Just a question, does water cooling look cool? Or does it just look like a buch of fish tank tubes? I looked at some pics and they looked pretty cool, but I'm skeptical about the looks in real life.

I think they look very cool!
This is mine. I've relocated my radiator to the out side of the case so my dual 120's can get fresher air.


Check out Extreme Overclocking for a ton of info on water-cooling and such.

Thanks. It looks cooler in person. Shame I have to get rid of it. Nothing beats knowing you can push your equipment as far as it can physically go without fear of heat. Plus it's fun to work with....

I'll get another setup when things settle a bit.

Just so you know, you can use everything in this kit minus the cpu water block. That could be picked up at dangerden.com...

always get TDX, it's basically their best block. the RBX requires a pretty damn strong pump, stronger than D4 and isn't THAT much of a performance increase even if you do have that pump, not to mention the 3 barbs can be a pain in the ***
