I think around summer time i may go water cooled, but just for the cpu, unless i can find a good stock air cooler that suits me. Now my question is once you guys have went from air to water, what was a round a bout temp decrease under load? People with all chip sets are welcome to answer but i am mainly looking for my chip set i7 920.

thank you in advance.

I saw about 10-15c drops in load temps going from a Thermaltake V1 to water.

You need to do maintenance, usually twice a year. A complete teardown should probaly be at least once a year.

It is impossible to run under ambients with conventional watercooling. The air cooling radiator will only cool the water to the ambient temp not under the ambients. I think that was what your reply meant????
