It does have a silent cooler, but it also gets too hot next to my x1 slot which has my tv tuner on it. That causes my tv tuner to overheat and not function correctly. It also causes the CPU fan to spool up and down annoyingly
basically i am just trying to cool down the video card and processor. I don't have much to spend and could care less about what it looks like inside the case. The reason i am looking to watercool it is the fact that there is only 1 PCIE x16 and one PCI x1 slot, and they are right next to each other. My Video card takes up the x16 and my tv card takes up the x1. That leaves very little room between the two, and it adds enough heat to the case to make the cpu fan spool up and down constantly. Other than that I am extremely happy with the setup. All I really need to know i guess is what water blocks will fit on the 3450. I plan to find the p4 cooler on ebay or somewhere else.
