    llooks like LCLC systems are helping to make WC the dominate cooling thus far.

    Finishing up my Watercooled + TEC Chiller in a month or so. So technically, that is an "Other" as I qualify as "Extreme Cooling" using the TEC Chiller.

    I was bored tonight so I decided to up my over clock on my i5 2500k to 4.8ghz (over the 4.5 i have been using for a while). With my air cooling my 4.5 never made it over 70c. Running at 4.8 it get to 81c. I think I may switch to water soon.

    Picked up an Antec Khuler 620 last night and installed it on my i7 930. Very pleased!

    Have air coolers and water cooling setups. Air is nice and easy but water is where its at for 24/7 rig. Thinking about a slush box for cheap "extreme" cooling.

    Other for me. The only system I really sit down at when I'm not at work is my benching station. It's usually subzero whether it's chilled water or a CPU pot.

    I use an air cooling on my main computer, Dice on my seconary (which has all-compatable parts for my main)

    I've got a few chunks of copper and have been thinking about water cooling for a while though, i'd use it on my secondary if I ever made a block. (which is covered in vaseline atm, no leak worries lol)

    I just finished putting in my WC system, it took me almost 2 days to get it all set up right as it was my first system; I upped my speed and voltages and it still maintains a temp 10-15c lower than with my CM 212 EVO.
