A water cooling kit for $80. The reviews are pretty good, so I think I'm gonna get it with my next check. I'll post back here once I have it installed.
Water is better, just the thought of water moving under pressure in my case gives me the willies.

Can't get the vision of one drop of water landing in the wrong place, out of my head

Just paranoia, hope you find a good one.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I'm not completely comfortable with the idea, but the reviews on it are pretty good, and the price is good. Seems like a good way for a novice to get into water cooling.

I was going to look into something like that. You would need a non conductive fluid of similar density and properties however, and that may not exist.

That's wierd.. Never gave me any trouble. Well, let's put it this way; as long as the voltage is at least the rated value (according to CPU-z) or a little bit higher, it'll be safe.

You do get non-conductive liquids specially for liquid cooled PC setups... My internet is messing around at the moment, so I can't load the actual page, but a quick Google search showed a couple links that look promising; such as Non-Conductive Coolant and PC ICE Non-Conductive Water Cooling Coolant 32 Ounces CLEAR: CrazyPC Computers.

Oh, and if water (or non-water based) running through pipes isn't quite hardcore enough for you..... Why not submerge your entire PC in oil...? Hehe... Custom PCs by Puget Systems; Mineral Oil Submerged Computer

Seen it before. The concept is cool, but in practice is stupid.

As far as I know, a lot of these mini water cooling systems don't actually use water, but coolant. I'm pretty sure that's what I read when I was reading up on the Thermaltake Symphony mini, anyway.

You would generally use distilled water.

Yeah of course, but how much of the stuff that is 'cool' or 'wierd' in the computer world is actually practical anyway...? Lol.. Computers are not here to make our lifes easier, simpler, or more enjoyable; it's all about bragging rights...
