Very effective, but a bit expensive and some of the kits are hard to install. That is about it.

Good Liquid Cooling systems
are ThermalTake BIGWATER, ThermalTake Aquarius 3, and the KingWin liquid cooling kit.

Watercooling keeps things very cool and allows for futher OC. The drawback is that it can leak and screw everything up.

The Bigwater should fit just fine. You can mount the 120mm fan radiator ANYWHERE provided you have 120mm fan hole spacing or adaquate room. I am using Kingwin's fully internal LC in mine, and it worlks nicely as well!

I would say fans are just fine unless you are worried about noise.

Fans compared to liquid? HAHA! Only REALLY EXPENSIVE LOUD fans can do something like liquid, plus with a mixture like the ZEN POTION, NO fan cooling can beat it.
