AIO Antec 920 in Ice and cold water?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I wanted to try and bench at high frequencies and was wondering if it would help if I put the the Radiator of the Antec 920 in an ice box. Would the radiator get damaged after this? Do i have to worry about condensation ? Would appreciate any help.

The only concern I would have is condensation. If you do try it, I would wrap the tubes in some kind of insulation, even if it is just some dish towels, to prevent any drops falling on the motherboard

What about the copper plate that touches the CPU? Could water drop onto the socket? Is it way too risky?

Thats way too risky, the water Is likely to kill your motherboard first and the cpu and ram will be still alive after it sank or contacted with water
I would go for puting the radiator into ice cold water
If you could do some benches i would do 30-60 min of stress test after that and upload some gloryious overclock records thumb.gif

Risky? I.72v stress testing on an FX 4300 is way more dangerous! biggrin.gif

Water on motherboard is more risky than pushing your cpu voltage and temps just before the max designed thermal limit (80C)
Water on motherboard = a slow death for your mobo or an instant death if your unlucky
VRM and NB always running at 70C or more is also a slow death for your mobo
My GIgabyte died when i driped a bit of water on it when i was making my custom loop it had a slow death of degrading in 10 days after 10 days it will not oc and it will crash on stock settings within 1-3 hours

If your benchmarking you wouldn't get 100% marks unless you get it 24/7 stable on stress if you can push from 4.8GHZ to 5GHZ wihout being stable on stress but stable enough to bench everything theres a chance that your benches will be the same as benching on 4.8GHZ
