    HELP!! Water Cooling

    Hi

    I need help. I want to install water cooling to cool my cpu, im sick and tired of the noise from the stock fan.
    i just want a basic water cooling kit that will do me fine with a little bit of overclocking. was considering the Corsair H40 or H60? Budget around $60 - $80

    Either will be an improvement.

    The H60 fits your budget, has a copper cold plate and a slightly slower fan (thus not as loud). It is also typically more available AFAIK. So that is what I would get.

    If you are still using the stock cooler, you could spend alot less and get a near silent air solution if your not overclocking. Such as this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835207004 which I currently have cooling the cpu in my sig.

    See i do want to overclock so the solution is watercooling with the H60, would you hear it badly or just a little?

    I would only suggest the H70 if you add fan shrouds.

    It should sort of.

    In my mind these are just "high end air cooling" units. Think flex heatpipes.

    They aren't like a typical water cooling loop at all.

    Also the h70 is out of the OP's posted budget.

    Really? I get concerned if I can't hear my fans from at least 30 feet away. I like to know it's on.

    My work PC is totally silent, but I don't think there is actually anything in the box...

    Fans too loud...what's this world coming to?

    Fry's.

    Shrouds = extenders. They reduce the air noise by putting space between the fan and radiator. This also helps move more air through the fins, further reducing the cooling capacity of the radiator. I didn't spend $20 a piece on mine. You can "gut" any old 120mm fan and use it instead. I had to pick up custome length screws from a hardware store, too.
