I'm planning on doing water cooling in the near future. Only parts I'm wanted cooled is CPU and possible GPU. And I have little knowledge on water cooling terms and setups. So the question is... Is H60 worth ~$80? Will I see a big drop in temp? ATM on air cooling and stock speed, I idle at ~40c and high ~55c. I've OC the chip before to 3.6Ghz with decent temp. I would like to push at least 4Ghz. So would the H60 allow me to do that?

If all your looking after is CPU cooling, I say stick to your S1283 unless you decide you definitely want to add in the GPU.

Can always go cheaper and grab a pair of (better?) fans for the 1283 and see how much love that gives you;)

well I was thinking, since those are already rated at 31+ dBA why not look for a pair of 100CFM fans at say 35 dBA? I'm looking for something as a reference.

Maybe these? Scythe SY1225SL12SH 120mm "Slipstream" Case Fan Unless LEDs are a must.

Ah dont let Trick scare you. I've been running water for about 2 yrs and never had a problem.
My system is about as easy to maintain as a fan cooler. I use a filter pad I made myself and pull it out once a month to run it under water to rid the dust....As for adding water to my loop.. Never even needed a top up... its a sealed unit..

As for the H60. Beware they may work but in time its going to get loud from the system getting air into it.
