    The TJ11... it costs 600 dollars in webstores outside of the country, but frozencpu.com say shipping it would cost 206 dollars on top of that. (I thought I'd just look given the ridiculous price.)

    Ah yes. I linked that one a few months ago, when I was still interested in watercooling. I've now shunned that idea, on the grounds of I wanted it just because. It's not for me, since I want my rig to be quiet, and despite how quiet you can get with lots of fans running in <600rpm, it will still sip through.
    So I have something else planned. :3 (Also, I wouldn't want to miss out the ability to look at my pretty NH-D14 [or the Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro 7 rev 2 I'll likely go back to, because its less noisy, cools very decently and won't brush against my Xonar DX] either. Air is my forte.)

    EDIT - my computer isn't very quiet at this time. I accidently damaged a screw on a fan, and what do you now. The fan in question is now making whirring noises. And the GTs aren't very quiet at all if not <800rpm

    you need 15mm spacing between both wholes to fit a 240mm radiator. I would buy a NH-D14, the performance is about the same, it's cheaper and you don't need to replace the fans for silence/performance like the H100 because the D14 already has amazing fans. That makes it even cheaper.. Not sure if it fits the define mini but I wouldnt be suprised. It fits alot of cases!

    Mine wasn't either a month ago, I had a lemon 140mm Noctua fan in there and the bearings didn't last very long. ended up starting to make weird pulsing wum sounds. :|

    I would love a picture as proof. Like, hold a paper in next to the computer stating your name here on mmo-champ and the date.

    What on earth you use that for is anyone's guess. I can't imagine the Quadro architecture is particularly efficient at rendering games.

    All that and no solid state drives too??

    That doesn't really answer his question, though.

    The NH-D14 won't fit into a Define Mini, it's far too big. I was going to see if I could get a Frio off my friend since he isn't using it, but I don't think it will fit either. I need to do some measuring as those kinds of coolers use 120mm fans but generally protrude an additional 10-20mm on top. I will probably just go for the H80 since it will fit properly, alternatively the NH-C12P would work but I am not a big fan of that kind of cooler for overclocking when it comes to noise and heat generation.
