They aren't the greatest, You might be better off building your own custom water cooling set up for a little bit more $$

I just got my CCFL's today, but unfortunately they don't fit exactly where I want to put them. I noticed that the CCFL tube itself was inside of bigger plastic tube. Would I risk anything by removing the CCFL and mounting it without the plastic outer tube? Thanks guys. Also Enigma, do you have any pictures of how you mounted your switch on the back of your case?

They are not as bad as everyone makes them out to be I think... stock standard they aren't as good as most custom built water cooling rigs... but if you change the barbs, get rid of the quick-disconnect crap, add another radiator etc...they actually run quite nice and don't cost you a arm and a leg.

I've got thermaltake water cooling goodies in both my cases, and they havn't given me a hassle ever, though I have changed a fair few things on them.

I have been looking into water cooling myself. Both of those are the drive bay inserts. They do not get good reviews from actual accomplished water cooling users. They are affordable for water, but don't really perform much better than air and you can find a really nice air cooler for $60-70 that performs better. Everything I have read about water cooling make me believe to stay way from these two units. I know it's really a simple way to start out, but you would do better to start small and piece something together yourself or look into the inexpensive swifttech kits if afraid of the plumbing. Link for ideas. I would piece one together. It will be more rewarding and better quality.
