    Watercooling has always made me nervous. Nice rig though.

    Yeaaaah.....
    AMD always seems to be more $$$ than Intel, and usually behind the curve too, but I still prefer them over Intel.

    metal gecko, AMD is now cheaper than intel, by like... alot. especially for a 6 core. they are around 200, where i7 CPU's are still like 300 plus for the better ones.

    but yea, i like water cooling, i may look into it, but for now i'm happy with air, and i got better temps with my air cooler than the water cooler i tried.
