Default thinking about water cooling

I'm seriously looking at water cooling now. I want to make sure I get a system that isn't going to fail and ruin my computer, i was looking at the evercool wc-202 and i definately like the pricetag on it, but i don't know if it's a good name in cooling or not, the only brand that i actually know is good is thermaltake, but those are pretty expensive. Anybody using one of these? if not what are you using/what would be a good one to use? (lga 775)

zalman and coolermaster are also pretty good. if you dont want a silent one like the zalman resperator then get a all in one cooling kit that takes the place of 1-2 cd drives.

Only do it if you have the money and know the risks. Any accidental drops or leaks, and you can say bye to your computer.

just get a custom water cooling setup. Unless you are too lazy to do that. If you are going custom...get some Dangerden waterblocks. I heard they are a lot better than leading brands.

ive got a question: if the pump or radiator fails, my computer will shut off before the temp gets too high and melts my cpu, right?
