    I have yet to see any "silent" air cooling solution, let alone one that can keep up in the summer heat.

    Aircon isn't that common where I live, hence my temps can easily reach 60+ during the summer...

    Can I just pop in the windows OEM cd into the new comp and re-activate it as long as im only using it on 1 machine?
    That will work.

    I'm ordering all the parts and a local shop is going to put it together for me.
    I would not risk them screwing something up, just build it yourself, it's easy.

    He's located in Canada, note the link he gave. Water is absolutely not needed as temps dont get high enough to warrant it there.

    ThermalTake Silent Boost, yeah they put off like 20dbA's, but thats not noticeable.

    That's a common misconception.

    I have a friend in Canada and their weather is identical to that of Nebraska here. Winters to 0 degrees and summers to 100 degrees.

    Depends where you are at though, Canada is a big piece of land.
