>> Ive got SSDs in my liquid-cooled desktop<<
Liquid cooled desktops are like cocaine — life’s way of telling you that you have too much money and too much free time.

Liquid cooling can be had for most run-of-the-mill desktops for $250.
When you have multiple gfx card blocks, RAM coolers, northbridge blocks, southbridge blocks, HDD blocks, passive in-line radiators, thermal abductors, and in-line temperature sensors, THEN you have too much money and/or time.

There is no such thing as too much money. BTW, I built a liquid cooled 8 core desktop with 32GB of memory for under $700.
Put wings on this sucker and it’ll surely fly.

Liquid cooling systems can be had for under $50 now. I've seen them for $29.95 on sale.
The one I have only costs $49.95 Thermaltake and have my 3.4 CPU clocked at 4.4ghz.
Tough puters are not for the rich anymore. And two SSD's only set me back $230
which gives me more memory than I'll need for a long time.
Building your own is the cheapest route for high end computing.
