Water cooling is only worth it if you go for a very high end kit, otherwise it is outperformed by air cooling. Also If you want the best performance, then go for 1200MHz DDR2 memory instead of DDR3 as DDR2 at those speeds outperforms all DDR3 memory available ATM.

I beg to differ. If you're gonna build that off the hook rig you need a case that looks as good as what's inside. P182SE Antec.



It has more room than you'll really need and it's modular construction lets you take out what you won't be needing. It also sports two liquid cooling hose ports on the back. it's heavy though. Curb wieght is 35 pounds. Loaded with my set up its pushing 50 pounds. $200.00usd. May be less if you can find it on NewEgg.

the antec 900 has a 200 mm fan on top
to front side fans for up to 9 hard drives (thats with out optical drives)
and a fan in the back plus the option for 2 more fans
also having the psu on the bottom sucks all the heat right out from your gpu
and trust me the antec has a large amount of room
more then enough for all your liquid cooling needs
even tho i suggest that you dont take that rout
since that quad is 45nm
on air your should be able to clock beyond 4ghz with no problem ive seen it already done
