Water cooling, is it trust worthy

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have been thinking of water cooling my new Asus Sabertooth 990fx R2.0 Mobo but not sure what or how to use water cooling. I have always been a air cooling heatsink lover, currently using the Cooler Master 212 EVO with 2x120mm cooler master fans. I keeps my 8320 CPU at idle 30-35c and at load 40-45c which is of course without any OCing, That is one reason I have been considering water cooling but have been worried about leaking, also with these contained water coolers what is the longevity of them, how long does the liquid last like in the Cooler master H100i how long does it last or can you add more coolant to the radiator. So if anyone has any suggestion on this topic and which direction I could go for the money. I have a Full tower case that can fit 240mm and up to I think a 360mm water cooling unit. My case is a AzzA Hurrican 2000 which has lots of air cooling fans
Thanks to all that reply

Water cooling is more about a hobby than anything. Its very cool to build a custom loop, trick it out the way you like, then show it off. It is not an absolute must, but if you have to have the best temps, then it offers what you need. Units like the H100i etc are sealed no maintenance units. Then we have Swiftech units like the H220, this unit can be filled and drained, cleaned etc. The bad part is if you are in the U.S, they are currently not selling them here as of yesterday.

Whats your reason for wanting to WC? I havnt seen much on the lifespan on an AIO cooler but if I were to pick an AIO cooler I would go with an H220. Better performance than an H100i and you can expand on it to cool GPUs. WCing GPUs is much more beneficial than cooling CPUs in a lot of ways. Temp drops are huge on GPUs and you eliminate noisy GPU fans. As far as leaks you don't have anything to worry about as long as your meticulous and follow standard leak testing.

EDIT: I didnt know they stopped selling H220s in the US, thats a shame.
