    They're amazing. I've seen one cooling a fast system (X800 XTPE, Pentium M @ 2.4 Ghz, and NB) at 4-5 degrees above ambient. If you can afford one, and have space to mount it, by all means get one. This system had an aquastream 12 volt rev. 3 pump, and no fans. The system could not be heard at more than a couple of inches away from the front grill.

    yeah i noticed the price but i am going for a COMPLETELY FANLESS Wood computer system! i have a wc'd system right now with the rad inside but to get enuf air to it i actually have a 3 tornado's doing the work due to the overclocking i am doing! but now i am finshed with thtat and would like a SILENT gaming system not OC'd but if so the WC sys can handle it!

    I have the Maxi version of the Konvect-O-Matic and will be using it soon in a passive and active system. If you're buying one now, see if you can get ahold of the Pro version. The pro version has more fins on the fins and supposedly cools much beter than the non pro versions.

    Temps aren't EVERYTHING.
    The most important thing is how much changes between idle and load, since thats where the real cooling efficency is.

    Well your link isnt working for me but i will keep trying! as for the temps between load and idle they jump almost 10 degrees celsius! i might put an extra small radiator as an in between radiotor between the cpu and the gpu

    This will probably be the series:

    rad>cpu>N/B>rad#2>gpu>res>pump

    and yes that will be two radiators in the system it is overkill but i have an idea for them!

    the one i have selected i think... are the pro version but i might be worng... The only place that i can find to order them is frozencpu.com. is there any other place that you can think of that also might be cheaper

    You know what really rocks? I built that system. Plays HL2 like a dream, BTW.

    I work for Puget Custom Computers. While it's not possible to order a system like that directly from our website, you can E-mail one of our customer service reps, and we can get an order like that one set up for you.

    I build the computers. Yes, it's a really nice job. Not to mention that the benefits are great.

    That particular build was interesting... The motherboard is upside-down, at the bottom of the case. The PSU is at the very top of the case, with space for a hard drive standing on its side between the two. The ATX 4 pin connector is stretched really tight. Another cm further, and it wouldn't reach. Also, getting that massive radiator full was hard. I still think there's some air in the system somewhere.

    Still, 41-43C is very respectable for a system under load. Of course, at this point it was dissipating 120W. You have to calculate how many Watts your system will put out to get a comparison.

    ahhh.... calculate.... damnit that involves math! will you do it for me i jsut got done with my physics test!

    as for the temps.... it idles at 31-33 degrees then jumps to 41 degrees i want to kleep it close to the 30's under load and idle so therefore more water mean less temp change! more room in my res and more radiator!

    Not really. Although a larger ammount of water takes longer to warm up, once it has, you will find that temperatures are much the same as with a smaller ammount of water in your loop.

    The most effective way to get cooler temps is through bigger rads, really.
