      I'm building my first computer right now, and I'm considering overclocking and using your water cooling system:. With overclocking a p4 3.0 and a raedon 9800 pro, with the water pump, would a 350w power supply be safe or would you recommend I install a smoke detector inside my case? (j/k )
      ... or maybe I'm just a complete idiot.

      haha its 350 is fine.

      also note that some pumps require an AC outlet... meaning you gotta plug em into a wall socket

      scuse me Aero. could you please post a link or two where to buy some of the parts you use? like the water block/good pump/tubs?
      Beacause ten billion years' time is
      so fragile, so ephemeral...
      it arouses such bittersweet,
      almost heartbreaking fondness.

      too bad thats a waste of money, for 200 bucks more you can get a prommie and oc a 2.4c to 4.1ghz..... or get a vaporchill sys. or better yet get real ghetto and make a waterchill that can oc to 4.1..... plus water cool systems are so ineffecient. you could just buy an SP-94 and oc just as good, for 50 bucks..

      LoL 200 more? how much is phase change cooling where you live? Water cooling costs are around the $200 to $250 mark. Plus Want GPU colling with your phase? you might as well not have any PCI slots because the phase cooling unit is so big. WHy not add a peltier to you WC setup You could reach 4.ghz. Water cooling ineffecient? can you back that up? Sure its a waste of money if you buy a premade kit like thermaltakes. An SP-94 as good as watercooling? will that cool your CPU and GPU? nope. Inorder to get a good OC with that you gotta have a nice loud fan. It's about as good as a cheep WC set up.

      I'm still learning about computers I never heard about watercooling your computer. Can someone tell me how this helps your system?

      Wow that looks cool!
      So all you people have heat problems too? My computer restarts itself alot when playing FFXI.
      You know what my cooling system is? I open up the side of my computer and point a small desk fan into there and that works good! Haha.

      Re: How to water cool your system

      Ugh, go with Koolance, they've been the first, and with my 13+ years of water cooling systems, they've always been the best. My current setup:

      AMD Phenom II 940 (current clock is 3.4GhZ on all cores)
      6 GB of DDR2 RAM
      ATi Radeon HD 4890 GPU (1 GB of GDDR5 VRAM)
      (Currently all but the HDD's are liquid cooled)
      1.75TB of HDD space spread accross 4 SATA drives.

      I have three temp sensors on my system that come with the Koolance Pump + 3 Fans + Radiator + coolant, CPU temp, when CPU is at half load never exceeds 31*C, Full load on all cores never exceeds 35*C, The video card, in normal operation, sits at about 30*C, and the internal case temp is 28*C.

      Once you switch to liquid cooling, you never switch back, I don't think I could go with air cooling, once I've seen what my system can do under full out stress.

      If I were to go with non-liquid cooled, I'll seal my case and install an A/C compressor in it.

      IMO, nothing can beat a koolance. Simple, easy to install and work with, they have ready to go cases that you can buy, they use Lian-Li cases and products (top of the line computer cases, built strong) and generally have a much longer life time then most other products (I have a cooling system that I bought from them in 2002 that still works almost like brand new, the only problem with it was a fan went out on it)

      Apologies, I didn't notice that until I actually had posted, and since I found some relevance with my post and the thread is stickied, I didn't think twice to editing/deleting it, so my fault.
