Actualy A combination of Air cooling and Water cooling is best, Even if you have Low Noise/Low Speed fans along with Water cooling, it is still better then water cooling alone.

besides you still need a way to push air past the radiator.

Well, technically there is no completely water cooled pc. There will always be a fan somewhere.

Just about any water coolng kit you can buy, with the exception of the eservator and one other by thermaltake, no water cooling kit is fanless.

just know what your talking about before you post. Ok?

i'd buy a fast car if it was for really cheap and i wouldn't have to worry about anything but filling the tank (he/she wouldn't have to worry about anything other than refilling the liquid in the system.)

anyways i understand that they're not planning on OCing. It's still better for the CPU to be cooler and if in the future OCing is a choice then there's no hassel about cooling.

There's no reason to get rid of a non-OC'ed CPU unless it's still outdated even w/ OC and that shouldn't be a problem w/ a Conroe as they can OC to double their stock speed fequency.

it's actually $54 to upgrade from the stock heatsink. it's $35 more to upgrade from the stock heatsink w/ 2 case fans option.

and if they install the liquid cooling then there should be no problems cuz they'd have to replace parts for at least a year w/ warrenty.

I do know what Im talking about, Thxs.

Whenever the topic of water cooling comes up I always suggest Low noise fans in addition to whatever water cooling product(s) they are looking at.

A lot of old people buy fast sports cars and drive slow...I don't know what that's all about
