Are you asking if water cooling is bull?

Water cooling has been around for quite a while and is far superior to air cooling. It also tends to be less noisy.

if you do water cooling just make sure that you know what you are doing. Watercooling is not for a beginner on the computer.

Water cooling is very very good but can be expensive and I would not suggest it to anyone who isnt experianced or doesnt know what they are doing.

I have a good long expirience on computers. But right now I don't have the funds for something like that.

Thamks for clearing that up though I had heard many conflicting opinions on the issue beforehand.

very good guide, you could also build a custom plexiglass case and fill it with vegetable oil :)

i noticed in another thread that you mentioned the nautilus 500. i too was looking into that a while ago as a cheap way to introduce water cooling to my system but steered away from it because of some of the drawbacks. apparently its not all that much greater than some air-cooling solutions and the cost isnt all that justified.

Cool, and thanks that link helped alot. I think I'm probably going to just get a nice heat sink and fan, just less complicated and less that can go wrong.
