Yes like the cow with the slimy big tong said (im' just joking bra),and u never metionned the mobo u wanna throw at,or even the rest of the specs,for 1366 it's DEAD! Intel stopped producing those CPUs,so u'll only find used ones (which i extremly don't recommend to buy)
I think it's time for a bigger change now :)
And please guys don't post on the irrelevant forum,there's the upgrades forum,to have some ideas from more "expert" PPL :)

I have heard of two instances of them developing a leak. One guy got lucky and caught it in time before it ruined his system. The tank leaked onto his hard drives.

1366 is far from dead. 1366 still performs better than 1155 and if you buy the parts used still makes for a very viable system.

I think ur wrong at that point,1155 perfom just fine in gaming and a benchmark 2600k vs 990x proves that this 1366 can't beat the 2600k at anything but video encoding
And it's dead becoz X79 and 2011 is now in TOWN! even if these CPUs r still here,no one would buy them for the same price as a brand new CPU!
Anyways tell us your budget and we might as well help u picking a nice 1366 CPU (it's going to be hard to find a new one)

My point is, if you are going to water cool select your componets and build it yourself. Select a good case that has a quality build, Test it thoroughly and ensure there are no leaks. The satisfaction is far greater. And yes 1366 is dead, long live 2011 (or at least until Intel wants to change again).
