Hi all! I'm planning out my first watercooling build and in doing research I keep coming back to these forums. Whether it's about tubing plasticizer, koolance parts, case showcase threads, fluid discussions, I figured I might be better off just joining!

I've been building for a long while, from around 1998. Last time I overclocked was around that time, too, with a 440BX board and a giant Alpha heatsink with loud as hell Deltas for an 8% gain on a Pentium II, less than 45 MHz (and eventually wound up killing the board due to the weight of the Slot-1 cooler over time deforming the contacts). As I got a job and got busy I started building off purpose-built machines (NAS, Home Theater, MAME, casual gaming) I didn't take a whole lot of time to optimize because everything was just good enough. The struggle and extra cost for good parts (K CPU and Z/X chipsets) just didn't seem worth it.

But with VR on the horizon I definitely want to get my toes back in to the higher end of things and play around with water so here I am!
