Default Re: watercooling lost its magic

I've had WCing on my CPU for almost 2 years now, but only recently added the GPU. Increasing my system's performance AND simultaneously making it quieter may not be magic, but I'm awfully happy with the combination.

This is the area for WCing over the next year or two, as quietly cooling a vidcard is much harder than a CPU. Of course, average users don't need monster GPUs, and ATI and Nvidia eventually will focus on performance-per-watt.

But perhaps hot and noisy Xbox 360s and PS3s will bring some people back to PC gaming. I'm sure that lots of normal users would be impressed by near-silent PCs that can outgame consoles and replace Tivos.
