Well took the plunge and went to water cooling too hard to keep a system cool when your overclocking it on air.. So my question is this anyone else using the Zalman system? And if so have you tried any cooling products? I.e. Wetter water, Pro cool? These are products I have used in the past on my racecar and my towing vehicles with great results. Just not sure if the little pumps can take that kind of solution ( Alkaline).
Thanks

if you're OCing, dont get the zalman. from what i hear, it cools only slightly better than air, its advantage is its hella quiet. I'd suggest the Corsair HydroFX 200 (or whatever its called), the Koolance EXOS, or a DIY job (IE buy the pump, block, radiator, etc all seperately and mix'n'match)

Well if you look at my Sig line I already have and it has made a 15 Degree difference and when playing Farcry I only see a rise of about 8 Degrees above ambient. But when I start to overclock again I want to be able to exothermically pull more heat. I.e. my question about an additive that will aid this.
Thanks though
