Oh, he'll have a nice setup, and I've told him so a couple of times. Little bit too extreme for me right now. I don't like the idea of coating your motherboard in silicone to keep moisture out and risking condensation on your CPU and stuff like that. Definitely more risky than going H20, but if he can pull it off and have it stable for long-term use, more power to 'im! I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

I figured I'd go with the best WC'ng parts I could find and be happy with that. My Iwaki just got here yesterday. Since I went air last round this will be a huge leap forward for me, anyway.

Another cool thread would be "in the works." Like systems we're in the process of building in preparing for G80.

So who know what about the new hybrid water/fan cooler or the noted, "water cooling for overclocking?"

Remember this picture, to bad, doesn't look like 1/2 fittings:

All I want to know is if it'll somehow run on XP or if they (nVidia) are gonna bend us over with "little upgrade choice", like they did with AGP -> PCIe.

Yes, I know that the industry pushes forward... but I don't jump on "everything" right away... and as far as Vista goes... I may never. MS can take their ridiculous EULA, intrusive spyware, and unecessary bloat... and shove it.

Won't it have to run on XP since Vista won't even be available when the 8800 is released?
