    As I said it's a lot of money which you have to spend since I am ASSUMING you have a great job of which to do this. As for now I don't. So I will not take any risks in doing so. Though still if I want more speed instead of risking, I'll would just buy the chip for the faster speed, that's just me. I would only do the water cooling for the looks, as it is impressive to look at your work that you have accomplished and what you have created.

    Wow, if you told me that in the other thread I would of told you to stop using it asap! It would definitely not have happened if you did that bud. Any open air pockets will trap condensation, no matter how small. Sure is voids the warranty but it does clean off completely with some compressed air and some rubbbing alcohol. With the asetek kit they give you a HUGE tube of dielectric grease and special insulation for the hole in the socket. This is a must do bud, if you sell it make sure to let the guy know. Damn, if I only asked you earlier, I feel at some fault you lost that cpu..

    Yeah man, that's definitely a rotten thing to do. I still can't believe they don't say anything about that.
    Hope you work things out

    I know I am quoting myself but for any one interested I just got a reply back from Drew Gilkey at fluid XP and it is Water soluble so if you were to cool it you would have a problem with water as it would mix in with the fluid and eventally probably short something out if not everything.

    He aslo had concern about the capacitors and fluid under chips, so you could lacquer the board or otherwise coat it, which is what some people do with there custom Vapor Phase coolers to keep from shorting there boards out

    Use a conformal spray, works great. Just mask off the socket and slots and spray the board front and back. And grease that socket real good!

    For a min this thread had me confused. I was thinking, "Didn't Mike get a core 2 duo cpu, so why would he get angry about a p4 dying?" Now I know why :lol:
