"Portable/LAN" Watercooling Setup?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I'm parting together a new build for the winter. My current rig sounds like a freakin Vacuum its so loud - my friends & wife make fun of me for it. But I've got a Q6600 at 3.6GHz w/ TRUE, 2x Raptor RAID 0, 4xWD RAID 0+1, and 8800 gtx w/ TR hr-03 OC'd by 10%. I've got headphones on most of the time, but I'd still like to have a quieter, yet cool OC'd PC.

My current rig also weighs like 100lb (exaggerating, but its friggin heavy).

I would like to be able to actively LAN my comp a little more often than currently, and am looking a little bit more into LAN friendly cases. However, I'm also a performance junky, and have really wanted to do a water cooled setup for a long time, for the performance and volume.

Is there any way to make these two ideas compatible? I'm researching full setups for build so anything is game (reasonable prices tho).

P.S. - I've never built a watercooled setup before, but have significant computer building/tweaking/troubleshooting experience. Should I just pay someone who's done it before to install all the WC array? Or should I take the risk, invest many hours of research and installation, and go for it?

P.S.S - Approximate costs for full WC setup?

YOu can do your own watercooling setup. I had no experience on mine when I first did it and it worked out perfect. Just super frustrating sometimes.

Antec has that LAN boy case. I've never used it, but it looks alright and I think you can put a few rads in it too.
