Well budget SS that can handle a quad I've done and done and am now selling sorta like hotcakes, same thing UnG posted in the hot deals section. Waterchiller, how does small, decently quiet, decently low power, decent quad able and maybe quad plus gpu performance sound, and best yet, semi adjustable temperature range?

You've hit the nail on the waterchiller. CPU-only WC setup on the Quad, mainly a folder.

Why a chiller vs a direct die system?

First I would like to experiment with a waterchiller - simple addition to the existing loop. But one day I would like to bench using a single stage - nothing glamorous, nothing fancy. Just have some fun and play with it.

You'd have to insulate your waterloop then you know.

Do you have pics of a chiller? I taught that I could cool the liquid before reaching the block.

Not knowing nothing about H2O cooling but kind of grasping the big pic......Would a chiller be the same as dumping your rad in a bucket of icewater? So what would insulating your tubes do? I assume only the 'cold' ones that lead to the CPU/GPU right?

The liquid would be below ambient temps and prone to condensation. Unless the flowrate is very slow in the system there will be a minimal temp difference between the fluid entering and exiting the CPU block so the whole fluid system would need insulating. At least with direct die only the CPU socket needs to be insulated.

Basically yes, but a good chiller can provide more overall system performance if your willing to insulate more.
