Sweet, Merry Christmas!!! Water cooling is too costly when you already have a good rig.

Well water cooling is nice if it cuts down on the noise and eliminates the need to shovel out the dust build up every couple of months. Of course if you have to cut up your nice case it's crying shame.

Your CPU runs 24c under load? I'd have to be a bit skeptical about that.

And if it is true, I'd certainly be doing some overclocing if I were you.

I agree.. Is the temp. that your telling us, is that what your H/W in the BIOS is telling you or are you monitoring it by an outside source?

Noise and dust were killing my last system!! DUST in the heat sink fins nearly killed my old T-bird.............

As for cutting up your case............DID not have to........

The great thing about Koolance is the case has a water cooler integrated into it by the case MANUFACTURER..........

When I compare the Koolance external water cooler kit with the one PRE-installed in my gorgeous case .....I can see NO difference.........When the case is designed to have a water cooler included there IS NO cutting!!

As for the temp I gave you...............................It wasn't REALLY under load...

Wasn't Idle Either...... Load should probably be like 2 hrs with HALO 2 or FAR cry.....Instead of 20minutes...........but hey, my old air cooled ring was at 45C in that same time period............SO I at least was impressed..even if you giuys are not....


As for where I get the temp reading........The water heatsink siting on the cpu has a sensor attached........

NO its NOT the internal core cpu temp....but how many sensor REALLY measure CORE temp any way?? My intel box has a system temp monitor as well and it is also sitting on the space between the heatsink and cpu....

Cool. If it makes you happy then do it!

My bros got a custom water cooling mod in the mod section of the forum. His cooling temps are great even overclocked to the point of bursting!
