    Corsair demo Nautilus cooled computer

    Sending our journos in search of interesting things on the show floor, we discovered the new Nautilus 500 watercooling system, which aims to be the easiest watercooling system to setup to date

    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    I wonder how much this will be when it comes to market? I have not been intersted in this field of cooling, but if the price is right then I may just be tempted - if the benefits are worth the cost, of course...

    A no fuss system is always going to more expensive than a DIY alternative.

    I can't help but think the same thing - would be nice if we were wrong, eh?

    It will be launching at $155, so I suspect we will see this one at around £100 (street price!)

    Hrmm - is it worth switching over from an XP-120 with a panaflo fan tho?

    Anyone know when these things will be available in the UK? £100 seems tempting if it can improve on a high spec air setup. Might coax my opty 146 from 2.8 - 3gig

    It won't do, opterons will perform the same at pretty much any temperature above ambient. Its the silicon that limits you so unless you go for tec or phase cooling it is a waste of money.

    The only real way you get value for money from water cooling is the silence aspect. Performance wise, especially in modern games, the extra 50mhz or so you'll gain will mean virtually nothing.

    Does that mean that my Opty will perform similarly with either a stock heatsink and fan, my G Power Pro unit or standard water cooling?
