Water Cool CPU

Someone asked me if it is now feasible to water cool their computer's CPU. It's certainly been possible for many years, but not really very practical for the average person since water cooling a CPU would generally require a significant amount of effort to achieve.

The main advantages of water cooling are that the thermal dissipation potential of water cooling is greater than that of air cooling and also that the cooling process is quieter than air cooling due to the absence of high RPM fans.

Fairly recently all in one water cooling kits became available which make the task of converting your PC to water cooling much simpler. The one which caught my eye is the Thermaltake BigWater system available from Amazon. The BigWater uses a 120mm fan on the radiator to further reduce noise and tends to get good reviews.

Do you have a noise and/or heat problem with your PC?

Good luck water cooling your PC, if you have any comments please let me know and if you have any other questions which you'd like me to answer for free please send them to Ben Dash at
