Default Watercooling Survey

I've been watercooling my PCs for five years and have been very pleased - my experience has been trouble free. However, a recent survey by another website indicated a problem rate that floored me. I'd like to survey our watercooling readers to shed some more light on this issue.

Below are a series of questions - respondents can cut and paste into an email. I will post aggregate results only. For responding, I will pick one email at random and send a White Water waterblock. Thanks!

I bet you can't put our system up side down and it will keep on clicking

1) I fix my cars, motorcycles and boats.
2) I repair everything in my house; plumbing, electrical, A/C.
3) I build a few systems since the 286's day.
4) I will even put a server inside an A/C'ed cabinet.

I love water cooled engines; my motorcyle is watercooled and they don't require much maintenance plus they run in the rain and snow. Water cool PC? No thanks. It would be like married to a high maintenance woman. One wife is good enough for me, others are girl friend, mistress, concubine and hooker. If you ask, you are too young.

Been there done that.

Addition -

If Intel and AMD will make the chip bigger; big enough that water passages can be incorporated inside the circuit resulting to hack a lot better thermal transfer as in water cooled engine, that is my consideration.

The easier way will be to make them run cooler, like the current Venice and Intel M cores. After all, I am buying / using a processor not an internal combusion engine.
