Have you gone so far as to use extreme air cooling yet? You should really do alot of research before you take the dive into water cooling, there are dozens of guides out on the internet. Watercooling's something that can be really good if you got all the knowledge, but can screw you out of hundreds of dollars of hardware if you screw up.

personally if i'd be dumping this much money on a setup, drop that x2, and get the fx-55 san deigo. and if you put that on water... watch it fly. :) and ur budget of 500 would be a nice PS unit, but since ur new to it i wouldnt advise it. Just do to www.dangerden.com. look at the TDX or RBX water block, dual or triple heatercore, a resivour, and one of DD's pumps. Danger Den is a really good watercooling company. you cant go wrong with it.
