Guys, new awesome idea that propably won't work. WATERCOOLING. I dont know ANYTHING about it and I don't have the money or knowledge to get something 'real'. But I'd really like to get into it some day. But for now, how about getting a complete watercooling kit for my CPU? Im thinking of the NorthQ 3590 WC kit. But will it fit, or do I have to put it outside of the case?

Or would it just be plain dumb to get this instead of a DK?
OK, I don't watercool nor have I ever. I don't know the first thing about it. But
, I have heard that this is tough case to get a WC loop installed into. I'm sure if you had a good idea of what you were doing, and got all the right parts that you know will fit, it can be done. In fact, there's a decent setup in this thread, which belongs to r11.
With that said, and coming from someone who has only aircooled, I thing aircooling would be much easier in this case, but watercooling can be done.
EDIT: here's a good starting point with r11's build: LINK
double EDIT: Saw the loop you linked, and from everything that I've heard, pre-built loops are notorious for poor build quality. If you are going to do watercooling, pretty much everyone on this forum is going to say to build a custom loop. With that said, Corsair is about to release the H50
, which has gotten mixed, but overall good reviews so far. But the stigma of pre-built loops is still out thereEdited by seven9st surfer - 8/4/09 at 4:05pm
