my celorie idel's at 29c's and full load its at 43c's..... what i want to do is slap some water cooling on my celorie, now what i need to know from you people ** hopefully ** is... do i need to insulate around/under my celeron?

Edit: rong smiley
You do not need to insulate a water cooled system because the temperatures you will be at are not close to zero degrees C. What you would be concerned about is if you are operating at or below the dew point which is when condensation will form on your equipment. This will only happen if you are running a TEC or some other means to obtain very low temps. No insul required on a Waterblock/radiator system.

A copper waterblock like from "Danger Den" will be more efficient than the one pictured.

Hope this helps.
THe only picture i could get to work was the 1st of the Senfu watercooling kit, not the greatest from the review i saw. Check out the tips and techniques section on the main page, under watercooling there are a lot of reviews and how to's. But DangerDen ive heard from many is excellent. I myself will be getting my gear from Becooling, well most of it, im buying the pump and res. from other places. But you ant go wrong with a DangerDen kit so im told. Theres a wealth of information in the watercooling tips and techniques section you should look through. Becooling offers a complete set as well if your looking for a "boxed set"
well.. im soory to say.. but those are the ONLY parts i can get my hands on....
i wish i could get em on more......

2 more questions......
