    Erm, i hope he knows that they ground through the heatsink? So would make all the metal piping/water in his system live. This I don't think would prove very healthy for his system, do you?

    I've spoken to people who have and they said it wasn't worth it. They recommended just buying a very good heatsink and fan (swiftech/thermalright/zalman) and saving the cash. They perform better than that watercooling kit and are almost certainly quieter.

    Nope. While most of the components are isolated devices anyway, they all have mica shims to isolate them. Some PSU's don't. and watercooling them without adding shims in this manner would be a Very Bad Thing (tm). On the plus side, water-cooling a q-tec might help to put it out when it catches fire.

    lol, but most liely it may just spark itself into submission and then the qtec would electriify the water, god knows wot could happen if a pc was made entirely of q-tec components

    I just think its funny with the funnel attached to the system

    Yeah - those sort of kits aren't really worth it, saw a review of a similar kit by evercool, really wasn't good, lol.

    Nah, thats not much copper.



    Thats copper!

    I don't have a watercooled PSU though. My concern with that is that not all the components inside that get warm are attached to those heatsinks, they are cool enough with the breeze from the fan. Taking the fan away and just cooling the very hot components means that the warm components are then put in stagnant air, to get hotter, and hotter. I have a huge slab of alu on my very hot components and a pabst 12dB. It's not fanless, but it is silent. I'm more concerned with the racket my Maxtor HDDs make.

    Home made wall mountable radiator by the looks of it. Is it easy to get a good solder contact for that?

    Why would it be pointless? Could be integrated into a room being cooled completely passively and if polished up would look good aswell
