Drinking Water Bottle Cooler Turned Into CPU Chiller - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
I forgot I started this thread so here is an update...

I ran my i7 with this for several months and it worked flawlessly. I always left the chiller on and allowed the thermostat to keep the water just above freezing. I could game for hours and the water would temp would only raise a few degrees. I never tried to OC because a lack of time.

I highly recommend trying this out if you can buy one of these. There are tons of them on Craigslist.

a lack of time but you were gaming for hours? I see what's going on with the priorities! Tisk Tisk! You could always be chilling some beer with your system while you OC.
