Water-X CPU Water Cooler Well if this don't beat all. This thing caught me totally off guard. First off, this is one of those, "Why didn't I think of this before?" ideas and secondly, it's so simple that it's brilliant. This is the perfect cooler for those of you would like water cooling but don't feel like messing with the complexity of a typical water cooler install and maintenance. You stick it on just like a regular heatsink and fan but you get all the benefits of water cooling. What could be better? The unit is completely self contained. It's quiet too, the fan is a low noise 26.5cfm 60x20mm ball bearing unit of the highest quality. It comes with its own specially formulated coolant pre-installed and sealed, ready to go. It fits P4-478 and any AMD socket with the four mounting holes around the ZIF socket. The radiator is copper and the mounting water-block/heatsink is aluminum. You will see some amazing results with this cooler, it's one of a kind. It fits on most motherboards that have the mounting holes.

I am a little skeptical... I would have to see some serious proof to believe that this behemoth is worth buying. Cool find though!

Do YOU have anything to say about it???
What you 'wrote' is just a cut and paste from the link you provided.

And this cooler has been discussed before.
Its an interesting idea, but its limited by aspects of size and design.

The copper block at the bottom isnt copper, reducing effectivness. the fan is small and the radiator element is a bit small really.
It may perform better than some aircoolers, but i imagine a REAL water cooler would blow it away.

Plus its quite expensive, for that you could pick up a mcx-462+ or mcx-4000.

when U get it, post how it goes, it is a intriguing idea...

Hmmm, wonder if I can get a valid page fault ???
these invalid ones are far too commonplace...
