Frankly, in the age of Sandy Bridge .... it's real hard for me to make a case for water cooling......unless ya thinking about tri or quad SLI.

Quote:
It's almost ironic that [air] coolers like the Thermalright Silver Arrow] are becoming available just as processors transition to designs that may ultimately render them unnecessary; even overclocked to 5GHz, an Intel Sandy Bridge 2600K doesn't need anywhere near this level of cooling.


With the freed up budget, I'd look at these.......

Case - $ 270 - Thermaltake Level 10 GT Snow http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Case Fan - $ 12 - Thermaltake Blue120 mm http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

These twin GFX cards will toast that 580 by about 40% for a lot less money ..... adding the 2nd 580 only beats them by 10%

GFX - $ 230 - Asus GTX 560 900Mhz http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
GFX - $ 230 - Asus GTX 560 900Mhz Same

Storage upgrades

HD - $ 240 - Seagate Barracuda XT 2TB 64MB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
SSD - $ 279 - Mushkin Chronos Deluxe http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Cooler - incl w/ MoBo - Phanteks PH-TC14PE Cooler http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
TIM - $ 5 - Shin Etsu http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
