Default Re: watercooling lost its magic

What got me in to overclocking and water cooling in 1999 was Disctributed Computing projects. At the time it was SETI then moved on to a few others and then Distributed Folding until they closed it. You can still see an increase in speed with those programs with overclocking. However the difference water cooling gains in OC on a modern comp is not all that much over good air cooling.

Back then though I had a Asus A7V and a Duron 600@1000mhz and was loving the increase. Air would only get me to 750mhz. Back then that was a HUGE OC. lol
