    The kit is a Thermaltake Aquarius 2 that I finagled off my friend's computer.
    I'm not done yet. I was gonna cut a hole on the top of my case and close it up, but I decided to wait until I get a bigger radiator, new cpu water block and gfx water block.
    All in all, it's not a starter watercooling kit. It's pretty compact, easy to install.

    I just find it hillarious that there are water cooling units for computers. I mean come on! Can't you design something that doesn't have heat as a byproduct!?!?

    Energy = heat.

    Cars used to be air cooled. :)

    That particular kit cools OK. It's not the super cooling some people look for. It's better than air cooling. Performs a little better than the most extreme air cooling stuff.

    :cool: I have never seen a water cooled setup in such a small place.


    Just out of curiosity, how much noise do those pumps make? Is it comparable to that of a regular air setup?

    My computer is about 18" from me right now. I can't here the pump. I could if I turn everything off and listen to it. If I stick my head closer, I could hear it. I quiet though like a hum. My fans are louder.

    I've seen 2 other watercooled Shuttles online.

    CPU temp right now is 39C from just surfing the net and shit. My room is pretty cool though. It gets to around 45C under load last time I checked.

    Oh, I was unaware that the CPU's these days are powered by a controlled explosive reaction.

    If there was no architecture to build from, I bet the chips designed today wouldn't run so hot.

    Faster chips = more heat.

    :squint:

    You have a bigger case. It's easier for you have more space and can put more fans.
    Mined use to get around 45C idle w/ air cooling.

    They're working on it (fibre chips, laser chips, etc...) but it's still very experimental and rediculously expensive.

    I'm prettty sure it would improve
    I'm pretty sure it will improve the temp in your computer a little bit.
