New to water cooling
I am looking into water cooling and need a little help if possible. Money is not really an issue as I want very good performance. I've read a little here and there but I was hoping that I could get some personal help from you guys.
So could you give me some nice recommendations and basic info that will get me started?
Here's my setup.
Asus p5k-e deluxe
Already have it overclocked to 3.6ghz but my temps are too high, which is why I am going to water cooling.
Thanks guys. :bleh:
I should mention that I'm looking for an efficient setup. I do not want to cut my case or anything extensive like that.
Get that, add a RadBox http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...cture=Swiftech a MCW30 for the chipset http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...cture=Swiftech and oh, maybe a videocard block : http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...e=Danger%20Den
There you have it, that will give you amazing temps.
thanks man. that looks like a pretty high end kit.
is that overpriced or is that about par for a high quality kit?
It's actually a Very well priced kit. Yes, expect to pay that much for quality. The radiator alone is worth over $140. It is quite possibly the best radiator on the market, and you don't even need loud powerful fans for it.
what kind of temps do you think I would get on my setup @ 3.6ghz? I want to make sure this will a worthwhile upgrade.
so i can mount the radiator on the back of my tower with the radbox?
Well I can't get exact numbers for you, as everyone has different variables like ambient temps and stuff, but I would say full load temps with the CPU, GPU and chipset would be somewhere around here:
CPU - mid 50's Load (guessing 1.4-1.5V)
GPU - 45 Load
Chipset - 35-38 Load
These are roughly the temps I am getting, with a Lesser RAD setup, as well as a lesser CPU block. If anything, your temps should be better.
*Edit - Yes, you hand the rad off the Back of the case with the Radbox, on the rear 120mm fan. like in this pic.
awesome! that sounds good to me. I was reading that the d-tek fusion is the best cpu block? Will I be okay with the apogee gtx for my quad core?
and how do the kits on Petra's Tech Shop compare?
