cool, so liquid cooling makes it so your computer is completely quite right?
does it replace the need for all fans?

I wish we had a liquid cooling system, that sounds just cool to say :P

Also we have a different hard drive because the old one ran out of space, I think this one is 500gb, and we also have a new graphics card but I can't remember what it is called so I will get back to you. Our computer is still awful though, the processor is disgraceful.

liquid cooling still needs fans. it needs fans to cool the radiators.

but keep in mind that while it cools cpu and/or anything you have directly hooked up to the watercooling, there are other components in your pc that still need to be cooled by fnas: hard drives, motherboard heatsinks, ram, etc.

i put an antec psu and a radeon hd 4350 in my compaq cq5107c PC (that i got for $30 w/o hdd and a broken video port on the mobo)...

I don't know much about liquid cooling. What do they usually cool down?

Also, you got the motherboard for $30? if so, that may be why there was a broken video port xD
