    It's a liquid-cooling system. If it leaks your components are fried.

    Kritic has one. I remember his friend was refilling the coolant, some spilled and f**ked up his audio card. Regardless, yes, coolant systems like that are not only kickass but look nice.

    A guy I know built a great cooling system out of an aquarium pump and tubing. He also welded the case's frame himself. Ugliest rig I've ever seen, but absolutely sick performance.

    A guy i knew did it from a fish tank as well, he drew air in from out side to cool the water, and had it all mounted on a glass table for extra cooling :)

    since no one answered your question.. your fan should NOT be that loud, something wrong with it. If it were an old computer, all it would probably take is cleaning the fan and tightening it up. If it's a fairly new computer, I would call Dell and make them replace their defective crap.

    Yeah, I'd say clean it up. It could very well just be blocked if you have it in a dusty area.

    Sometimes my fan gets loud, but I just tilt the whole thing and it stops.
