Does anyone know quite a bit about water cooling, and maybe have a link or 2 to an article on the internet describing it and what not? I'm thinking about going to it but I'd like to know a little bit more about it first and what not but I have no clue where to look.
What do you need to know? Also, what are you expecting to do with water cooling? Like heavy overclocking or just a quiet pc?
Just a quiet PC. Mine gets hot enough as it is and it's pretty loud. I want to cool it down better/more efficiently.

Here is one that I would recommend: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835108076. It's a very good water cooling system, I've seen people take Q6600s to 4.0ghz on this. But also it's not meant to go crazy, like it doesn't have a triple rad and all that stuff. I highly recommend this kit. It's by Swiftech, so that's a plus already, it's got a double rad, a very good pump and water block, and it comes with everything you need and maybe a little more.
I've never really been a fan of water cooling. Somehow the thought water running that close to my components makes me iffy.
Now this would be cool though:
i think you can do that with distilled water too as long as theres absolutely nothing in it, i wouldnt try though :P
and thanks for that link french, i was looking on some websites for external kits and things with everything i need already in it (i dont know every single part i might need so ones that have everything are a huge help)
watercooling seems like some pretty complex business, you should also take a look at better and quieter fans and bigger better heatsinks. http://www.frozencpu.com/ seems to have a good selection of stuff.
ive got a water cooling system built from parts i bought
though most of them are swiftech parts.
as for what to fill it up with, i'd recommend de-ionized water with HydrX
