hello. Well im looking for a good liquid cooling system iv seen sum good one's but i don't know if thay work good on a amd phenom II 955 oc to 4.0ghz.
My air cooler just cant do it any more my air cooler is big so i know that getting any biger will pout lots of stress on my mobo.
I have sum links to sum liquid cooling systems so if you don't mind taking a look at them and giving your opinion on them will be grate.

I'd suggest a H70 over a H60.

For less than $100, I'd say stick to air cooling. Save up another $30 and get the XSPC Rasa kit instead if you really want watercooling. It will outperform the H50/60/70 hands down.

Info in my signature on watercooling...I'd recommend reading up a lot.

Which ones have you seen...considering your budget and the ones mentioned thus far, I'd have to disagree with your statement.

You posted the Swiftech Edge kit, which is some pretty good components put together into a kit. The XSPC Rasa radiator is the same size as that one, unless you get the RS360 which is the 3x120mm radiator.

I guess I am not sure what your exact question is...

If you want to spend the money on a H50/60/70, go ahead, but they really only perform as well as good air coolers costing less money.

I offered the Rasa as an alternative to the H70, which usually runs about $100. For $130, the Rasa performs far better. For far less money than the H70, the 212+ performs very, very well.

Your choice.

With the XSPC Rasa RS360 (750, the one with the 3x120 rad) you could run a CPU+GPU in that loop with some decent fans.

The Swiftech Edge kit has a better pump, but is more expensive.

the 3x120mm rad is big and i dont think ill need that big but sum time's bigger is better.
well y i wont a new liquid cooling system is to make my cpu cooler the it is. It run about 50c to 55c max out it's about 60c and i don't like that at all.

Cuz my north bridge cooler get's about 40c to 50c and i cant get a good fan on it cuz my heat sink is in the way so ther is a good excuse for a liquid cooling system

and im all so getting a bigger case for new stuff that i mite get in the future. and thank you all for your help

I run two 3x120 radiators on my watercooling loop...it's a little more than I need, but for the price, the rads were a good deal.

I assume your CPU is the Phenom II you have listed in your config...I would also think you'd get better temps with watercooling, but have you also considered other air coolers? I don't know what case you have, so I can't tell for sure what would fit since some are rather large. 60C seems rather warm for that chip, but I am an Intel CPU guy, so I'm not as familiar with AMD's.

As for your NB; they are designed to run hot...so that is fairly normal.

Where are you from? Depending on ambient temps year round, you will want one with space as well as good airflow. Also, what is your overall budget?

For that budget, you could build a pretty decent loop, but considering you are looking into a new case as well, the Rasa + case is a good place to start.
