Water cooling FTW! PA120.3, DTek blocks for CPU and GPU, Swiftech MCP 655 pump. GPU is overclocked and water cooled in the same loop.

Geez, 18c. Do you remember what the E6700 @ 3.2 ran at with the stock cooler? I just installed a ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 on my E8400 @ 3.456GHz and it brought the idle temps from 45c to 41c and load (mirror's edge+wine) from 57c to 48c. Maybe Rev 2 isn't as good as the original. 4-9c is fine with me anyway..

After using high end air vs low end (all in one) water cooling, my vote would be for the Hydro. With water your temps drop to ambient after loading almost immediately. In changing from an all in one like this to a complete high end custom I really only dropped a few degrees more. Once you go water you will get better cooling, faster drop back to ambient, etc. Its just a better cooling solution overall.
