That's a neat looking little heatsink, lazerman. Maybe something worth buying for another build in a month or so, just to check it out.
As for the loudness of any fan, i'm not really concerned with that. I have other computers in the same room, as well as a television, a fridge, surround sound speakers and a window air conditioner which i had to custom install on the INSIDE of my room with custom ducting to direct the outtake-air through the window. Sound isn't really an issue and would probably just blend in with the other million sounds going on around here. Heh. Luckily i can always just turn the volume up.
I've spent sometime checking out watercooling units. I read a few articles and reviews. What do you all think about that ZALMAN resorator? I really like the look of that external radiator with natural convection. I also looked at the Thermal take bigwater which looks pretty promising.
I really want something with a temp display, and something i could control the fan speeds with, even if i had to custom make it, or assemble a few different models together to get what i'm envisioning.
Any comments on the Aquagate by coolermaster?
