    You've already answered your own question; water cools better so will be better for an overclocked system. The question you really need to ask is what you are willing to do to your system. I've been using water for some time now and an totally happy with the results. Others do not have the courage to take this leap. It depends on you and your abilities.

    This is on air. Works stable, I haven't had one lock-up, error or hang while under these settings. Been running for 3 months now. : )

    Yeah and my 2.4C on P4P800 Deluxe has been running @ 3.5GHz on air for well over 12 months though I've strangled the CPU less by using PC3500 but the question is, "Whats better for OCing, water or air?", and I bet that if I had liquid cooling then I'd likely get a better overclock (some PC4000 or faster memory would likely help as well) plus it would probably be a bit quieter as well.

    That's sick, a 1.1GHz OC.

    It is kind of a two way answer and personal preference thing.
    I wouldn't be able to tell you which is best.

    air is trustable if left more or less unchecked, but water allows for muchbetter audio and temperature enviroment
