    Water? Vapor? Something else?

    W/ water, u have lots of places for leaks. W/ phase, yes there's chances of leaks ( from condensation ) but not lots of tubing to deal w/. I would personally go w/ phase. I like mine and I'm sure u will also, plus, you will always wonder "what if". prom's are no longer made. company is...

    at 220mhz now...stupid board wont go farther...need a volt mod

    A couple days ago, I was ready to sling mine across the yard. I couldn't even get 205 ( NF7 2.0 ) But, i tightened timings on ram and was able to get 225 ( haven't tested further ). Seems my board likes tighter timings. W/ 205 they were very loose, even w/ a lil more juice still wouldn't POST.

    Vapochill - stop me before it's too late :P

    I was trying to decided on Vapo vs. Mach. I liked the looks and everything about the Vapo but one thing. The way the compressor runs off of the p.s. Everything is off the p.s. Not saying thats a bad thing, but everythings sorta "integrated" together. For that reason I went w/ a mach. It's...

    Volcano 7+?

    It's big! Just make sure you've got plenty of room for it and you have your MB mounted securely ( it's heavy ). It's also very loud!!! On high, I can hear about 2 rooms away. I run on Low and it does the job ( low:load 50, low;idle 46) I don't run on high way too loud for me.

    Which Bios for Abit NF7-S (for ocing & stability)

    You might have just got a board that doesn't like high FSB. If you read around it's not uncommon for the NF7's. But, if you want to try just search around on the internet for "tictac"'s bios. Don't have the link but search around and he's got several you can try.

    BF1942 single player?

    It's alright in single player. I'm not able to have any high speed internet and no one around here has ever heard of a Lan party. If you're wanting to buy a good single player game, go buy Call of Duty instead.

    good memory for Ocing?

    Main goal is to raise FSB then, raise multi as high as you can. Look at what you're saying and you will see. Ex. 250fsb x 10multi = 2500. Thats 2.5 right there!!! You're moving on up.

    Clean blocks before install?

    I recently bought a used cpu and vga water block. The cpu block looks fine, slight swirls ( normal from what I've seen). But, the vga has finger prints and looks pretty dirty. My ? is, what do I need to do before I install them? Just clean w/ some nail polish remover or....?
