From Air to Watercooling Guide @ msfn@ 2004/05/19
With the hot summer months ahead of us I got tired of my PC running in the high 38c-45c range. After doing a study on the top products available, I decided the time was now. Watercooling has many advantages over air. One of the most widely held superstitions is that watercooling will make your CPU very cold. This is not true. In fact watercooling’s main advantage is to keep your temperatures at a set rate, unlike air cooling, which has a large fluctuation in temperatures.
Now don't get me wrong. Watercooling does cool your PC extremely well but like most things, it only performs as good as the products used. Many cooling kits are trash and companies trick consumers into thinking they are getting a great kit for their money.
