    Watercooling

    Hi,

    I live in the south of France, average daily temperature is about 30°C, which means it gets hot in my house, even more so with a computer. Thussly, the cpu fan has to be going @ full pelt everyday with the CPU at stock 2.80Ghz. Could someone point me in the direction or explain watercooling and what to buy. A friend of mine did it but his cheapo watercooling leaked, so his CPU fried.

    Or check out our brief look at Zalman Reserator 1 Plus

    This is an easy to install system and should be more hassle free than complicated setups.

    Checkout the Corsair Hydrocool 200EX aswell, very easy to install external kit so you have less chance of getting a leak that would fry your system (res and heat exchanger are not in the case so cant leak). Looks the part too

    ive got one for sale here http://forums.hexus.net/showthread.p...463#post496463

    willing to post it to france...

    Another good resource for n00bie advice on watercooling is the asetek forums and www.procooling.com once you get more au fait with it.

    I love my watercooling setup and managed to get it going fine as a total n00bie! I've got an Asetek setup on my dual Xeon. I've now upgraded the Hydor L20 pump for an Alphacool one which has a greater flow and more importantly is a lot quieter.

    Good luck!
