Anybody got any views/info on liquid cooled computers and how it works? i dont know to much so im just looking for some feedback to see if its worth considering and if its pricey?

Do you have a car?

Then it works the same as that.

Only everything is much, much smaller...

Pricey = Yes

You only need a liquid cooled system if you are going to be overclocking your PC. Also if you want a quieter PC liquid cooling would give you this.

"WaterChill CPU Cooler supporting Intel P4 S478, AMD socket A and Hammer (Requires 4 holes in motherboard)"

If you do go for it be careful please, don't want a flooded PC case :-(

two useful forums are liquidninjas and pclincs

these are frequented by serious coolers, not just water, refrigeration and vapoor cooling where the cpu can run at MINUS 35 DEGRESS C!!!

Don't forget a transparent side panel and a couple of goldfish.

keep a tray under the pc for auto defrost mode and to catch the excess condensation.
You could buy a case with a door on the front and store your salad inside.

Take a look at The Overclocking Store click here

Loads of watercooling ideas including all the bits you need.

This is the realm of the serious overclocker, there are many 'silent' cooling solutions that are far cheaper.

PS Take a look at the sections marked "Advanced Cooling", "Liquid Cooling:Koolance" and "Refrigeration:Prometeia"

PPS Powerless - Your comment should read " Do you have a car ? It costs about the same as that".
