Water chiller.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm Starting a new Computer build with water cooling. I am think of getting a water chiller to add to the cooling. Is there any bad effects to this. The only one i can think of is Condinsation. HAs anyone done this before with good results. Any feedback would be great before i buy.biggrin.gif

you wont have any problems with condensation if you dont have your chiller to chill the water close to 0 (im sure you can find alot of info on condensation on the web to gauge with more accuracy your needs in your particular environment as humidity of the room and general indoor/outdoor temps influence how your cool with a chiller a fair bit.). as long as you stay within the room temp you should be ok. problems only arise when you try to chill to really low temps. i use a chiller to just shave off degrees when im doing rendering to reduce temps from 60 to 30-40 ish.

my computer is also a huge part of my business. so i can justify the cost. but you are effectively running an extra box. at load you are looking at about 300-450w power draw from a 1/2 hp chiller. not to mention the noise. if you are looking for silent build this isnt the way to go. low rpm fans and are the way to go. unless you want to keep it in another room but then you would have to have more pumps to compensate for how far the water has to travel.

thats without going to much detail my findings with my chiller.
hope it helps ya.
