I was debating about going into water cooling and picking up a Swiftech kit. But that may have to wait till the new year.

I'm on the Darkside by switching over to Intel. Watercooling will just make me stronger in the force they call overclocking. Hell my fans are red LED and my case is black. If I go watercooling I'm going to use red fluid to make Project Darkside complete.

I'm heard good things about the Swiftech kits, but if I can piece out a kit for cheaper I'll do it but some how I doubt I will.

Great overclocking is very dependant on good cooling, and while it may not be entirely justifiable on a dollar-per-megahertz basis, anyone using water would tell you to go for it without hesitation

Just wondering, if I buy something from ncix, it will arrive on my house right?

1. What's that heavy-duty-box for?
2. When the package arrives, will I have to sign anything from package delievery guy?
3. Will I have to pay any extra fee for delivery, etc.
4. If I use Paypal I have to pay transaction fee no?

=O I know its WAY off topic but I just want to know before I start making lists for future references
