More water cooling fun

I took apart my thermaltake aquaris iii today, installing some dynamat on the walls of the case and cleaning the tubes. Just unbinding the water tubes from the mess on the inside has improved water flow. 26.7*C on a 3k AMD64. I'm trying to figure out what water block to get for my 6600GT when it gets here, cant have fans in my pc!

I joke to friends that I have $2,000 dollars sitting on my desk... Unfortunatly thats about right. Those fucking memory modules were $300 alone, the water cooler was $230 shipped. Fanless power supply was $150, case was $100, hard drive was $170, it racks up fast.

Stock speed and voltage, right now the cpu is decently idle ( winamp, firefox, putty, ms term serv and vpn connection ), 26.9*C, water temp is 24.5*C. Did I mention no noise?

Looks nice. Water Cooling might be my next project. My buddy I do online gaming with has a friend that is a saleman for AMD in Austin. He just shipped him an Athlon 3800 939 for $100. He thinks he might be able to get us FX-53's or 55's next since the FX-57 and new cores are coming out soon. I am keeping my fingers crossed.
