    I think that the Corsair, NZXT Kraken or some other closed loop system would be the best type to use over this rather dated solution.
    These CoolerMasters sure are pretty though, and who knows? With the temps. of the latest cpu’s getting less and less each generation, the closed loop systems could one day become overkill and the V8 GTS may end up being a perfect solution. Just not today.
    Then again, there’s nothing like the clearance between the waterblocks of a closed loop system and the memory modules compared to something like the V8’s.
