Well the stock thermaltake one is pretty weak so I'm guessing it would make a big difference. What size tubing dose the thermaltake use? I would suggest anything from Danger Den

I think the thermal take water cooler only uses 3/8" tubing. You should also upgrade to 1/2" then you would see an even greater performance boost.

I agree, it will help to get one but surely it isnt something you need, not as people like me have no money.
