What is this "watercooling list" you speak of? Is it a mailing list?

I know it's not applicable for lounge room based machines but I cant
help but comment here how blown away I've been with the Zalman Reserator
water cooling system I installed.
I have a large server rack in my office and have now installed 2 of them
to totally water cooled (except the power supplies and commercial
versions of them are now available as well) 2 of my pc servers and cant
believe how different the sound is (including double hard drive
At the moment I'm designing a wall of water that will feed 4 separate
pumps and cover 1 entire side of my rack.
There are a number of people on the watercooling list that are pumping
from a central location to multiple machines in separate rooms (1 is
even running a intercooler solution through his basement into a well :) 
Just a suggestion.

		Yeah, I'm worried about that too. The case I was
planning on was the

and it's

issues with a
		HDD cooler like the Zalman ZM-2HC2


		Would that be enough or am I just trying to fit too much
into too
		small an area?

	How would the HDD cooler help? All it does is increase the
	area for HDD heat dissipation, which still has to go
	I'm actually wondering if the HD-3000 cards can robustly
	their own heat without any active cooling. As for your SFF case,
	one way to find out, I guess.
	For acoustics, http://www.silentpcreview.com/ has lots of
	for both full-size and SFF form factors (and fanless systems).
