My sincere advice for you is to forget the thermaltake stuff and just go for hi-end air-cooling solution.. From my personal experience, Thermaltake water-cooling solution is just as good as hi-end air-cooling stuff..

Plus, if you want to use waterblock for northbridge and south bridge, you will need an excellent pump as you will deal with a lot of pressure drop due to longer water-loop and more restrictive corners..

If you want to play with water-cooling I advice you to get the Swiftech stuff but that comes with expensive price and hassle-installation..

There are two main danger in water-cooling system

1. water-leaking problem
2. pump failure..

I would agree. Unless you plan on doing some immense overclocking, air cooling (good case/fans) will do the job as well if not better than low end water cooling. It might be more cost efficient to get a new case for that cost that has good air flow and healthy amount of fans.

The case I use is the Antec P182. This may not work if you don't have an Antec power supply (fitting/wiring issues) but the air flow is top notch and even on the lowest setting I've never had overheating problems.

I'd say only go watercooling if you have the money to go all out and if you really, really need it.
