Didnt necessarily mean water chiller, either works i suppose, but i meant phase.

The problem with water loops is 1) the water, and plumbing (which i really dont like doing) and 2) the noise.
To keep a heavily overclocked CPU anywhere near ambient temps you'd need lots of Rad, lots of tubing... loud fans... etc... Whereas a very quiet, self-controlled phase unit (with its one big "pipe" going to the CPU - correct me on my terms, ive never done phase change work) could keep the CPU at ambient much more easily, with a much easier install (Cut big hole. Insert "pipe". ____ . Profit!)

My question really is, can it be done? Can a phase cooler be made quiet enough and intelligent enough so to replace my Air cooler and get better overclocks, without adding to the noise?
