Only takes <3hr for me to drain my loop, clean components, put it back together and refill.

Don't know why so many people claim it's an "all-day job" :)

Bought one today, couldn't be happier with my purchase. My PC is eerily near-silent now.

Thanks for your reply. I'll see if I can find thermochill's radiators over here (Sweden). But basically a good multi-fanned low rpm radiator is the recommended way to go? What about quick couplings? Avoid or not? Since I'm going for an external radiator (and maybe a large passive one, have to think...

Upside down wouldn't be a problem, but let all the air bubbles escape from the radiator during the fill session first before bolting the radiator onto the case in that position.

Which brings up another subject, how do you silence a Harley? RPG-7. It'll be loud for a couple of seconds, but you'll never hear it again.

The guy lives in Germany, maybe European links would be more appropriate :D Don't know how loud the fans are on this external kit (Their radiators are designed to work well with low-speed fans, though), but they're my favorite Euro watercooling manufacturer: http://www.aquatuning.de/product_info.php...

when I was 8 (this was in 1998): A pre-built eMachine mATX tower with a Celeron 400MHz, 32MB RAM, 4GB HDD and an extremely loud PSU that was only slightly louder than the 5000000000RPM fan on the Celeron. Three years later, we replaced it with an Athlon XP system. It felt really fast back then, but ...
