Posting with correct grammar helps us A LOT.

Don't bother with the reviews, the only people that write them only post because they found some tiny flaw that no one has or ever will have.

Be very careful with liquid cooling systems. There is a chance for things to go horribly wrong. Leaks may occur and corrosion is also possible. Unless you're overclocking, a good air cooler will work just as good.

You want to know the weirdest thing? I have never seen a temperature difference on my old (or ANY) CPU between 2.1GHz and 3GHz... Not 1F not .01F no difference... The weirdest thing.

Regarding your actual post, if it's distilled water it won't conduct unless it sits on your video card for 24 hours gathering dust. Also nearly all fluids contain an anti-conductive material. Plus it doesn't do damage UNLESS it's on.

My experience with water cooling is limited, but distilled water does not conduct electricity as well as standard tap or bottled water. That's not to say it doesn't, however. Water-based cooling is more labor intensive, complex, and requires more maintenance than an air-based cooler. As I said in another post on the forum, most users do not need water cooling. If you really want to geek out, go for Peltier cooling. It will be expensive and inefficient, but it is a different way to cool a PC.
