Liquid cpu cooling vs cpu fan and heatsink

im having fun building a computer on ibuypower for the fun of it because im at work on sathurday and its dad annyway, i was wondering would you go for liquid cpu cooling or fan? if yes do you have to change the liquid in the cpu cooling? is it like a water cooling thing?

AFAIK all the "water cooling" options available at iBuyPower are just closed loop coolers, akin to the Corsair Hydro H50/60/70/80/100/110. They are zero hassle and zero maintenance, and *can* improve upon the best air coolers when used with the right fans (mainly just the dual 120mm rad ones).

Takes up less real estate when compared to an aftermarket heatsink (Hyper 212 Evo, for example ... or even better to compare, the Noctua DH-4 or whatever it is) as well. Plus, it's +10 for saying "Oh, it's liquid cooled."

Get the new Swiftech kit - You can expand it and add in other items for cooling.

Here is the link:

This lets you add GPU cooling and other waterblocks to the system.
