Build me a watercooling kit? - Page 3

post #21 of 28
Any watercooling system can only keep temperatures as close as possible to the ambient air temp. The temperature of the fluid that is cooling the water blocks can only ever be slightly above the ambient air temp.
A H100i will give you good temps at high noise.
A H220 can give you the same temps at slightly less noise, or slightly better temps at the same noise.
A full blown custom loop will not really automatically give you better absolute temps. All it can do is give you similar temps at lower and lower noise.

false, an evap cooler like a bong can get to roughly 15 degrees below ambient

Fascinating, So what? Has nothing to do with what has been asked.

well not picking sides, but that is a form of watercooling. you can still use the h100i, then run it threw the bong, and into the cpu. hack/chop/slice/mod that h100i
so that would help cool up to an extra 15 below ambient.
its worth nothing you'll want some hepa filters on that intake of air on the bong. nothing like clogging up a cooler with dust and having it fail. personally i think its way more hassle than its worth for anyone that isn't a mod junkie like myself.

go the simple route that i suggested before thumb.gif

fans are on lowest setting of my h100 (non i version)

if you are getting temps much higher than mine, then you're doing something very wrong unless you have a serious overclock going on. provided you use liquid ultra pro

Also research further about the CLU, I've read alot that that tim might scratch the info off IHS and will ruin your chance for an RMA on your chip
Not sure if this is %100 true but I've read it a few times from different users so something to definitely consider

What?
What?

I dont see anything but a h100i review in that video smile.gif

The video link I gave you which come from linus and a swiftech employee himself actually show multiple PC's with the same components and the different kits, it's an excellent example to use as reference
Trust me, I'm not trying to bash or promote either, I just want us to be able to take a look from both sides of the feel and get a true idea for pros and cons to each

If you go custom - > http://martinsliquidlab.org/ best site I know for in depth unbiased reviews smile.gif he also is on OCN forums as well!

That is from people using scruff pads to take it off. If you use metal polish and then iso and take your time that will not happen.

you wouldn't need to mod the h100i to make a bong.
