Yeah- I guess you almost do need H2O then- here's a thread at EVGA that discusses quad cooling.

...why it won't perform that good? Is it because the water circulation is less compare to other one or the diameter of pipes?

What make a custom WC better?

If the cooler is outside...maybe there is better cooling! ...more fresh air compare to tha air inside...
A lot of stuff makes it better. Bigger tubing, stronger pumps, way better\bigger radiators, better coolant etc...

Having the set-up external dosen't mean that it's better lol! Internal set-ups gets cold air from outside the comp... lol Take a look at my radiator... It's on the bottom of my stacker. So, it pulls cold air from the outside of the case. My case is on wheels so there is way enough air flow for the fans to pull cold air.

Heres a few pics:

















Trust me. Customs internal watercooling set-ups are way better!

Nice setup!

OK, it take fresh air from outside but the exchange produce hot air that circulate inside the case before the fan inside pull the heat out!

...I am learning!

I would have though that you'd have the fans blowing out of the case- doesn't the warm air from your rad heat up your case interior alot? Do you also get alot of dust clogging up the rad?

These lovely ones : SCYTHE S-FLEX™ 120mm 1600 rpm Quiet Fan - Sleeved Products Model: SFF21F [SFF21F] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come

Personally, i would recommend them over the Yate loons that everyone seem to love and recommend on XS forum. For Performance i mean. There 16$ and the Yates are 6$ so as for money ratio... the Yates are better

It's just logic my friend! Actually Cold air circulate through the rad as it's being pulled through it... right... but i doubt it would make the air get hot after it's been through the rad. The rad always gets cooled by the air which cool the water... so it never stays hot. Which means that the air that has been through the rad isn't that much hotter than when it entered the Rad at the other side (Outside of the case).

Is just that inside the case there is a lot of components that produce heat which make the ambient air in the case get pretty hot. Thats why a case require fans pulling cold air from outside the case and then exhausting it with fans pushing air out the case.

Oh and for the words on my set-up!

Now it's time for a

It seem cool to you after the exchange because it is spread on a large surface (the surface of all 3 fans).

...still it is all the exchange heat that circulate back inside!

Like i explained in my previous post, radiators needs cold air from outside of the case! And the air doesn't get that hot after it been through the Rad.

And heat rise in a case you know... So, i have 1x 80mm, 1x 120mm and my PSU all exhausting the warm air out of the case at around the high end of the case.

Dust is a serious problem. Which is why i have worked around to put some mosquito net between my radgrill and my case. And once a week, i clean it using a "Roadsweeping machine" (Not sure if thats the right word for it. I searched for it...and found that...lol)

Heres a dusty pic:



Yeah i know it's I have 2 cats...And am a lazy bastard when it comes to cleaning...

'

Even with that heat exchanged air that circulate in my case, i get some pretty awesome temps on my NB and motherboard sensor

But yeah, i added a small fan on the NB!
