Sick bro! I've been wanting to watercool my PC just don't find it necessary since it doesn't get too warm. What made you decide to watercool it?

The CPU I have requires it. And it's two separate closed loop systems as I feel they are safer than a diy water-cooling setup. Plus I replace all the fans with noctua and some high speed Corsair ones as well. Corsair for case cooling and notcua's for but water cooling radiators. The kraken is a 240mm raditor placed in the front of the case. The GPU is only a 120mm cooler which is in the back of the case.

Ah understandable. Like I said, I've been kicking the idea around for a year or so now. I just don't really need it, my computer never runs super hot or anything like that.

I was against water cooling for a long time. I do like the sealed units, but after watching some videos. I am am game to do a full DIY cooling. I would want to try it on rig #2 first. Also the cost for good water blocks, fittings and other stuff is a bit high. To do a full water cool for my #1 rig would have been more than I want to think about.

I couldn't imagine doing watercooling myself, I would definitely leave that to the professionals. Especially if something goes wrong.

I get that. The idea of taking apart the GPU to put a block on it, is daunting. Jayz Two Cents was a great resource for understanding why W/C systems fail and what it takes to do it right. But when a CPU and GPU block cost close to $250, for both, for good quality -- meh I would have to be building a clocked monster to consider it. Plus most people dont get the that you have to maintain the liquid, just like a car, it has to be changed.

Still it has its fascination with me and the tinkerer/creative side of me wants to give it a go at some point.
