good exhaust and intake are the keys. and also get a good cpu heatsink/fan like one from zalman or thermaltake and some arctic silver thermal paste for it and you should be fine. just make sure you monitor your temps.

When all else fails...Ham Radio!

I still have the same old HP DV9700T laptop I've had for years...still kickin'

IMO, Thermaltake makes crappy heatsinks except for the BT which is very good. Thermalright as some very nice ones, as to Scythe.

LMAO!! i was thinking about putting my new psu on top of my case (outside of it) and then routing the cables back thourgh the rear of it. do you think this would help the ait temps inside? also its a Enermax Liberty 620 which has a 120M fan on the bottom. would it be ok if i turned it upside down or would that disrupt the air flow to much?

So far my knowledge is:

Liquid cooling

What are some other hardware bits I can use and how efficent is liquid cooling? How hard is it to rig up? And would I rather just buy numerous amounts of fans instead of liquid cooling?

Much thanks if you could help

Overclocking is only good if you really do need a speed increase. What are your specs - exact models and speeds - we can help you further if we get as much information as possible.

Also, what kind of cooling setup do you have at the moment?
