ya so far the bigwater kit is the best combo of silence and performance and price that i have seen. You cant really beat it.

wel... technically if you jumped into 0 degree water, you'd probably shatter your body as it would be ice

Your body would only shatter assuming it's 0 degrees Kelvin

Depends on the volume of water.

If it were a lake, then you would substain injury when breaking through the surface... But once you're in, you're good to go.

ok ok wait, doesn't the water cooling unit itself make alot of noise? you know with the pump and stuff? Doesnt it take up alot of room? Is it really worth getting watercooling?

Watercooling is silent. It is well worth it if you are an overclocking enthusiast.

well if you have a lot of case fans or something along those lines you wouldn't notice it compared to say a high powers fan like the Vantec tornado. No they aren't completely silent, but compared to a lot of fans they are which is the point.

As for overclocking, well in the case of the bigwater I don't know if it's worth it. I think you'd have to get like a nice $200+ water cooling setup so you can make sure and have temps down at like 10C but I haven't read anything into water cooling so I couldn't tell you which ones perform the best. I think the bigwater is just an average, cheap solution for those who want to 'test the waters' if you will on water cooling
