And we'll remember two nightmares:

One is that if the pump fails, there's big trouble

Second, you can't take it everywhere like you want. Preety fragile and heavy if not handled the right way.

You only really need that if you have the requirement for it. If when you're running full blast your processor starts overheating. Or if your processor is worth so much you need it to last for a very very long time and hence need the temperatures down to keep off stress.

You won't need it for any kind of normal set up.

Tomshardware people have been doing it for years and years, and they get the hardware for free. They know it won't damage it, because it probably won't. We don't do it because if it does, we loose a lot of money. They don't have that problem. If we had the money, we wouldn't do it either.

Watercooling is exactly "silent" either, but with watercooling, you can take your processor past the limits of air cooling. Pumps are usually very reliable if you buy from the good brands like DangerDen, Swiftech, Iwaki, Ehiem. Watercooling isnt supposed to be portable, but people have squeezed watercooling into the Aspire Q-pack and some other ones too. Pretty cramped.
