    Question Water cooling? And cases xD

    Any one know a rough price for a water cooling system (complete to support nb and all the other stuff). As im going to have about £170 comming my way soon hopefully and was wondering if thats enough? and is it work it?.(not a hard core overclocker as i like warranty )

    And also, what case should i get? i have a budget of upto £90, was thinking of either the p182 or antec 900, whats the best one for quiet and cooling?, what gives the most space?. And any other cases i should look at?

    Re: Water cooling? And cases xD

    I wouldnt get an antec 900 for water cooling. The P182 is a lovely case. £170 will gain you access to decent water cooling. However if you are not a serious overclocker, i doubt you will see too much of a benefit over a decent air cooler. Personally if you arent out looking for higher clocks because air cooling is non-sufficient for you i would not bother with water cooling.

    Save yourself some money time and hassel, buy a new air cooler (Freezer 7 Pro is good but not as good as some more high end air cooler)

    Thats my two cents, if your hearts set in stone for water cooling (Agreed it looks cool, upgrades your e-penis and gives more stable tempatures) then i can dig out a decent custom gear list.

    Re: Water cooling? And cases xD

    hmm nice.... shame my dad wont let me spend that much on it xD, he doesnt even see why i need a new case and thinks £50 is too much but its my money xD. Selling a couple of computers which should give me another £100 in total, £270 w00t, if only i got another 8800gts right now.....

    edit: any chance you guys know about the Lian Li A17? im interested in one of them as it was mentioned to me but i cant find it anywhere in england, any chance some1 knows where and price and is it good?XD

    Check out the coolermaster 690, its excellent value and well made:

    Computer hardware and software at amazing prices, available online from Scan Computers UK

    check out the hexus review, they seem to like it and rate it as an alternative to the antec 900.
