You would have been cheaper getting newer kit. Water cooling is very espensive.

Most dualie Mb's are used in servers where there is a lot of data transfers. That said, this would be a much faster computer.

I dont think those cpu's would even need any water cooling at all. But if you really want water cooling you might read up here.

Not really its a pretty under powered and archaic system the P4 cpus have been out a very long time, and overclocking they arent goin to be great not worth $50 really, it will make a half decent home server for file storage maybe but dont expect to use it for much else it wont be a gaming or video editing rig anytime soon. A water cooling kit wold be a real waste of money as one to fit that system would be as old as it is and water cooling back then was risky, noisy and even more expensive than it is now.
