Ok. What is the liquid cooling? What do it do? Is it life-lasting? Do it cool themselves? How much do i need for oc cpu/graphic card?

I heard they require your maintenance which is something I don't want. Will just fans do?

    You don't need liquid cooling if you are not going to oc gpu and cpu, correct?
  3. Well I like to OC for a Bench mark, but I play games on default settings, and have water cooled my computers for years. I have found that good hardware will last longer under water cooling, than under air cooling conditions, but I also enjoy it. Water cooling makes for a good hobby. I know that others will give there opinions as well, every one has there reasons for water cooling there computers.
