I'm often asked how to build a water-cooled PC and what components are compatible with what. Mainly what frightens people is the assumed complexity of the cooling system compared to air cooling.
Having just completed the labs test for Issue 69 of Custom PC
involving numerous CPU coolers, I can honestly say that mounting a waterblock like the D-Tek FuZion V2
is an awful lot easier than many CPU coolers I've seen.
In fact, the FuZion V2 costs a lot less than most air-coolers too. Alright, I'll concede that you need to fork out for pumps, radiators and reservoirs too, but the fact remains.
