ohhhh sneaky lol, i still think i would get caught on that lol!!

I have always said, it is easier to beg for forgiveness, then to ask for permission

But that has back fired on me a couple times lol (never come home with a new 2009 Mustang Conv, and go "honey look what i just bought!!!" ... that ended badly)

Hahahaha, I'm about to put myself through the same situation. I'm going to get that Q9550 myself!

Anyways, you'll have to ask other people about the H2O part cause I am clueless when it comes to that..... but you have quite a few bucks to play with so I don't think that will be an issue!

+1 Prof.Dr.Silver, Realy good build with realy great part, The only thing I change is to go to G.skill, Mushkin or Corsair memory over OCZ, better quality and compatibility. With that build you are ready to run every single game a ultra high. If I can with a 4870 a GTX 275 will be abble to do as well.

Yeah, you can basically pick any manufacturer over OCZ, I just picked it because it was the first one I saw.... it's decent and I've had very little issues with OCZ. I picked nVidia over AMD/ATI due to it's rendering/CUDA skills :)

So for watercooling what are you looking to cool, CPU, CPU+ GPU, maybe the chipsets as well? NCIX is a good place to order from. Also AFAIK that case doesn't have spots for internal rads (I could be wrong) but you may want to consider that or using a radbox.

Your right, i have to mount the rad externally, i just figured i didnt have to drop a couple hundrend bux on a new case, when this one should work fine.

I would like to go the full CPU and GPU. i am not planning (keyword here) on OC'ing this machine
