Thread Starter 
hello everyone, i recently joined to look for water cooling ideas. i am an engineering student attending Penn State University. i met friends that had custom builds and liked the idea so i built my own computer last fall. im currently saving up money to buy parts for a water cooling loop. my build doesn't run extremely hot but i want the silence that comes with water cooling. i built my computer to be able to run both windows and Mac OSX. i use the mac as my primary os and windows for gaming. im hoping to get uv orange tubing to add to by black and orange theme later this summer. ill be sure to post when i feel its done and i like it.

Ill be replacing the 3 120 mm cpu fans with a 280 radiator and adding a cougar vortex silent fan for exhaust so it should be quieter when not under full load

Yes that should do the trick then!

Brave Man - I never had the cash or the time to get into Water Cooling, and honestly, scares the schnitzel out of me lol

You should be able to get some cool tubing to fit your color scheme too!

and you are certainly on the right forum - there have been some amazing WC'ers in here
