I have been programming on computers since the ZX81.
I am an apprentice trained Electronics Engineer with qualifications to back it up.
I have been repairing computers since 1996.
Yet to some people I still know nothing...

Saw a similar thing years ago on an XP1700... They got a few Ghz out of it... :lol:

I fail to see the attraction of mixing live electronics and water. Spend $2000 on a new system and then blow it up :? It seems a bit retarded to me.

Some positives:

1.) Quieter
2.) Cooler temperatures
3.) More efficient (less power required)

It will not "blow up". It will not short circuit or anything like that. For one, you always let your loop operate for at least 24 hours before putting it in your case, to check for leaks. Then, in the unlikely even you get a leak, you use non-conductive fluid. Even if my radiator sprung a huge leak and dumped it's fluid all over my PSU and motherboard (which are right below), my PC would be fine. Just dry it off, get a new radiator, and continue on with life.

Leaks are very uncommon in a liquid cooling setup (water cooling is a misnomer, as most don't use water at all). So you have nothing to worry about. The fluid I'm using was demonstrated by having a "bath" of it, and then dumping the motherboard et al into the fluid. The PC kept operating and was none the wiser.

Well that makes sense. The phrase "water cooling" is very misleading.

and that 90% of all liquid cooling mistakes and disasters that occur in the first couple days are a direct result of ignoring the manual or not following the manufacturers recommendations for cooling liquids...
