Default Will water cooled PC's become mainstream?

Submitted by Teus, thank you!

"Do you believe we’re moving towards water-cooled computers, or will the manufacters (especially Intel) realize that if they keep making a dash to the fastest CPU’s they’ll only push the lifetime of the CPU’s back and make the cooling methods & power bill a horror?

Can’t say the mobile desktop AMD CPU’s weren’t a success (n/o for oc’ing), and intel is also bringing it’s mobiles to the desktop markt"

I think there are three groups who will use a wc:
the overclockers
the case modders
those who want peace and quiet.

but the big mass will stick to good ol' air cooling.

And isn't Intel already taking a different approach? their dothans offer a nice combination of low power consumption, low heat output and top performance.

It's still a risk to use water and electricity together, so WC will never get in workstations.
Plus, Intel has already tried to improve the cooling (BTX).

does distilled water become conductive after that it's been in your wc loop?

I think not, it's still the same water, noting changed (except some anti alg liquid or something like that).
Or maybe the erosion of the waterblock will make the water conductive. But you have to wait a few 1000 years for that I think

yes, because of the dirt particles everywhere it won't be non-conductive anymore

What will be your budget expense for next year if you are the IT manager in a medium size companY (sales less than $1 Billion per year) with say 1,000 PC's using water cooling?

Budget expense covers:
1) Repair maintenance in labor.
2) Repair maintenance in parts.
3) Loss time due to down time.

If W/C will become mainstream; when do you think Dell will offer W/C systems in Best Buy; Corporate Purchase?

How do you figure repair warranty on Dell; HP/Compaq; Gateway, etc?

If you can convince Corporates to buy W/C systems; you would become a mulit-millionaire overnight. I wish you the best of luck; come back here to visit the peasant (me) from time to time.
