Look into the swiftech sets, they are good wc'ing systems :) My koolance exos isn't half bad either

god damn..buying water cooling would be more expensive than a new CPU :/

50 bucks at least it seems for a quality part.. may it be water blocks/radiators/pumps..why so expensive?

I'm a huge Koolance EXOS fan.....
Its an unbelievable liquid system.....easy to set up, runs wisper quiet, fantastic cooling capaticity(for a low-flow system), looks good and I've had 0 problems with mine or several I've built into systems.

This company is a local comapany for me. I buy lots of products from them and only had to take back one mobo with a scrambled BIOS. It was a Abit, of course.

Any way they have a cool option for us that want a water cooled system but do not want to do the actual case modding our selves. Check this out.

I am running an Koolance EXOS AI, it's an excellent starter system to introduce people to water cooling :)

DTEK WhiteWater is supposed to be very good. http://www.dtekcustoms.com/.

I bought all my Inovatek gear from http://highspeedpc.com/. Great quiet cooling.

i appreciate al your feedback, but at the moment i am not seeing the advantage of water cooling. of course you can overclock much more..but is it worth a 150-200 dollar water system?

They are also much quiter than fans, and add to the longitevity to your system. I will never ever use fans again after using water.

Just put your PC in a small dorm room freezer and be done with it!

Do a search on watercooling in this and the processor forum, there are at least 3 or 4 good threads with tonnes of info.
