In an effort to limit the number of stickies in this section, we've gone ahead and made the Water Cooling Essential Threads. Here you'll find a link to all the important threads for this section. I encourage the water cooling community to have a look and reply with links to any threads we might have missed. We will be updating this thread as time goes by. Special thanks to Burn & ira-k for their contribution.

wasn't there one about the "chemistry of flluids" or something that talked about what to add to the liquid to make it "wetter?"
I think that'd be a good addition.

I'm trying to get a WC gear and performance database going, that I think will help many in comparing performance, but also those interested in getting into WC and want first-hand accounts of results. If it could be reviewed for possible inclusion in this thread, it'd be much appreciated.

Thanks Trans!
