What's the next step for my rig after h110 ?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello all

As it said above I was wondering what people advice me would be the next step/massive jump for me to take my CPU cooling up a notch ?

I currently run a h110 with 4x vipers in push pull config running as exhaust ( I have tested it as intake , and no change to temps lol )

I'm guessing some sort of custom loop or nitrogen or somthing .. I would like what ever the next upgrade is to sit inside my case , and it must of course give a big boost to the temp cooling

My case is a eylisum xigmatek other specs are In my signature

My max temps with my overclock are around 69c so I'm happy that they are ok .. So I know this is not needed , but boys and toys and all that lol I would like to see very cool temps from this next upgrade if possible

If you have any suggestion , please can you include as much info for a noob ( that's me lol ) to understand.

Also if nitrogen is what you think rather than water , can I ask do you have to keep filling it up and their for keep buying more nitrogen to put in , because if that's the case that sounds like more hassle than I want lol ... I'm interested in any ideas

Thanks all

Sleepyluke

Update...
Ok, forget about nitrogen .. That does look like loads of hassle lol maybe a better custom water loop is the way to go

It sounds like a custom loop would be for you thumb.gif I can;t really advise here as you are very broad with your questions and there is just wayyyyy to much info to take in with watercooling, you would be best to do a bit of research yourself on that.
you can start with this thread here: http://www.overclock.net/t/913181/water-cooling-guide-for-noobs-always-updated


you don't want liquid nitrogen either, that stuff is quite involved to use and is really only good for very short term things such as an overclocking session.

Thx for the input buddy ,

Would you or anybody be able to give me a indication of how much a 360 rad upgrade (as this should fit in the top of my case ) from my h110 would have on my temps , ei would I be looking at 5c cooler or maybe more ?

And is it possible to just buy a ready made 360 watercooler system like the h110 ?

1) yes a 5 degree increase is quite probable but I can;t guarantee it, it depends on a lot of variables

2) no, you'll have to make a custom loop for a 360 rad

i found these two 360 rad kits

V12 watercooling kit 360 http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=WC-042-OE

H320 watercooling kit 360 http://www.specialtech.co.uk/spshop/customer/Swiftech-H320-Compact-Drive-II-PWM-Water-Cooling-Kit-pid-18387.html

are these new to the market ? or were you unaware of them an till now ?

do you or any body know if they are any good ? and if so what sort of increase in performance i would see going from the h110 ?

thx

I I know kits you assembled existed with 360 rads but I though you meant strictly closed loop coolers like the second one. I wasn't aware that any like that second link existed.

Personally I would go for the first link (V12) mainly because it offers more expanadbility, it's more expensive and it won't offer that much improvement in temps over the Swiftech one but it is a custom loop and you can play with different parts and plan how you will lay it out and have some fun with coolant colours if you wish

for comparison

I have a 360 radiator and a 480 radiator in my PC they are bost XSPC RX radiators (which are an option in the first link) I have running on those 2 GPU's a CPU and my motherboard I got temperatures from between 37 degrees celcius at idle and 45 degrees celcius at load on my parts.

I just turned off the fans on my second radiator so I only had the RX360 cooling my CPU, 2 GPU's and my motherboard and while stressing it a lot I got a maximum of 50 degrees on my CPU, you can expect cooler tempos if you are only running a CPU on the RX360 radiator, I am using Corsair SP120 Quiet edition fans on my radiators.
