Default Liquid Cooling??

Is liquid cooling your computer way better than fans?? I would also be woried about mixing water with electronics.

I have an AMD 4800+ X2 CPU and I am looking to overclock it soon, currently I am running about 36-38 Deg C while playing games not overclocked.

What will the temps jump to when overclocking??

What is the maximum temp that an 4800 X2 can handle?? I know that since it has two cores it naturally produces more heat than a singe core CPU.

I have Koolance's ICM 510,it was easy to install and keeps temps and noise down. if you plan on overclocking or you don't like the sound of 800 fans going at the same time,get it. yes,it is possible for it to leak, but if you are carefull about assembly/maintenence,you wont have any problems.
