Default Water Cooling

to all the owners of custom PCs here. does water cooling help alot for overclocking? whenever i play source, my pc gets louder as the cpu gets hotter. my idle is around 33C though so i guess its not that bad.

is it worth going water cooling?

im running p4 2.4 800fsb @ 3.2 1000+fsb

i wana get to 3.6 @ 1200fsb

My roommate has it, pretty nice. I'm just too worried of water spilling. I'd say if you were a hardcore gamer, then do it.

I have my 3.2ghz running @ around 3.65ghz

idle temp is about 31-32 and usually when gaming I get up to around 45

What kind of heatsink and fan are you using? Before doing any water cooling you might want to try an aftermarket one.

It's more for bling, nice fans and a heatsink are fine.

i have a thermaltake case with 7 fans (2 front, 2 side, 2 read, 1 top) and thermaltake copper fan with auto speed selection depending on heat.

I did a DIY watercooling setup and I still couldn't break 3ghz stable.
(P4 2.4 800fsb)

You can do a DIY kit for &lt; $100 though. Get a heater core from Autozone. Order the heatsink. Go to homedepot for the plastic tubing. Order an inline water pump (you won't find one in stores, I tried) Then just buy a switch at autozone. I carefully cut and filed one of the bay covers in the front of my case and put a switch to turn the pump on and off.
