    That's assuming watercooling will still be around in 2-3 years, who knows what twists technology will take.
    From my studies on watercooling, it really doesn't seem that complex. If you go to overclockers.com you can get all the help you need in the watercooling forum. A basic cpu loop consists of a res, pump, radiator and a CPU block. It's just about finding the parts, and that pretty much just your budget that decides your parts for you. There's like 4 or 5 different pumps that are most used, same with CPU blocks. Finding a rad is the hardest part, but the clever people writes some awesome reviews that are easy to understand for us newbs

    Me neither, but Fuzzy needn't know.
    I'm guessing you're looking forward to it?

    So, you're in fact a younger reincarnation of the Canadas?

    No, I'm 25 on Friday. I just don't drink often I guess. xD

    Edit: Unless 25 is young to you.

    I remember opening new NES games. My mother would look at me weird when I would just smell the cartridge, and the inside of the box.

    Though, my apartment complex recently installed a new gate. The arm that opens it... makes a very wonderful sound! Everyone looks at me weird when I turn off the radio, just to listen to the gate open.
