    Hello everyone...

    I am looking to either upgrade my case to water cooling, or to just buy a new one.

    If i were to buy a new one it would HAVE to be through NewEgg... and under $400.

    This is the case i currently have. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

    If it is suggested to stick with my case... can someone tell me EVERYTHING i would need to buy in that case? Because i read some things on water cooling, but i'm still a complete noob... If you need more information just ask, i respond quickly.

    Any guidance will be very much appreciated.

    Note: I also prefer to buy a pre-done liquid cooling system... i don't trust myself to mess up and leak on my board.

    My desire is to just upgrade, nothing is getting hot, my system is cooled fine. But i just want the liquid cooling for future proof, just an upgrade i had in mind to do. I have a 7870 video card.

    If problems do occur with the liquid cooling i more than likely would be able to repair it... the install is what scares me... But i simply just want it.

    I would prefer not to add to my current case, since it has taken some damage, and i lost some screws here and there. But i like the size, i don't wanna go bigger...is there bigger? lol? anyways.. size is fine where its at.

    I guess.... CPU and video card would be the biggest things i want done, but if i have to install 4 seperate components just for one... i wanna do it all, ya know??

    1) that link doesn't work, so I can't see the case
    2) if you aren't having cooling issues, then upgrading is a waste of money.
    3) there is always a chance of leaking, even with a prebuilt system. hardware fails, it's a fact of life.
    4) most kits include a single heatsink for just the cpu
    5) they can also create more noise and/or heat (outside the case). You are replacing the fans on the cpu/gpu with larger fans on the radiator to keep the liquid cool
