What if you overvolted .. - Page 2

post #11 of 15
You just need to increase the frequency (hz) not the voltage so much..

In theory, with a custom loop, you would expect to see an increase in flow with a relative drop in temps.

However, the H series is not a custom loop, it a closed loop. Hence, you have a finite amount of coolant. Pushing it around faster will not yield noticeable gains and you'll most probably just burn out the pump.

water in a closed loop exerts force in all directions at the same level of force. So the water would push though the rad faster and through the blocks faster as well. This means cooler water would get to the block faster.

Assuming its being cooled at a high rate through the rad ie:faster fans / bigger rad

Just because its going through the rad faster doesnt mean its being cooled faster.

More pressure through the rad means increased turbulence and better heat exchange rates..fans aside. So long as you dont have a loop that is on the brink of its cooling limits.. the additional voltage from the pump will not affect temps..the rad will 'sluff' off the additional 10-20W you would be inducing.
