Wow, then those units I linked to are grossly over-priced if what you are saying is true. I'm thinking I'll just stick with my Thermaltake BigTyphoon 120. Such a shame, that Ultra Chill looks super-cool.

for what you were going to spend on that TEC cooler you could get a pretty decent water cooling setup going

True enough. I'm just scared of the whole water and electricity thing. See, I'm lazy and I want a rig that is as close to maintenance free as possible. Last I read up on water cooling it isn't quite maintenance-free. Then again, things have probably changed since then.

Is there any decent water cooling solution that requires little to no maintenance once it is installed?

if properly set up you may have to add some fluid to the res every 6-12 months... its pretty maintenance free after you get it set up.

Tiki I'm so sorry to hear that, even more so since my CoolIT Freezone was delivered today.
I decided to buy one based on yours very positive experince with the first Freezone you had and also on many great reviews I was able to Google.
I unpacked it today and did see some bubbles in the line but I believe that will clear after the pump starts, that is if it will start
Anyway I will install it tomorrow and hope to see it run great like the DiscipleDOC Freezone does.

Well that isn't nearly as bad as I remember reading about.

Hmm...

What about condensation? How big a problem is that with water cooling?

no problem at all. You won't be getting under ambient temps with water so you don't have to worry about condensation unless you are using some sort of chilled water refrigeration thing

Okay. So, for my next top-of-the line build I'll probably go with a water cooling setup. I'm gonna' go with this case:

Though I aim to customize the window and the paint job. It's gonna' look trick!

Thanks for your input, and I apologize for hi-jacking your thread Tiki.

I really think that your unit will be fine and all will work well. I simply think there is an issue between the cord that connects to the CPU fan pins and the pump. I am surprised more than anything that this happened. I still even now consider the CoolIT Systems Freezone a great product.

i really recommend you to buy an air cooled heatsink like thermalright ultra 120+ or tuniq tower 120,they are very efficient,and the components do not burn if there is a failure (a water cooling problem)
