    First of all, hey there :) You will be seeing alot of me around the boards here I think. :toast:


    So, I was wondering what some things I should look for when choosing a water cooling system, I'm new to the whole thing, so any info is good info :)

    OK about the CPU block, I did read here not to get a plexi block, cause they will crack, so what kind is a better option?

    Hey, and welcome to TPU. Great place to get info/help/support/tools and downloads. As far as watercooling goes check out thread "what a day I've had" in Gerneral Nonsense section. That waterblock of AthlonX2's was less than 30 days old, don't get a plexi waterblock. Also talk to the ATIOnion, he routes his watercooler through a fridge in the garage. Have fun O'c-ing, l8r.

    pexi-blocks are just for show, just get a solid copper block.
