Need New WC Solution
 
Budget: $300

Just for cooling the CPU, I also want it to look cool too. ;) What do you all suggest?? Thanks. :D

CPU - Q6600 G0
Modding - Not very skilled! lol So screw-on solution, I was suggested "The Vortex Solution"
Price Range - $300

What CPU??? :)

Makes a huge difference between a dual/quad 65/45.

Case? :)

You know you're not going to manage to squeeze much more out of your CPU with WC?

I really don't care, I like the look of WC, plus I have money to burn. ;)

I have the Antec 900, but I'm buying the Thermaltake Armor, I'm not worried about space. ;)

Willing to mod the case (if so, how much), or would you prefer a mostly screw-on solution?

Once you get those answers together.... edit your original post to include the cpu/case/price range/modding skills and I'm sure the suggestions will start pouring in.... :)

For $300 you should be able to put together a really decent custom WC loop with quality components.

The only things wrong with that build are the lack of fans, and the inclusion of two rads... :)

I'd also suggest a radbox for the easiest installation.
