First watercooling build - Page 3

post #21 of 23
Thread Starter 
I'll take it from them. They do know quite a bit. And this was just a simple setup. I have streamlined this so well I have absolute faith in it. This topic has been a split hair for years but optimization is key and that's what I think I have done here. Review

EDIT: If you notice they only had two fans in the case. Granted there's plenty of variables since not every case is the same but you get the general principles behind what a lot of people debate about. I'll gladly take the slightly yet neglible warmer case temps for having a nice cold cpu

But you can do it your way and increase the temps inside the case and blow hot air directly onto your components.
I have to agree a little with nametagg. You should pull air from an intake and exhaust it through the rads. It won't pick up that much heat from point A to point B inside the case, but will give some fresh air to you NB/SB coolers, give a little bit of fresh air to the vid cards and then exhaust through the top with the rads. Don't go crazy on OC if you take heat in through the rads at the top. You'll be heating up the MB with the chipset, plus heating up the cpu block (which is made of a highly conductive metal).

The reason Cars have air pulling from the outside onto the engine is to keep the heat uniform. During winter or even the colder months, some parts in the car need to be warmed up a bit. Power Steering, Breaks fluids etc, hence the intake from the front and the heat inside the hood. A computer is a little diffrent, and the heat the components inside the case creat is nothing compared to an engine combusting petrol. So you'll still have plenty of "cold" air going through that rad.

Second, heat rises cold air drops. Taking the top and making it an exhaust might be the best thing for heat exhaust. Think of a chiminey for a wood stove or something. The heat always rises, by having the exhaust at the top you're not going againsts physics but with them, I doubt there'll be any noticable diffrence though. Heck that's the way I conceived mine!

Yea I feel ya. It's working out though. My fan controller is junk so I ordered a Rheosmart. Last night I ran prime95 after putting the water cooling in and I could only run two fans for the rad. One 200mm pushing air from the top into the rad and a 120mm pulling the air through into the case. Air temps were 3 degrees above ambient when it reached the case. After an hour of 95 it never got hotter than 67 at 4.4ghz I believe. The screenshot is in my other thread. Can't complain so far. Just gotta get that fan controller in. The fans are jet engines it's ridiculous
