True 120 x on my qx9650

Just upgraded to i7 950, GB-x58a-UD5, 6G kingston hyper X. Now i'm not sure what cooler i should try for this setup. Wanted to go the Theralright Silver Arrow but hyper X ram causes clearance issues. Now i'm thinking maybe a Corsair H70 all in one water cooling setup. I just hope it wont be too loud!

the h70 isnt that great, especially for the price. better off saving for real watercooling imo. otherwise get a prolimtech megahalems.

hows the Swiftech H20-220 Apex Ultima XT Liquid Cooling Kit is that any good? (as a trial before going full water cooling?) (im doing the venomous X black or XT for now with my new rig then upgrade later to water kit or try this.

that kit is extremely good the only thing that would improve a kit like that is a better radiator. it is full watercooling :P very good value for money too!
