    Water cooling is the best, but you have to watch what you're doing. It's easy to set up, but i advise you set it up out your case and test it for 24 hours and watch for leaks b4 u install it.

    You can get the exos here:http://www.xoxide.com/watcoolkit.html

    Pros: Xcellent cooling and silence

    Cons: Water does'nt mix well with electronic parts (so be careful!)

    Use distilled water then even if it leaks you won't have to have another feneral since it does not conduct electricity like regular water.
