Default Re: WaterCooling

Watercooling is the best way to cool your system if your knowledgable with computers and you dont mind getting your hands wet a bit (hopefully). I myself have watercooling and ive only changed the fluid once in about the 5 months ive had my watercooling system. I bought this one just because its easy and cheap and Thermaltake is a very good quality compay.

this is the setup i have in my comp, with the addidition of the Aquarious GPU block.

If you decide not to go with watercooling, then i heard these are really good at keeping the cpu temps down . The Zalman 9500 pricy but i think well worth it thing is HUGE!
