    I live in the desert, "Las Vegas" to be precise. In the summer the average temperature is 110-115F and 90F in the shade(thats 43-47C and 32C in the shade).

    Right now I'm using an Xigmatek HDT S1283, and its the best air cooler I've ever had.

    I'm open to Water cooling suggestions and aircooler suggestions. I had a crappy WCing kit at one point but my Xig beat it.

    I mostly just want to know if there is any cooling solution that is better than what I have right now.

    I will disappoint you , the totally best from the medium cooler on air, is about 5C deference.

    Is this what you looking for ?

    Water ... a true productive water cooling , will help but not as a magic solution, and its very costly , and hard to maintenance .

    One simple mistake , can cause damage.

    Do you like to spent most of your time looking for trapped air bubbles ?

    Go for the Coolermaster V8. I live with similar temps, only more humid. 32 in the shade aint too bad. Invest in greater airflow for your case and you should be fine.

    You can try TEC cooling from CoolIt. They are a bit pricey but everything comes pre-assembled. Ah Vegas, my last trip there last July, it was 117 F midnight, yikes!

    Thanks for the replys guys. TEC cooling is a bit extreme I think though.

    I'll look at the CM V8 thanks.
