i was looking in to getting the bigwater kit, i heard the the ext water cooling kits are alittle better then the internal ones, since everything is outside of the box and its at room temp, and the internal ones are like the temp of your case, which can be 10-25 degrees high then room temp.


but i want a h2o kit that inside, cause its easyer to move around, i was looking at the aquarius 3 its pretty nice

duct your pc so the front, or back is the exhaust for the 120mm fan and RAD, then duct in outside air from your case window, side pannel, or anywhere, and top it with a fan grill as the intake for the ambient room temp air.

if unclear i can draw a pic.

The Aquarius 3 has good performance but if you wan't the best performance, nothing beats a homemade water cooling system.

you could use paper, you could use some pvc plumbing pipe, what about this' ">http://www.frozencpu.com/cgi-bin/frozencpu/duc-16.html, well anything that is round, and will fit 120mm fan. you could even have NO DUCT and have the side hole as a 120mm intake, and the Radiator fan would suck the cooler air through.

actually its the opposite, the outside air goes to the cpu fan from outside, (where your air temp might be 21*C, rather then 35*C inside your case.
