Rig will be used mostly for internet use, and video editing and capture.

if it matters, the planned rig will be using an H80 for cooling, in a silverstone FT02 case.
If you haven't purchased the H 80 yet,you should take a look at the Antec series of liquid coolers. The H20 620 is much much more quiet than the H 80 and cools as good or better. I've tried the H 80 and H 100,and compared them to the h20 620 and 920 with way better temps and super quiet.
