- Asetek WaterChill V2

The guys over at BIT Tech in the UK have taken a look at Asetek's second coming into the water cooling market with their WaterChill V2. If water is your weapon of choice for PC cooling, then this link is worth following.

A few months back we saw the WaterChill kit from Asetek hit the market as the one of the first complete watercooling kits for the beginner. It was a great stepping stone for anyone who wanted to enter the watercooling scene. Now, five months down the line, Asetek has decided to update the (already popular) kit to hopefully improve its performance.

- OCZ Annihilator Water Cooling Kit

Then on the other side of the globe, the folks at Club Overclocker in the United States investigated OCZ's Annihilator water cooling kit. They discovered it doesn't leak, which is very good news.

Water cooling has been around for a very long time. It has always been one of the best methods for lowering the temps in your computer, without too much risk or cost. Not to mention your cool factor goes up 10 fold when you have a water cooling setup installed. I love the looks I get from non-geeks and geeks when I tell them I have a water cooled computer. Usually the reaction involves some sort of comment about water and electronics. But, I'm happy to report that I've not had a single leak in the two weeks that I've been testing this system. OCZ was kind enough to send us over their latest and greatest water cooling system, the Annihilator.
