Default sick of fans...

ive had enough of fans so water cooling is sounds pretty good to me right now but when it comes to water cooling i have no idea what im looking at, all i want i is a water cooling system that can fit in my case and do a really good job of keeping my cpu and gpu cool so if u guys could suggest some good water cooling systems that would be great.

thx in advance

Search online. There's a whole ton of companies that make really nice water-cooling kits. Zalman and Thermaltake make really nice kits.

Here's a good article on installing water circulation system for a PC:

http://www.smartcomputing.com/Editor...2w02.asp&guid=

Here's a good site for parts:

It looks like too much work. I think I'll pass. Basic systems, even high performance machines can get away without water cooling if you have a good case with strategically placed fans. Get a good aftermarket heatsink/fan combo and that should do a pretty good job. With a fast system, I probably don't even have to OC.

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...Tab=1&NoMapp=0 ive been looking at this one and the only problem i can find is that it doesnt come with a vga block, would it be easy to add one? and does this one look any good?

I love the sound of my fans when i turn the computer on. All 7 fans going, sounds like a beast! i think it's cool, gives it an even cooler aura I think. i haven't tried OC'ing yet, but everything runs under 100 degrees fahrenheit.
