watercooling in this website seems to be as dead as.
i suggest going to www.xtremesystems.com/forums
there is a guy there who has watercooled his new 6801 Abit board including photos and diagrams.
Thanks. I'm more into quiet systems rather than "xtreme" systems - specifically I want an ultra-quiet but powerful system (that still looks good)... But that board looks much more useful than this one.
Anyone can make an almost silent (but weak) system. And anyone can make a powerful (but noisy) overclocked system. But where's the challenge? Now try to have both, now that's a challenge.
And to do that, watercooling is the way forward.
So I'm surprised by the lack of activity here. I guess that people who want an ultra-quiet but powerful system are a small minority.
p.s. I've found a decent NB and SB cooler and will have something similar to those guys on xtreme systems. Specifically, going for the "Alphacool NexXxoS NB-SLI 1 Northbridge" on my SB and the "Danger Den DD-680i Chipset Block" for my NB - those two look ideal for a 680i board.
