Default newbie-water cooling

Hi everyone,

I'm planning on building my own pc, its been awhile since the last time i did, and
i was thinking that this time i would go with liquid cooling. I've never built a liquid cooled pc before, and was hoping to get some tips on what i need to do and maybe some suggestions on liquid cooling products.

thanks,
Knight51

Depends on the kind of overclocking you want to do. If you only want to do some mild OCing then a Corsair H series would be just fine.

Well TBH water cooling is a mighty expensive thing to get into if you don't plan to overclock. It's more for the extreme side of things. If you simply want a quieter and cooler solution an H50 or H80 is nice, or simply a Cooler Master 212 Evo too.

Water cooling leads to state change cooling, and just progresses from there. Cooling is like heroin, you just cant stop :P
