Default Re: Water cooling.

could you technically just get new tubing and take the old stuff out and add in what you want?

are you talking about premade cooling like the eliminator I mentioned? no, those can't be added to... unless you want to go through a whole lot of trouble

plus, they only have enough cooling power for a CPU, adding something else may cause problems

TEC coolers are power hungry and you are taking considerable risk in the event of failures (either the TEC or the HSF/block cooling it).

Luke, this isn't a good idea man

usually you should spend 250+ for a good cooler, maybe you should take a look at the ChillTec Thermo Electric Cpu Cooler?

true

but its freaking cheap, and probably better than the crappy one's he'd normally get in this range

Ultra ChillTec Socket 939775AM2 Thermal Electric CPU Cooler ULT33186 in Canada at TigerDirect.ca

please tell me you aren't intrigued by that
