So if I'll buy two aluminium gpu blocks and one CPU this unit should handle all well and keep things below 0c
It says 700w could you clarify this little bit ? It is like general guidelines for how powerful your system ? I have 750w PSU.
Oh and one little extra question: what is more efficient cooper or aluminium block for GPU. I thought cooper better in thermal conductivity versus aluminium.
1) PSUs are rated by electrical output
2) W/Cing systems are rated by thermal sinkage. Determined by coolant, rad size, and number/type of fans...as well as efficiency of blocks.
3) You want copper. Aluminum is used by cheapskates, and *will* cause galvanic corrision in your loop unless you're using anti-freeze mixed coolants.
4) Mixed coolants preform worse than straight distilled water in thermal performance.
