hey, can you add the OCN water cooling club to the list?

It has tons of great Ideas (with pics) for people who are looking to get into water.

I am a noob when it comes to watercooling and I went through this thread and only got more confused. What I'd like to know is how safe is watercooling? How is it done? Do you need a specific case? Do you need to mod your case? Anything that I can look at? I'm like total noob and don't understand most of the terms or what is needed to build a watercooling kit/system

Again, an old guide, this is why we still get so many questions from guys new to OCN. We really need to do some updating.

There's old and there's new. They will always ask questions, the same questions over and over because they have never made a loop before and they are a little gun shy. Once they do one they realize how simple it really is.

You sound so inviting.

But another thread scared me: "Hi, some of the seasoned wc guys have done up a solid FAQ sticky. Wc unfortunately isn't as easy as buying the best aircooler and slapping it on the CPU. It takes quite a bit of prep so you don't end up wasting your money or blowing up your pc.:"

How MUCH prep time are we talking here?

And how much would a good setup cost?

probably a few hours for bleeding the loop/ checking for leaks and if you shop used and look for deals you can get a good cpu loop for $250
