If you want to lower the noise level and keep the same performance, h2o is the way to go. If its your first, I suggest a closed loop system that is prebuilt. Thermaltake as some nice ones that are cheap too.
So the only real advantage of going liquid cooled in this rig is low noise? Temp won't really change?
Would a custom built liquid cooler make much of a difference in temp, compared to one of the closed loop systems? for that matter would either liquid options make any significant
difference in temps?
