Improve water cooling loop for 3960x - Page 2

post #11 of 36
I also have a 3960x, Your not going to get much better temps then that. What you have is within range of most under water.
Only thing you can really play is the ambient temp in your room, as you stated with AC on you get a better temp biggrin.gif

Is there any way of cooling only the air that goes through the rad? LOL

Maybe a low power dedicated air conditioner for pc? An air conditioned chamber for the case!

You can get low temps if you want and keep it clean looking as well, everything pretty much depends on your budget.

For example here's what I'm seeing when I browse OCN and watch some random YT vids:



You've got lots of options, ranging from TECs to water chillers to trying to beef up your loop to phase change. smile.gif

LGA 2011 @ 1.512V and 0C idle temps is like a dream... LOL

But anything that causes condensation inside the case (it should keep condensation outside the case at least) is not very practical for 24/7, is it?
Any option with these characteristics?

The best that occurs to me are the water chillers units to keep water close to ambient. But the price yes... looks huge.

put ice on top on top of your radiator

If you're interested in water chillers I'd look at dimastech and littledevil stuff, performance PCs also carries some chillers. Or as has been suggested, those mindchill TECs would probably do wonders while not being so expensive.

Before going on a shipping spree, are you sure that your pump is working at full capacity, you don't have any kinks in your tubing, your system isn't extremely dusty, high ambients etc.?

You can also pick up all of these more extreme-ish products at a MUCH lower price if you're willing to shop around and go used.

Yes, pump at full speed, no kinks or dust. Ambient temperature is fine for now. It will get hotter soon.
