I just finished my water cooling project a few days ago... and I'd like to share few things about it...

First, My system runs a lot cooler than before around 7-10 Celcius, I use ALPHA PAL8045 with 80mm Sunon fan before... I'm running Xp1900 at 146Mhz now at 48-49 degree in full load... It use to be 143Mhz and it's not stable, now it is...

Second, my system is soooooooo damn quietttttt now... I only use 2 80mm generic fans in my computer now... one for the radiator, the other one is in my PSU... I could use a 120mm fan for the radiator, but i don't want to use it... why? cos 80mm is all I need, as long as there's airflow through the radiator, that will be enough...

I use 120mm fan before in 5v setting, my system becomes cooler, about 5 degree cooler... but I like to make my system as quiet as possible...

Well, if you have the money and you don't mind spending it... about $200 for it, you really can't go wrong with water cooling... in the future, you have to think about its maintenance though...

Water cooling is awesome... especially if a very quiet system that you are aftering... and a highly o/c system as well... HEHE...

The maintenence isn't really all that bad if you plan your system so that it's easy to remove the water cooling components.

Congrats on getting yours all set up. It's a fun project, isn't it?

Thanks... yeah, it's quite fun... I'm so glad the results are impresive and no leaks happened, having a silent PC is like a new experience to me... listening to my mp3 is a lot more enjoyable now...
