  1. Hey hey,

    I've often seen pics of machines that use water cooling to keep
    those babies chilled. My questions are however:

    1. When does it become necessary to use water cooling?
    2. What different types are there.
    3. How much do they run.
    4. Are they hard to put in?

    As a PC guy I like tp put em together but I've never really stepped into this grey area of building. I think maybe one day I'd like to Mod my own PC from scratch...maybe some red lights and a nice case to boot....but I've always been interested in water cooling..


    So what say you water coolers...
    Howz it work.

    1. IMO its never really necessary, just when you want your cooling to be quieter, and maybe better at cooling in some cases.

    2. For pumps, which are the main part, there is two main types. 1 type needs to be placed in water, and 1 needs a reservoir to hold its water.

    3. When you say how much do they run, what do you mean?

    4 I do not know, I have never installed one.
