I think the Innovatek is the highest performance kit out. Koolance is very good and cools well. Swiftech cools a little better than the Koolance but it cannot be used to water cool components other than the CPU whereas the Koolance has component coolers for the graphics card, hard drive, northbridge, and other parts. I think Tom's Hardware has a review of the Innovatek and Swiftech. http://www6.tomshardware.com/cpu/02q1/020102/index.html

the Innovantek would be the "best" to put with cooling efficiency, the problem is that the parts come seperately, and you'll have to drill some holes somewhere, for example, where are you going to put the radiator? :)

Swiftech is pretty good, but then again, last I checked they only cooled the CPU. they come as a case set, you get the case and the cooler.

Koolance, on the other hand, is the best for beginning watercoolers, or for people who don't want to drill through everything. (me). you get the case, and you order what coolers you want. you can get a CPU cooler, a video card cooler, a motherboard chipset cooler, and a HD cooler. www.koolance.com

Water cooling is really good but there are a few good air cooling(HSF) around that performs well and almost about the same cooling effect as water cooling :idea: :twisted:

not really...if you use an 80mm hs fan. I think the radiator would be more intrussive than the fan.

The only day I would be convinced to water-cool my sytem is when the water-cooling manufacturer will warrant your system if ever their product would "screw-up" :roll:

well the origional question referred to watercooling.

a relatively simple installation would be the Koolance. for complex installation but slightly better cooling performance, check out Innovantek.

But with some good fans can you get your computer to a temp of about 40 degrees?

It depends on the ambient temp. If you put your computer in a refrigerator you wouldn't need fans. :P 40C is attainable with a good ambient temperature coupled with good case ventilation and a quality hsf.
