I'm very interested in the idea of Watercooling, mainly coz of the insane temps during aussie summer. I'm a bit apprehensive though, because water + electronics generally don't mix. Any decent performing Watercooling setups out there which are good for noobs like me?

there are cooling liquids that can spill and not damage your electronics. water cooling isn't as hard as it seems, my very first computer that i built, i put water cooling in.... it was a pain in the ass i guess but nothing too hard.

It's just so damn annoying that i have to wait 6 months to overclock. Temps are currently:

CPU - 51c
MB - 61c
GPU - 77c

And that's not under load

That's just too high. What cooler you have now?

I would have to agree with this, however it does take quite a bit of work and studying before you buy. It took me about 2 months reading and asking questions all together - but I work 40hr/week and go to school as well.

I am running my very first water rig right now and I love it

I hate phase and TEC, it's too messy of an option more so if you sell the parts at a later date.

Well, if experience is anything, I found that phase was as easy, if not easier, than installing a watercooling loop for the CPU. I am not sure what you mean about "messy".

How do you clear out the socket of thermal paste?

Hey Jakup step up your board to the EVGA H2O nForce 680i
