    A well vented case usually does wonders after you get a cpu cooler. (not being a smart ass just mentioning it). I will let you know about the artic cooling freezer pro 64 in a week or less.

    Dood, be careful you don't get sucked into that thing

    Nice cooler but I'm a little concerned how much the pelts draw.

    Those Kits are not the best. An actually WC system is usually the best way to go. I'm not trying to bash your choice, but those things may not do what you want them to do. I would talk to the WC guys in the cooling section, they know how to get things done.

    You should see my ghetto air cooling setup. Have you ever helped the airflow of your computer with a box fan? haha
