cooling solutions

sorry for the newbish post everyone, but im about to become the owner of an e8500, and i really like to speed it up a bit. was initially thinking i would water cool the thing, but i was wondering how big of a difference it would make between water and air. also, any specific type of cooler you would recommend (water or air), would be greatly appreciated. thanks all.

Asus Arctic Square

The Asus Arctic Square is an excelent fan cooler & it's inexpensive, low noise & can connect to your Motherboard using a 4-pin fan connector. The fan supports automatic PWM controlling, so no external switches & other junk are neede, since this cooler is able to adjust the fan speeds itself & it's very silent & cools like a bomb.
