    You're quite welcome! The "all in one" CPU water cooling kits are a great way to get started. The real bebefit is the room you have in your case after you remove the monstrous air cooling setup and install the waterblock. I've seen the difference and it's amazing.

    I've already found a shop in The Netherlands that sells the Intel one. I like that one because the fan RPM is adjustable. Found a shop that sells them for only a €80 ex. post and packaging. That's more that you pay in the USA. But not very expensive in my opinion. I just might try it.

    I will be interested to see how you mount the fan for one of those liquid coolers. I have a full tower case, but I don't see any space big enough to mount it, especially if you install one of the Corsair models with two fans. They say "easy installation" but I don't see how without major customization!

    most newer full size towers have 2 fan openings on the rear ,one below the other .i would assume it goes there ,as the fans would blow into the radiator of the device.
    like this one .

    My case has a 120mm fan opening in the rear, so I'll mount the radiator/fan assy there...

    Usually the radiator just screws into the case fan so the two items are stacked together. When you have 2 fans like the corsair, it is just 3 things hooked together.

    It still takes a lot of room. Part of reason why I don't use liquid cooling. Air cooling is sufficient for my overclock and usage.

    I see. I didn't think of using the rear fan opening. That would make mounting a single radiator/fan easy, but I wouldn't be able to do the double fan, as the rest of the back is taken up with PCIE slots, USB ports, eSATA ports, etc., unless I could use the spaces for the two 230 mm fans on the top of the case.

    I just noticed this. So you can actually stack one fan/radiator on top of the other.

    A lot depends on your case. Newer cases seem to have allowed for the installation of the liquid units. On my Corsair 400r mine is a single and mounts on the rear fan opening. My case has two 140mm side fans that blow cool air directly onto my motherboard without a standard air cooler in the way. My old system (wife has it now) had a large single 200mm side fan and after mounting the radiator the edge of the fan would hit the radiator and I could not get the side back on. I was able to mount a 140mm fan on the side and it now has enough clearance. Even some after market air coolers are so big they wont fit in some cases.
