Well if you had the money to buy all of those top of the line components, them maybe you should take a look at the vapochill systems. Hehe. It is truly the ultimate cooling solution.

For the last time, not only are topic titles already in bold, but BBCode doesnt work inside the subject.

I have a lot of good things about the koolance case for cooling of both video cards and cpu's, they also offer a hard drive cooler. I would recommend something along those lines to be sure all your sweet parts stay cool.

I'd say go watercooling (if you have the time and patience) and check out www.lux-design.com They have all the top WC products, Hydor pumps, WW CPU blocks, Black Ice Extreme Radiators, nice 120mm and 80mm fans, 3.5 rheobus to control them. Plus, Oliver, the owner is really nice and helps people out who are new to water cooling.

The only other suggestion I have is to add a 15K RPM SCSI main drive at like 36 GB and a U320 SCSI card. Keep the baracuda as a data drive, but use the 3.2 ms main drive for your OS and Programs. This is expensive, but will outperform any 7200 RPM 9.8 ms seek drive.
