One of the most basic issues with water cooling is the amount of flow to use. While it is extremely easy to calculate a reasonable value, I've yet to see it discussed elsewhere. The specific heat of water is roughly 4.18 kJ/kg-°C. One watt equals one joule per second. This means that 4.18 kilowatts would raise the temperature of one kilogram of water at the rate of one degree Celcius per second.
