    I'm sure I could google it, but still, better spend a hundred dollars getting it built and be safe than not spending the extra hundred and be sorry.

    I was thinking of going with the corsair WC closed loop setups, but honestly my case is pretty dinky. I don't even know if it will be able to hold my mobo.
    Around 30-40 idle, 70 at full stress, but I've got to remove dust from the case.
    I haven't really looked at or tried any watercooling myself, but I don't like the idea of having liquid inside my desktop incase of a ruptured tube.

    Those sealed units don't really leak. They aren't like the ghetto setups that are pieced together by redneck magic and walmart pipe fittings.

    Thats pretty hot though. http://i.imgur.com/eFxj8.png I don't break 65 degrees and I'm using the stock cooler.

    also watercooling is such a space hog.

    My max temp since boot has been 64c (played a load of PS2 and Tera...)
    Highest ever was 71/72, intel burn test ;__;

    Yeah, but still.
    I blame dust for it being over 70. It was around 60-65 when I did the stress runs while overclocking.

    You should look up his cooler before you say that.

    I'm here to entertain.

    Also, funny story. My CPU cooler was only mounted with the 3/4 push pins. My idle temp wouldn't vary much from my load temp. Once I fixed that my idle temps went way down.

    I haven't been paying attention, I just saw the watercooling part. Got a fucking 75 in my first Music Theory test.

    God I hate music theory.

    Watercooling can be mounted externally. So you aren't affected by your towers ambient temps.

    I've seen some meganerds mount their rads outside their windows and shit.

    I did manage to boot at 5.2, around 75-80 C, but it would bsod under very little stress. Had it stable at 5.0 for a bit, but the voltage was a bit too high imo.

    I'd be lying if I said I haven't thought about it.

    I still can't figure out why my screen goes into rave mode when I OC my GPU. It flickers really badly.

    Also, sickest thing I've seen.
    Participated in a Folding contest a while ago. Basically, it utilized whatever spare CPU and GPU power you have to medical research, giving you points for how good you're doing. Really putting a number on your computer's performance.
    I pulled about 60k-70k points per day with my setup.
    This guy, he did about 175-200k points per day.

    Basically a server board with two of four CPU slots filled.

    I always wondered how you can have your mobos like that without standoffs. I thought the standoffs were grounds.

    Imagine that thing with 4 CPUs. He would be cranking insane ppd.

    Also, you visit overclock.net?
