    Cool Watercooling for a 64bit system (planning ahead.)

    I'm thinking ahead now to when I'm going to Uni (in a year and a bit.)

    Before that occurs, I'll be getting an Athlon 64 laptop, and sticking some new junk in the smaller of my two main cases.

    The PC will probably be an Athlon 64 based affair (2nd gen by the time I buy it I reckon.) I quite fancy watercooling it.

    So, what sort of systems are there are good w/c ones? One with a TEC would be nice - I'm willing to make sure everything is protected from condensation.

    I only really have three concerns:

    1. Overclockability - I want to get something decent out of it, though I'm not after a record breaker.
    2. Price - Don't want to break the bank but I've got plenty of time to budget.
    3. Space - the case is a midi-tower, so space saving options like a drive bay reservoir would be smashing! There's a 120mm mounted at the back - a Rad might squeeze in there, otherwise I'd mount it there, but outside the case.

    A pic of the case to give you an idea of the space.


    Cheers then!

    Kez.

    It looks good, and while I'm after a review sample - it's not what I'm after for this particular system I don't think.
