is it possible to add a water cooling system to a case? i have a Cooler Master ATC-201-SX case, it's all aluminum inside and out, and i don't want to replace it (i'm not looking to replace something that was $180 or $200 with a new case that's gonna cost even more, i'd rather add, since i like this case). if i can, can someone tell me what tools i'd need to be able to do it? if you need to know what i have, i have a P4 2.53 GHz proc, a GF4 Ti 4600, PC-1066 RDRAM, Asus P4T533-C mobo, and a 7200 RPM HDD.

Yes, thats what most people do. DangerDen sells some good stuff and they do have blocks for Socket 478. http://www.dangerden.com/mall/kits_P4478.asp

Your going to need to choose a waterblock,radiator,pump,tubing and the liquids you will be using. I would recommend getting the Maze 3, a heatercore(if you can fit it into your case) and an eheim pump, all this stuff can be found on DD. A combination of distilled water and water wetter will probably be best.

Dont get the res from DD. People have been having problems with it.
Also don't buy that rad! Buy a car heatercore instead but you'll need to do some soldering. If you don't feel up to it, get the radiator called: "The Heatercore" from DangerDen, it's the best rad they sell.
