Thread: Liquid Cooling

  1. #1

    Default Liquid Cooling

    I know there's a lot of techy-types on the forums, and I was curious if anyone else has tried liquid cooling. I just put together a simple system for my overclocked CPU and I've cut my core load temps from like 80 to 50.

    Recently installed a Corsair H50. Its actually pretty nice, although I have had to turn up the sound of one of my case fans (adjustable speed) to make up for the nice hum of the previous CPU Cooler I've used. I am running a slight overclock on my main PC (about 400mhz..) however I'm actually impressed it idles at 22c

    How difficult are these to install? They always looked kinda intricate and I don't trust my jittery hands with liquid around computer parts :P Then again it can't be as bad as feeling like you're gonna break your motherboard in half when you're trying to get your CPU fan to snap on right :/

    It's not too bad. There's not liquid in the system until you get all the tubing connected. There's also sealed systems like the Corsair timmahtherebel is talking about that are self-contained and you don't need to deal with the liquid at all.

    Sorry for snatching the topic, but I am soon gonna build a (i7 930, Radeon 5750, Intel SSD, DDR3 1333 CL9 (can't afford any faster ram xD)) system, and the thought of using lc didn't cross my mind. So how much is it gonna cost to cool the CPU & GPU, how hard is it gonna be to set up and how much noise (please tell me there isn't any xD)?
    Thanks in advance!

    I've been running the Corsair H50 for a while now and it's great. It only cools the CPU, but it was pretty easy to fit, keeps the chip pretty cool, and there's much less chance of it springing a leak since it's a sealed system.

    My system ran me about 250 Canadian, for just the CPU. For a graphics card, I'd say another 40 or so, depending on whether you need a bigger radiator or not. It's not actually particularly difficult to install, and if you keep dyes and stuff out of your coolant, maintenance is minimal. Noise is not bad, but will depend on your radiator, fans, and pump choice. My pump is pretty quiet, and the two 120 mm fans I'm using are even quieter. In fact, the power supply fan is the loudest thing in my system.

    I thought about it.

    not worth the trouble for me right now. I'd rather spend 30$ on a newer CPU heatsink then that.

    It's not as portable/moving is not easy with it.
    What I'm planing on getting soon(soon >.> Just got to go order the start of it.)

    More seriously, if you want to buy one, try something this (~$400): http://www.ocztechnology.com/product...cts/ocz_cryo_z
