    How loud are current water cooling solutions ?
    ie: the Koolance EXOS ! It has 3 80mm fans on top of unit.
    So my question is... How many dB are we looking at ?
    Any other solutions you would recommend ? How loud are they ?

    If you want true quiet, then look into some of the phase changing gear that is available. Not only will it give you below zero temperatures, but they are normally very quiet. Of course, you'll be paying through the nose for one of these monsters.

    As to the water sloutions, they are usually a bit quieter than normal air cooling rigs, but since I don't have one installed at the moment, I can't really compare just how much more quiet they are. Check into some reviews and see what they have to say. :)

    The Prometeia is by far better than the VapoChill but generally with liquid cooling the less fluid used the more noise created.

    If I had the cash...I'd have to drive for about 5 minutes to PC Info Computers in order to pick up a nice ol' VapoChill case...(easy access)

    Be warned that the Vapochill does have a prob with regard to damagin' CPU's like in this review, http://www.amdzone.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=1232 plus the Prometeia is an even cooler solution (and not top heavy).
