Default liquid cooling?

has anyone attempted to use a liquid cooling system, like in computers for heat sinks?

There have been dozens of threads on this. As far as I know, I started the first one, reporting on a water cooling system for my Aleph 2s.

david,

that was a gentle hint from grey to use the search feature on the site to find the previous threads on the topic.

There seems to be a relation between temperature of the amp and the sound. The AlephX I build does sound better after say half an hour to an hour, when warmed up.
I see the advantage of water cooling in the fact that you can save on heatsinks but you can't eliminate them.
Like Grey suggested, do use the search engine, you will find tons of useful info.
