Okay, I line in connecticut which means varying temperatures(-10 in winter and 90+ in sunmmer) Since I built my rig in the winter, I found it ran VERY cool. But just recently I bought Empire At War and that game can be stressful on my comp. Starting yesterday, I could only keep it on for 2-3 hours at a time, and then let it cool for 2 hours. So I am thinking of getting a water cooling system, but I don't have much money. Could you guys recommend one? Specs: Sempron 2400 Fx 5500 And 2 fans.
what temps are you getting? I would recommend the thermaltake big typhoon as an alternative to watercooling
what is your skill level in electronics and or making beer bongs? for liquid cooling if you have made a nice beer bong and in stalled your own mother board than yuo can isntall a liquid cooling system but some temp read outs of your rig would be nice.
Dang, I know I was getting 40c in the winter, I'll check the temp sometime. But it is so hot that i is crashing sometimes.
go for high quality thermal paste and a good aircooler, watercooling is most likely overkill
Liquid cooling is only for the Uber-Nerd that wants to look cool!
Just get a case with ample fan room and cooling capabilities!

i have a server case with 8 fans in it, keeps everything cool and is an alternative to water cooling
if it is a server like that I would use watercooling, what are its specs?
