Best Cooling Solution

I was hoping to slightly over-clock my system, so I need something that will keep my cpu cool enough, but I also don’t want to hear a jet landing in my computer room every time I boot up. I was planning on building a 2.8Ghz P4 800FSB/512k on an Asus P4P800 Deluxe motherboard with 512MB(2x256MB) Corsair Twinx PC3200 dual-channel memory and a Radeon 9700Pro 128MB video card. I was hoping to use all of THG's guides to help me boost this system up to a generous 3.0-3.1Ghz system, but am unsure of how to cool everything. All of the articles on cooling units that I searched for and found seem to be out-dated or hardly very comparative. I am hoping not to have to spend more than $100 on a cooling system, so I am thinking that liquid-based cooling units are out of question. I have not seen any real reviews of the Thermaltake Subzero4g cooling system, but it sounds awfully tempting.
Any help would be appreciated.

  1. Actually the Thermaltake's Peltier product is crap, get the Swiftech MCX-4000T if you're into Peltiers, but you'll need a powerful fan, like a 92mm tornado, however it'll handle up to load of 100watt of heat.
