Default I'm watercooled... But is there a way to watercool the PSU?

I just installed my watercooling system today and works great. The system is much much quieter. The only thing making noise now is the PSU, is there any waterblocks to cool that down?

I dont think so because it would be hard to get pipes in the PSU, and its just full of components and stuff , get a new silent one?

I'm pretty sure that u can't get it from any shop.
But if u are enough of a MacGyver type then go for it.
I'm pretty sure that it's been done before.

i dont think u can do it because ur entire pc produces heat so how would u get a block let alone anything to cool ur entire pc?

hmmm well you can immerse it in non conductive fluids!!! that would work, but it would be useless. watercooling the psu is not worth it. just take out the fans and get some silent ones, or get a silent psu.

Probably right... I've enough tubes runnin' around my PC right now as it is. Can I buy silent fans seperate from the PSU and just install them into mine?

Oh, and what's a good utility to download to monitor my system temperatures? Or does Windows include anything of the sort that I dont know about?
