Go into the water! - Page 3

post #21 of 23
If you use distilled water and silver coil, you can run for a year or 2 without worrying too much. The silver coil does not need to be replaced just pop it inside your reservoir.

Entry water cooling is not very expensive if you aren't too worried about looks, it is when you start buying compression fittings and mobo blocks and gpu blocks that the price go up.

Also you shouldn't expect your idle to drop too much, what water really excels at is the delta temperature, you will notice your load temperature much much lower than your old H50.

I was running 5ghz daily for about 2 weeks. But I'd get random in game lock ups about once every 3 days or so so i backed it back down to 4.9ghz which i now run daily and haven't locked up once (and at much lower voltage too)

Personally I say if your going to do it do it right. I didn't get a kit because I didn't want the weak pumps they come with, I would rather have something that is known to last and looks good. That's also why I replaced my 50 cent a foot clear tubes a few months later with $1.50 a foot black tubing. That's also why I got compressions straight off.

Total all my fittings were around $60 then if you include the 45s (4 45s and 8 compressions) then it was about $90 but I think it looks way better than zip ties worm drive clamps or regular clamps.

Silver coils don't need to be replaced, you just need to change the water occasionally. (which you will be either due to swapping hardware, adding hardware, changing tubing or whatever)

You could do your cpu and gpu on a 240 but I would say do push/pull on a thick rad. Cpu only the 240 may not make much of a difference.
