    liquid cooling is watercooling.

    Unless you're using liquid nitrogen, but i don't think that's a long-term solution!

    There are a lot of watercooling kits out there, but make sure you don't go for a cheap one, because it will be no better than air cooling. Swiftech and dangerden are the best two to go for, but they come at a price.

    Swiftech actually has an apogee all in one kit on newegg for around $150USD.

    http://www.frozencpu.com has all kinds of information that you are looking for.

    If noone else has told you, Thermaltake Bigwater sucks.
    Thats just what ive heard from several people from round here...

    I guess it ties in with what infrared says about how you get what you pay for

    Actually I reccomend not using water but a non conductive coolant and the best coolers usually are built one piece at a time from the best parts. I tried thermaltake liquid cooling before I went custom and it cooled no better than a Zalaman or Big typhoon.

    I couldn't say it better A cheap cooler is like putting a time bomb inside your case.
