For prebuilt systems I would recommend a Koolance PC5-1326BK but there are to many large cases that can be watercooled the Coolmaster cosmos is popular and any e-atx Lian-Li case is a pretty safe bet I am currently tring to figure out if I want a Lian Li X2000 or a MM U2-UFO.....Cases are hard...its that balance of look VS function

I didn't think of that either, but I was thinking that i'd prefer to scrounge and collect my own parts so that I could get a better hang of it.

And if you look around the buy and sell on here you'd be surprised at how much stuff people have laying around they might be willing to sell.

Especially if you put up a WTB thread. Apollo4g for example has a d-tek block for sale for $45 and thats a good deal.

Yeah I'll check all that out. I'm thinking new case/mobo, and WC parts and a video card swap will keep me happy for now hehe

I'm an audio engineer, I don't make a lot of money - I just don't have any bills to speak of ahahahaha.

Plus sometimes when I feel like doing a build I'll just make a computer and then sell it on craigslist for a couple hundred dollars profit or sell my old one or something.

You know I never thought of that either...hmm Damn RMA policies however whenever I did a build for a customer if there was issues it was almost always the pump and given our location it was always easier to just put in a better pump anyway.
