Unless you're overclocking to very high levels, liquid cooling isn't worth it. You can get exceptional performance by buying some high performance fans. Or, just getting a case with better cooling. Move to a full tower if your case is too cramped.

Liquid cooling in a 900 can be done, but it gets kinda cramped because of how small it is.

I was going to ask if the Antec 900 had adequate room for a water cooling set. From what I've heard this thing moves air just fine

Are you already OCing?

Dude a liquid cooling project would be awesome. If I had room on my CM Elite 330 I'd definitely get liquid cooling just for looks! If you do happen to get it do some loops on the outside!

u can always buy the CoolIT Eliminator, I hear it is very good and cools really good, its $200 but a good liquid/water cooler is around that price to.

CoolIT Eliminator:

I have an Antec Twelve Hundred and it has loads of room but unless i was getting the $400 swiftech, i would go with the Coolit Eliminator. That is actually my plan since i will be trying to OC my Q6700 to about 3.5Ghz

Plenty of room left and nothing is cramped
