Anyway, not everyone gets into wcing for performance benefits/ ocing.

Sorry it just struck me wrong. The sad truth is a good portion of the people that buy watercooling (and many other computer components) do so to be cool or have something to talk about. It's sad that 90% of the worlds computing power is wasted on AOL and Solitaire everyday.
edit - forgot to comment on polarflo i think that they make some of the best looking blocks but i have a major problem with companies that spend more on looks than effectiveness. i mean a waterblock has one purpose to exist, cool a heatsource. how can they spend so much time on appearance when the performance is subpar. if apple stopped trying to make their computer look like a stupid piece of art and make it a kickass computer they might nab more than 1% of the market. but then again they have proved to make dumb mistakes over and over.
Well it shows you're far away from Germany. There watercooling is (for more than 90% of people) the best way to get a silent PC. And it's the first, and sometimes only reason to go watercooling, for them. That's why their systems are low performing, but small, and with an emphasis on silence: small pumps, small tubes, small waterblocks, and few undervolted quiet fans, or very frequently now, passive cooling (zalmann, etc..).jenkx said:The blocks look cool. But like everyone has said, a water block is not worth jack if it does not cool well. Noise reduction is one thing. But to put water in a computer just to reduce noise if pretty risky. The main reason for water in computer is to reduce heat for added performance. Anything else such as noise reduction is a good byproduct.
