Hey there. I'm thinking of puting a water cooler into my system (On CPU not GPU). I want to do this mainly because it looks cool (No pun intended). This is the first time I have ever even thought about water cooling. Is it dangerous (Leakage/spillage). The one i'm looking at is the "Thermaltake Big Water Liquid Cooling System" If anyone can give me pointers or tips that would be great. Cheers guys, Nik.

Why would you spend 300 bucks on liquid cooling just because it looks cool? If you wish to overclock your pc and reduce the noise level that a large amount of fans produce, I could see that. If you still want to do it then yeah like he said, get a pro to do it.

You can get a good heat sink from theraright for $50 and does better than that water cooling system. If you want one though, build one your self and get a better performance

liquid cooling is cool. I have considered it myself. but only for overclocking. I do not see a point in doing if your not over clocking. However, like you said theres always the risk of potential water leaks. water and computer components do not mix.

You guys are missing the point. I want to buy one because I WANT TO and it looks cool. Screw o/cing, my system goes so damn hard that O/Cing is pointless. lol I have money to burn and thats what im going to do with it. Set fire to it when my Water Cooler leaks and blows my computer up! Does anyone know if thermaltake are a really good water cooling brand/very safe? I suppose I could just bog up every corver/tube possible to make it 100% leak proof. Anymore suggestions?

Yeah: don't waste your time and money. "Because I can" is the worst reason ever for watercooling. You do know that you have to maintain it, yes? You do know that Thermaltake uses craptastically poor quality components, yes? You do know that there are much more cost effective ways of making your computer look "cool", yes? But since you don't seem to care if you ruin something... knock yourself out. And overclocking is never pointless. Heretic.

Its not difficult, and only requires common sense. If you think you can do then, then you can. So my pointers: When you get your water cooling system. First put it together outside of your computer and run it with water for several hours to check for leaks. (if a part is leaking demand it be replaced) Then when it has run without leaks for several hours. Install it in you computer fill it and run it again for several hours, while you computer is turned off to check for any new leaks. Once it has run for several hours without leaking go ahead and boot your comp and start enjoying your work.
