Default PC watercooling is the best

Picked up this Corsair water cooling kit for $42.00 marked down from $199.95. All I can say is wow. My PC is nearly silent now and at least 10C cooler than before. Still afraid to have all that water running through the guts of my system but so far so good.

iv been doing water cooling for a LONG time now, i startedd it back when i was working for a PLace called FrozenCPU.com

I have water cooled 3 PC'* ranging fromaa $100 system to 300+ cooling system, from all that iv done / tryed the best thing to get for a water cooling sstem is a Koollance Kit or make your own with Swift Tech of Danger Den parts.

My one PC that is maid up of diffrent parts it is a AMD Barton 2500 (1.8Ghz) overclocked to 2.4 Ghz (600Mhz overclocked) its been running like that for 3 years now, never crashes! runs about 32C idle and about 38C nderload (gamming)

thats why you do water cooling, memory still easy to change....

Thermalright XP120 has a 120mm fan on it

Thats a damn good price for the system. I always stick with air though because the thought of a potential leak makes me nervous. Mayby the tower would get knocked over, ect.
