I went to water cooling because....

  1. of its cooling capabilities

    54.8%
  2. it is quieter

    20.4%
  3. it looks BAD ASS

    17.2%
  4. Money isn't an issue for me. Disposable income FTW

    7.5%

    I went Watercooling cause I love my office nice and hot...
    I started watercooling when the FX60 came out. Chip was hot and I wanted to max the crap out of it. Soon after Intel came along with the Q6600 and we all know how hot that bugger was.
    Still using the same pump, but since then my swiftech kit has long since been upgraded to superior blocks and rads.
    The Swiftech kit was a nice way to get wet for the first time, and would still recommend it to any first timer wanting to test the waters.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I bought an old school Koolance water cooling case. This is my first venture into Wc. So far so good. This is a win xp play with rig and not my main. But I am thinking of going water on my main rig.

    I wanted to spank the granny out of my phenom II 945,not content with just getting wet,i got wet and cold,very cold at the same time..it also helped to silence my noisy as hell gtx 470s :eek:)

    FWIW I got 4.18ghz/4 ghz cpu nb and god only knows what out of the 470s but the cold killed 'em in the end..

    It didn't cost much in parts to get wet,but the bill from running a 5k btu a/c unit all the time was a shocker..

    In hindsight,3 years on and i'm still using some of the w/c parts,but OCcing sandybridge is nowhere near as much fun,even if it is much faster at stock.
