    The CPU block from Gigabyte's Galaxy set offers that option. I think you can buy it seperately without the whole set, but I may be wrong.

    Edit: See here for TPUs review of the set and the fan that clips onto the block.

    Why would you want to use a water block as an air cooler? Water blocks are supposed to be used with water, not fans.

    :laugh: ya cause i was always thinking of the back-up option, if the water pump fails it can still ventilate the CPU without over heating, or one of the other:laugh: specially cause im using a sealed external case, I was planning to try Hybrid WC to add to my back-up cooling:)

    Well... it might work if you let the fan spin with 90000rpm, otherwise please bury that thought deep enough so you will newer come across it again:)

    If you go water, then go WATER, not air. BUT: Instead of focusing on pushing air towards the CPU, focus on a well ventilated case that directs airflow over the parts that now are missing fresh air due to the missing CPU fan.

    ya sure:laugh: start a new thread then we`ll go from there;) but im telling you active cooling has a drawback man:( it can cool your entire system depending on what you set (5c-15c) but you may experience higher electricity bill:laugh: (150W-200W) 110 VAC @ 1.5 amps or 0.75 Amps. on 220VAC just for the cooling itself:ohwell:


    that`s why im gonna try water cooling+air cooling so that if the weather is cold, i can switch to it, and if the weather is hot, i can turn on the refrigerated:eek:

    i don't give a damm about electricity bill, i'm just want to learn something new, and i'm tired about water/air cooling,




    bro why don't you make your own custom Water block, and glue a TRUE on top of that
