    Quoted for truth!

    You also start looking at other peoples setups and dreaming of the perfect setup.

    I have to disagree. I got a cooling kit and it was not very good. I'm now back to air cooling (although you can see where that got me, haha). I still think up dream systems with peltier cooled video cards, CPUs, Ram. Everything will be liquid cooled including the PSU and motherboard.

    I have seen a lot of cheap kits out there, and heard really bad things about a lot of them. The one problem with watercooling is that to do it right, it really requires an initial investment of at least a couple hundred dollars. I was thinking it over the other day, and my current loop cost me almost exactly $600..

    Haha, yeah, you did. That batch of stuff you got from blueonblack is worth about twice what you paid for it.

    EDIT:
    That is one thing that is both nice and annoying about watercooling stuff...it tends to not really depreciate much at all.

    Glad someone can get some good out of one of my errors in judgement for once.
    “Do not trust people like me. I will take you to museums, and parks, and monuments, and kiss you in every beautiful place, so that you can never go back to them without tasting me like blood in your mouth. I will destroy you in the most beautiful way possible, and when I leave you will finally understand why storms are named after people.”

    The TT loop I have installed in my AM2 rig is keeping things about 10C over ambient on a full load. Now how long it will last before the copper and aluminum start swapping electrons is another story.

    ... -_^ They made a kit loop with both aluminum and copper components??? ...I think the worst part is that I'm not really that surprised..it is TT after all.

    Just remember guys, one of these days if you keep going down the road you'll be like me, and still have radiators all over the house and tubing in boxes and still trying to plan the perfect loop.

    There is no "perfect loop." Merely one better than the last time.

    Mod on, brothers. Can't wait to add my own pics in here.
