    Perhaps you should add some more information.. do you want a cooler that does CPU? Video card? The entire system?
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

    Having never owned one I can't say much but a friend of mine has one of the Antec Kühler series CPU coolers and likes it.

    I have one of these and it works as advertised. Fairly easy to install check out the youtube videos on it.

    As a farm girl my instant reaction is - water + computer = fail (BIG)
    But I am always happy to learn new stuff.
    My desktop replacement gamer (MSI GT680) has heat issues - I went to the local hospice sale and bought one of those invalid bed tray things. It lives on that and never overheats, is easily moved and easy to use when reclining ;}

    Are you after maximum cooling for an overclock or just want quiet cooling? Helps to know the goals.
    Antec and Corsair make similar closed loop systems (some models use the same parts) and both are good, any of the single fan 12cm radiators are better than stock cooling and fairly quiet. They only perform at about the level of air coolers that cost half as much though. The large dual fan models are where the cooling gets serious.

    this one http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/comp...p?partid=18590 just hits $199 but is not quite as good as the H100i according to reviews
    or this one http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/comp...p?partid=18297 is cheaper, smaller (but deeper) and is close to the same performance as well

    Here's an interesting review of 4 models http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...q320,3380.html, they conclude the Noctua NH-D14 air cooler is better value than any of them......
