See subject/title line: I would like advice based on your experiences (& maybe even reviews of what you suggest to me)...

Hydro-cooling, it's not an area I have EVER gotten into, but I do see the successes others have had using this method vs. air cooling...

:)

* So, looking around here, & especially on the 'case modding gallery' part of the forums? I know quite a few of you guys are "into it", & I could use some suggestions...

WHAT IS/ARE THE "GOOD STUFF" IN THIS AREA

(Mostly interested for CPU here (but RAM & Video based ones are not out of the picture in the future here either quite possibly!))

TIA!

P.S.=> What you paid is also a consideration - I am into saving a buck as much as the next guy... thanks! apk
