wondering if WC is really better? - Page 2

post #11 of 33
I have done it for the experience. It's expensive but rewarding.my temps didnt get much better but I did try an AIO which. Had the same temps as air. Now it's a out 6deg better than on air. Not great but worth it.

I second that. On water my Asus GTX 670 went down from 70+ to 45 degress max (heavy gaming) and the rig is very quiet. Asus direct CU is a great cooling, but it was still quite loud for me.

With water cooling its easier to get that hot air from the rads right outside keeping your room cooler. I have seen several setups where buddy had his rad attached to the screen on his window exhausting out

For me it's almost a must since I fold on this rig for a week every month. Folding on 3 gpu's and the cpu would be tough to do here in the summer but under water it works.

Water cooling has high up front costs, but you can re-use most of the gear over and over again as you upgrade your machine. Fittings pumps and radiators; water blocks not so much (especially GPU blocks). Even if your fitting o-rings go bad, you can just replace them and continue to use the fittings.

Really, as tech matures, only the water blocks change, really. Maybe radiators every now and then, but even older rads aren't horrible, just outperformed.

Air is just soo much more noisy, too, you get used to the quiet hum of your water rig. smile.gif

The liquid cooling ( custom ) is always better than those cheap kits with aluminum and copper! I come from a H50 and H70 and before these, I prefer to use the best air coolers.biggrin.gif

While air cooling is easier as well as the AIO water cooling kits, I'll always recommend a custom loop- but only if you know how to do it right. I always try to balance a loop for noise and performance by choosing the right components, but that won't be cheap. Water cool for silence.

The best air cooler right now would probably be the Noctua NHD-14, it's a beast- and it gets very close to the temperatures you'd get out of a Corsair H100i. Just from my experience with the AIO coolers, I'd go air cooling or a custom loop, because with at least with the custom loop you can refill when it gets low, but you can't refill the AIO kits and they will inevitably leak vapor.
