I'd flush the loop with distilled water just to be safe. Actually, you'd be better off with distilled water and the PT Nuke I posted earlier and it would be cheaper.

Your cpu definitely is NOT overheating at 40C

Here is an interesting article on water cooling: CLICK It is quite theoretic, but informative...

I know I do.
well that wouldnt really ever happen, water/liquid cooling will always be better than air, unless they made something really nice and new but it always will be at this point in life. Though i would never trust to put in my system, sorry but i rather not be throwing away a $554 GPU, $240 cpu, and a bunch of other expensive equipment into the trash.

I know leaks are not very likley but their is always a chance that it may happen

You're kidding me, right? There are plenty of air coolers that stay in a few degrees range of liquid cooling.

You can't just generalize it all into something that small, especially when you start talking about heat loads and the many different configurations out there.

Sure, a 45nm dual-core CPU running stock clocks with a good cooler on top will rival liquid cooling loops just because the heat load is low. If you throw a 65nm overclocked quad-core CPU in there, I'm sure the gap will widen with a good waterblock and at least a 2x120MM radiator.

Thanks. I'm not trying to crap on what Rohan said though. If you want liquid cooling to be worth it, you're gonna be looking at $200+ for the CPU alone. High end air > Low-end liquid.

yes thats true but water cooling would be a bit better than air, especially for GPU's, its EXPENSIVE, especially for GPU waterblocks, but if your a very high overclocker, water cooling is the way to go. Plus its quite and doesnt way a ton like a Coolermaster V8 or V10, or even their V12, not sure if the 12 is out yet but its been announced.
