I decided I'm going with watercooling for my next rig which I will be building soon. I read some of the resources on the main page but I would like to learn a little more. So if you guys have other good resources where I can learn more. Also please recommend parts. I was looking at the swiftech mcw462-b waterblock is it good? what should I look for in a waterblock?:confused: Thanks

Right now i have the swiftech watercool kit with their MCW372-B waterblock and have no complaints. I also picked up their FS020-SM3 case which the kit was designed to work with, made setting it up a breeze.

On the average my temps are 30c on cpu and 20c for the system, the highest it got was 34c and that was on a hot day, it was 80 degrees in my room. Since my room is on the chilly side right now my temp is 25c & 16c for the system.

Hoot has written an article on a water block shootout. Keep checking the main OC site for it. In it were the Swifty and the Maze2.

If you read all that in one night you eyes will probably bug out. hehe there's a wealth of information out there. Do a search on any search engine and you can get more / less spsfic to find what your looking for. Or post here. Chances are someone knows.
