I am thinking about water cooling my pc when I build it but I am not too sure about how reliable they are. Like is there a risk of one leaking and if so how do I prevent it? And how do they compare to the fan cooling system for a computer? And how much would a decent one cost and where can I buy one?

Hi
welcome to GTG
Are you looking to do overclocking or is the room your pc is in very hot?
most of the time when poeple use the water cooling for there pc is is when there doing high end overclocking or the room the pc is in is super hot there is always a chance for leaking with water lines. if you get a good copper core like thisCLICK HERE you should be fine this is the one I have and my system runs at 39c with two case fan one set up going in and the other pushing out.

so would you recomend them over just the fans in a pc? and how high of a risk is there for leakage? Also is there a way for the components to not be destroyed if wet?

Hi
any time you put water close to a pc there is a risk. I would not recommend a water cooling system unless your having a over heating problem or your locking to do some super overclocking. If you do put in a water cooler in and later down the line you do get a leak is you can burn up your MB and chip due to the part in a computer do not like water.
