Default watercooling

ive been looking at this watercooling kit http://www.anitec.ca/?mode=product_d...d=5035&mcid=17 and if i bought it i would add a gpu block what i need to know is if i bought it would it make a significant difference from the zalman fans i have now? also i have this case http://www.anitec.ca/?mode=product_d...d=1297&mcid=13 which is kinda small so would u suggest a bigger case to put this in or will the one i have now be fine?

Dude, unless you have the money and you want to go through the dangerous process of water cooling your cpu (if you're a noob, I do not recommend it)? Zalman fans are very nice... but, yes, I have to admit, water cooling is amazing. Phase change is better but $$$$$. One water block is like around $1000. Anyways, unless you overclock, and I see that you do, I would recommend the air cooling. But, since you do oc, water cooling is the only way to cool, stable, and fast components. The kit is very nice, although I suggest you go through ww.frozencpu.com and check out all their stuff. They have some nice stuff there. There are some cases that actually have a water cooling spot built in, like the ones in frozencpu.... yeah....

im not exactly a noob, i know how to build comps and how they all work so i could put a watercooling kit in quite easily, i would like to go through frozencpu.com but getting all that stuff in canada is quite difficult cause i cant order from the US
