Thanks for the advice. I would agree that air cooling is probably sufficient for my cpu. It is really limited more by my cheap matx motherboard with limited OC options than temps. Liquid cooling almost doesn't seem worth it on temps alone for 45nm processors.

My Sapphire 1gb 4870 is quite loud under load, and I see tangible gains by overclocking it. I may just go for the gpu for now since a single 120.1 rad should handle it fine. My PCB apparently is non-reference so I can use most full coverage blocks. I be stuck using VRM/VRAM heat sinks, unless I can trade my card for a reference.
