Actually I was looking at the PURE, but it's performance wasn't as good as a water-cooling set up should be. Most reviews I've read said that the pump was weak, and it's not expandable, should I decide later I'd like to watercool my single video card. However, they did say it was quiet, but I'm wondering if it's quieter-than-8-case-fans quiet or SPCR quiet. I could swap the fan for a Nexus or something, but that would only degrade cooling capability, and I can't mount two in a push-pull config.
I've also looked into the the older Emliminator models only available refurbished or used. They're the performance I'm looking for, but I'm wondering at what cost to noise it'll be.
Also, it might sound dumb, but I hate CoolIT coolers simply for that large plate that blocks the whole view. I love looking inside of my PC and looking at it. I still haven't figured out what's so damn intriguing about it, but I love looking at the inside of computers. I spend my free time looking at the gallery sections of places like Xtreme Systems and HardOCP
I suppose the CoolIT coolers are options, but those will be one of my last resorts in liquid cooling.
