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:

http://www.frozencpu.com/

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.

Yes. It was originally designed for the Athlon FX-51 and Opteron series. It required Registered ECC RAM, which was expensive and slow (but stable, therefore great for servers). Then AMD dropped it from the Athlon FX line (and had it use Socket 939), and continued it with the Opteron series. If I'm not mistaken, the Opteron series uses the Socket 939 AND Socket 940 (although the Socket 940 processors are older cores).

i got dual 7800gtxs and from what i have expereince it fits fine. its just right on top of the card. i like it keeps everything cool and i suggest u get that one. the 7800gtx is pretty big so i guess it should fit. its nto really that big and if it is all u do is flip it out and u can still run the hoses. its a nice cooling system.
