Water Cooling, yo

Postby Wolfy » Thu Sep 13, 2012 12:44 pm

What's peoples' opinions on 'em?

See, I thought they were a massive faff but these here look as simple as slapping a CPU fan on: http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Componen ... s+-+Water/

Jim/Bilko's got one and it's really quiet. Just wondering how viable/reliable they are. Anyone on here got a kit or done their own?

The all in ones tend to be good so long as you're buying Corsair or Kuhler.

I have a Corsair H80 and it batters the stock fan, is comparable with most other air coolers but is oh so quiet.

The 1 reported explosion of fluid on a Corsair one was met with a written apology and a replaced PC (apparantly)

I have Corsair H60 & highly recommend any of the Corsair closed CPU watercooling units. I did have one problem where I wasn't screwing the screws properly on bracket & causing the screw holes to not properly
hold the screws. Customer support were great, contacted them for a replacement though I think I had to pay for shipping & received it quite quickly.

Daft question but what is the difference between the H60, 80, 100, etc? What does that number actually signify?

yep i have a H100 on mine and its just the sweetest bit of kit, easier to install than an easier thing. Doesnt take up shit loads of case room like a conventional fan array does.

Its a winner - if your planning a new build plan one of these into it as a start!

Mostly it's a number to id them.
Generally, the higher, the "better".

higher without a doubt better in this case :)

They are on a par price wise with standard cooling fans which makes them an absolute no brainer.

My i7 throwing anything at it doesn't get higher than 65-70 oC on full load it idle in the low 30s.

There are better air cooled fans but they are very much top end of that market both in price and physical size.

Hey, thinking about getting a H60. One question though ; in the installation video someone made there's a "Pump" and "Fan" connector. Just wondering where those would plug in? I'm assuming the one on the CPU cooler will go to the CPU fan connector, but what about the other one? Does it just go to another Fan connector? eg. Plugs in where the old back fan would have?

Hook the pump up to the CPU header and the fans to any other fan header on your motherboard.
