That is just beast. Pure epicness. I love it Grant. You make me want to do liquid on my next build. Even though I'm not a die hard gamer or a big OC'er. Haha.

The finished product is fun, and you know your rig is always running cool. And it's not nearly as risky as everyone sees it. The liquid in both loops (TFC F1) is completely non-conductive. It will accumulate some conductivity overtime, but is pretty well an insulator until after 6 months.

The major, major downside is cost. You can ask Cabbs, Foothead, anyone. You simply can't get a real good performance loop for less than 400. By performance, I mean a quality block, pump, res, and rad, with good tubing, at least a liter of liquid, and fittings.

I'll go back and add up all the numbers to give you an idea of what all I've spent on liquid cooling.

Just shy of 900 dollars. :|

Price vs. practicality, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense. I regret it, but at the same time I don't.

...and that is why I will always stick with air cooling.

Lol you can do it for much cheaper than that. I'd say $300 for a good budget loop.

True. Still way too expensive to justify in my opinion.

Resale value, tbh. I know plenty of people that would gladly drop 2500+ for my rig.

rip the entire cooling loop out and put it in your pc. That is how water cooled PCs started. I hear the heater cores are actually better than most wc radiators.
