By mistake, I ended up on a 'Modders' web site. Fancy gear for 'Gamers' and 'Over-clockers' I guess. Came across info on water-cooling for CPU's - plastic pipes, copper radiators, fans and headers for the CPU's etc.. A bit like a cooling systen for a car - minus the anti-freeze!

Apart from the risk of mixing water and computers, are there any benefits to this type of cooling? Would this help with the overall operation of the Toaster? Anyone have any experience with it?

I guess the term 'Cool' will apply here!

Silent running seems to be a major benefit, and perhaps extended life for your hard drive? Wonder how the performance of the CPU's are affected?

There is a pile of wierd stuff out there!
