frostmeister said:well, excuse me for chipping in again with a small point; Going on roadwarrior's and keironholden's points, regarding gold and silver reflecting heat, the only reason silver tarnishes is because of levels of sulphur in the atmosphere. Since the industrial revolution, sulphur levels have been enough to tarnish silver over time. Before the 1700's silver never used to tarnish. Mind you, I don't think they had waterblocks back then.
Silver wouldn't tarnish on the important part contacting the CPU die though, so I can't see a silver waterblock having it's performance reduced because of tarnishing.
