I plan to buy a new PC-----1.5GHz, HDD---7200rp

I now that >1000Hz systems need extra cooling. So what do you advice.
Should I put in extra ventilators[i'll do tht in any case]
How much of them. Where is the best place to put thm?
How can I regulate the power they use?
[when writting in sciforums I do not use full system power:)]
I have also heard about water cooling.
What is tht?

On my PII 333 I didn't have to think about overloads and extra heat, so I would really appriciate some advice on this.

I keep my Dell laptop in battery powermanagement mode most of the time - cuts
down on fan time by at least 70%.

Re. Water cooling: The blokes over at TPR who are heavy into over-clocking
and water cooling for their Seti thing may be able to help u.

unless you are running dual processors don't bother with water cooling. buy an extra fan and cut out a few blow holes in your case with grills and you'll be fine.
