Southbridge I tried a local 40mm fan/chipset combo but gave up soon after booting that.
Then I blew the board
Now, its water
Your water-cooling idea is quite gutsy!
Sadly, my talent on modding is as good as me trying to eat rice with chopsticks xD
I don't know if you already finished that block...if so, let us know how it worked out!
As for me, I am keeping liquids away from my computer hardware...last time I tried such an attempt with an "idiot-proof" entry liquid cooler (read: a crappy Coolit Domino ALC unit), I ended up breaking off one of the pipes, to which the company claimed they were nearly impossible to break.
I surely proved them wrong. Sadly my hardware sacrificed such a conclusion with a slow and painful[?] death.
Plus the green liquid it had smelled TERRIBLE! I am guessing it was Anti-Freeze.
