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.

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!
