Not the best you can get for that price, you can find cheaper and better ones. Try Tigerdirect or Newegg. They have great deals sometimes.

Pretty good, considering the price tag. Most water cooling systems I've seen in that price range are pure trash.

If you're running stock speeds; then the Intel and AMD Stock Coolers that ship with the units at the moment are perfectly ample :3

It confuses me as to why people overclock processors and then spend more on cooling for them, rather than just spending the money on a better processor. Am I missing something?

My Desktop just has the case open with a desk fan blowing in. :cer_nod: This is the same desktop I usually attempt to fix with a hammer, mind you.

If I had the money, I'd get the highest clocked Core 2 Duo I could find, get some water cooling, then overclock it. A "better processor" would have more cores, and a lot of games still can't utilize more than two cores efficiently.

Overclocking doesn't just increase the processor speed; often you'll bring up the memory speed also; or the FSB/HTT bus speed which leads to an overall faster system~
