Question Water Cooling

I'm just curious as I have no experience with water cooling - where can I get a nice kit for relatively cheap? What are good brands when it comes to water cooling? Is it worth the investment? What sort of maintenance is required? Does a water cooling system demand a lot more power? How high is the risk of a leak? Lots of questions, I know. I'm just curious!

I think I'd cry if that happend.... wait... Yeah I would.
Water Cooling is fab if you want to overclock to high heavens, but in my personal opinion it's not the easiest thing to set up, (i've done one set) and it's darn expensive. Although it's silent, Which is nice.

you can use non-conductive liquid coolant - which comes with most kits. so if there is a leak -unlikely, then theres no probs!
