My water cooling will be coming on soon!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just ordered my new water cooling from the egg. I decided to go with the Swiftech H20 120 Premium set up. A link can be found below.

Im really excited but I do have afew questions. As I just spent all my money on it, I wont be able to purchase the non-conductive liquid to put inside it for another week. Which non-coductive liquid would yall suggest? (links would be awesome to) Also, what is the safest way to leak test, and for how long? As im in no rush to put it on (currently using decent air) I dont mind leak testing it for a while. Lastly, would leak testing it with water make any difference?

I always leak test for at least 24 hours. For the leak test get you self a bottle of distilled water, do not use tap water and you will get some build up in you system, even if it's only for a day or so. As for non conductive water, just remember it's only non conductive until minerals are combined with it, i.e. dust.

Pjlietz is right on about the leak testing. As far as liquid goes I'd look into Danger Den MCT-5. I've used it and I really like it.

:edit for an idiot posting a newegg review on your kit:

Cons: Coolant doesn't come prepared. You have to mix the hydrx with distilled water. Which I did not have at the time so I used regular water. I have a pentnium 4 prescott processor socket 478. It's not LG... More »
A775 it's the first prescott made available. This thing has a super high threshold for heat since it can reach temps of 70 to 75 easy. I seem to get about 65C to 70C after long periods of use and playing some games.
hmmm...I wonder why?
