Anyone here think that it is a need and not just a want? I have two fans right now that came with the computer. Is anyone's computer water-cooled?

I'd don't know of anyone that has or needs water cooling. I suppose if you do a ton of multitasking, but really I cant think of anything that would overheat your pc that fans couldnt cover.

Water Cooling is a great cooling mechanism, but it can cause major flaws. If you're water cooling breaks, it has a good chance of destroying the inside of the computer because water conducts electricity.

Either way I think Water Cooling is neither great nor a necessity. Use fans, they are old school.

I guess if it was under the warranty cuz I also exchanged my small form factor for a big one since it was acting up on me and I bought it only a couple of days.

Vasuki, that is a warranty. You don't get insurance on your computer. The warranty provides full replacement if the computer fails by an accidental cause. I think that water cooling is neither a necessity nor a good thing.

Depending where you live (the ambient air temp), a high end air cooling system can work the same as water cooling. It is cheaper, and it does not have any hastles.

Water cooling; worry if it is going to leak all the time, have to replace the water/coolent periodically.

Phase cooling is where it's at if you are an OCer.

Lol or benchmark liquid nitro.
