Im looking into upgrading my current cpu cooler (Zalman 7000B-CU ) which idles around 43-45 celcius to liquid cooling. I have a few quesion regarding liquid cooling.

1.What are some name brand Liquid Cooling System?
2.What are some problems you have heard of or experience with liquid cooling?
3.Does it decrease the temp of ur cpu dramatically?
4.Has anyone heard of or experienced a hose breaking and frying the computer?

I probably wouldnt bother, a good kit costs a fair bit of cash easily 200 quid for a half decent one and its not exactly something you can skimp on either as cheap kits are either unreliable, easily broken, noisy or have poor cooling.

You can always upgrade the HSF and systems fans in your current system there is newer zalmans than you have that cool better your temps are a little high(unless you have a hot CPU) for a zalman but they are good maybe improve the airflow in your case(tidy wires and add or replace fans) and clean the case and refit the HSF but with some fresh thermal compound(AS5 preferably) should probably shave of a few degrees.
