ok if zen is getting 19,000 in 3dmark03 with water cooling and 2x6600gt's then what can you get with just air cooled? with like 5 fans or so because im planning on the same set-up as him except fans

prolly same, cuz i think he mentioned he only OCd a little, which is ez to do with a64's and air cooling, like mine is running 37-39C idle, and 48-50 full load, at 2.5ghz from the normal 2.0

Those numbers are crazy. I'm not even close to what he's got. You can overclock it to 3 GHz max. I'm sure it can handle it.

uhhh u buy the case, and then get the water cooling kit, i would prolly go with
Thermaltake BigWater 12cm Liquid Cooling System, Model "CL-W0005" http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...106-049&depa=1
or
ZALMAN RESERATOR 1 Fanless Water Cooling System(Reservoir+Radiator+Water Pump) -RETAIL
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...118-111&depa=1

and the only thing u need to worry about really, so long as u follow instruction booklet thing, is the changing out of the water, i think u gotta remove the waterblocks cuz if u just take tubes out .... i think u kno wut wil happen
