Well, yeah, but that's the world of PC modding, isn't it? Watercooling's not exactly a walk in the park, either, but people do it for the results that you get.

And a 7-9C drop in processor temps is worth an extra 25-30$ for me and a half hour to take a motherboard out of a case and put it back in. I've seen the Tuniq sell as cheap as 49$, which isn't that bad at all.

I mean, really.. what is 25-30$ extra when you've already spent 1100$ on graphics cards and $1000 on a processor, anyway?
