Liquid Cooling Kits Worth It?

    Okay, I am building my new computer, and I have always heard that liquid
    cooling is the way to go if you can afford it. I can afford it, well that is
    I will force myself to if it truly is the better choice. But in my research
    of cooling kits, they are reporting only marginally better temperature
    reductions then traditional heatsink and fans. So my question is, am I
    better to get a liquid cooling kit for my CPU or am I better to get a good
    fan/heatsink combo and save the $100+ ??

    those liquid cooling systems are for overclockers...
    If you use your cpu at its rated speed then you dont need liquid cooling.
