You can hear your PC from 12ft away?

One advantage of watercooling is that you can get the same temps and make it near silent.

Basic physics.... CPU temperature is ALWAYS higher than ambient with non-heat pump cooling. Ambient directly affects your CPU temperature as well. A 40C CPU temp in a 30C ambient room will be around 50C CPU temp in a 40C ambient room.

Honestly, wc isn't really necessary with Penryn or zee ever faithful Kentsfield. So long as you have a good fan and a TRUE, you are set.

WC isn't really going to give a person a better oc. People do it for the fun of it and because they have the option to turn their fans down without expecting a temp spike.

no. CPu will be higher than ambient. Unless you have very good w/c or phase change (or TEC) you can get sub-ambient temps.

I'd say it depends on the chip more than anything. Most dual core processors (especially the new 45nm) overclock with very gradual temp increases. Air cooling in almost all instances (except crazy overclocks) is more than sufficient.

A top water cooling setup can provide better sustained idle and load temps with quad though.

Let me stress "top" though. A, $150 WC "kit" is likely to provide much worse temps than a decent air cooler. Even a mid range water cooling setup is about on par with a top air cooling HSF (TRUE, Tuniq, Thermalright SI-128 SE, OCZ Vendetta II, Xigamatek, etc).

It really depends on what you want.

I've built several cooling systems based on water and they are fun, quiet and if you put together the right setup, quite efficient.

I don't find them cost effective though.

sitting 8" away from my PC, i do not hear a thing. I agree with what everyone here is saying, it really depends on the chip. I keep my q6600 (at a high vcore) lower in temps than any air cooling did, and better than my Freezone cooler ever did. So to me, it was a smart move.

What setup does your friend have for watercooling? Not all setups are the same.
Also, for ambient temps, if your room is colder than your frineds, then your temps on air will be cooler in your house than his, so it is not a complete apples to apples comparison.

His house is 10 degrees cooler than mine at all times he is a lazy person that sits home is subzero temps!!!! im not lying he wont go outside on hot days LOL i have one airconditoner in my whole house he has 3!!! but also i think the way i set my fans up made a huge difference all fans suck in, except for the 120mm in the back which is at 100% the other are lower speeds so the air coming out is more than air going so hot air doesnt sit! make sense or am i over thinking and it didnt matter i set it up that way?
