Chill Water cooling loop ?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I've been thinking about doing it, I saw this http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_373&products_id=32958

I contacted performance pcs and they told me it will not cause condensation because it's a sealed system. What does that mean exactly?

Also is it really safe from condensation ? I please to use along with 3fan radiator and 2 fan radiator.

It means whoever you spoke to has no clue what they are talking about. If your waterblocks get below the dewpoint, condensation will form. That's not particularly likely with that unit though, since it says it only has a cooling capacity of 295 watts. That's probably about the same as a good 360 rad with medium speed fans, so if you're looking to get really good cooling performance you probably want to look at much bigger units.

EDIT: One thing to be aware of, if you buy a bigger unit, is that it looks like you can thermostatically control them, so just because you had the capacity to get below the dewpoint, doesn't mean you'd have to - you'd just set your water temperature to be high enough that condensation didn't become a problem.
