    Meh, you actually contributed to it instead of saying, "Yeah, I agree" or something equally useless like most necrobumpers do. Also, it is a sticky, so no worries.

    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.

    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)

    how hot is a normal, non water cooled (just standard fan) video card supposed to get? my card is running >44 degrees (used to un at 39 or less, but main comp fan failed, and now video card runs hot even though i replaced main comp fan)

    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.

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

    like i said how far do you get on water?
    With water and 1.16th coolant
    From 2.8 to 3.8.


    With a Peltier
    4.1

    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.
