I´m assuming "All crappy" is in reference to the options in the links I provided. Bad news, but better to know than waste money on something that´s crap.

I´m sure the guys selling the fancy looking decked out in RGBs builds in the local computer center would recommend some expensive solution which includes a full size tower case as being my only option.

Looks like one of those things I´ll just have to accept that I´m going to have to order from out of the country and pay the corresponding shipping and duties if I want something I know will adequately keep things cool.

I´m pretty used to it. Pretty similar for any kind of photography gear; especially if it´s not Canon or Nikon. I shoot Fuji X and it´s practically non-existant here. Anything you can find is going to be 2 to 3 times the normal price.

Thanks again for the suggestions. I´ll do some research on them and see what solution I can put together, but it´s very helpful to know that my options here basically suck as far as getting a  decent cooler.
