    Personally I've never gone down the watercooling road but as the manufacturers make it easier and more accessible it really does start to become an attractive proposition. One thing that always put me off was the fact the hoses never seemed to fix together very well plus if it goes wrong and you get a leak....bye bye pc!

    In the who cares on this subject I believe thats one reason Apple stopped making the water cooled G5. Though it was not the only reason.

    Ok,
    so some people believe it's great. But, does it really hold down temperatures. The only commercial water cooled product I can remember is the G5 by Apple. And that did not last all that long did it? What are the costs involved and what does one have to do to get it all together?
