CelticWhisper Posted January 21, 2005 Posted January 21, 2005 First-time poster, so go easy on me, yeah? Well, I'm building my brother a new computer, as he'll be graduating grammar school this spring and he's certainly earned it. The two big factors I'm going for (aside from longevity and overall oomph) are silent and cool. I've read up on the benefits of liquid/water cooling and its impact on both temperature and noise, and was hoping to employ it to keep his case quiet for late-night use, and cool for extended design, compiling, gaming, rendering, graphics, or anything else CPU-intensive. He'll be running an AMD64, which I hear does tend to run hot, so ideally I'd like to water-cool it to keep it within a safe range. The thing is, I've heard a lot of people say that in order to properly water-cool a case, cutting or otherwise modifying the case is required. I'm planning on using the full-tower model of silent case (Lian-li brand) that ThinkGeek offers. Since structural integrity is, in this case, crucial to quiet operation, my question is this: Is there any way to have an all-internal cooling solution that doesn't require me to slice and dice the enclosure to make it work? Thank you very, very much in advance for your help. I really appreciate it. Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
