Watercool HEATKILLER IV PRO -- new king of the hill? [edited with first review info] - Page 12

I don't see any reason you couldn't just coat it with a clear sealant to prevent oxidation.

At any rate, a red oxide colored block would be pretty interesting.

Hey guys
I got my Heatkiller IV CPU block with rest of Heatkiller parts.
The multi-Link its not fully seated but I can tell you, coming from Hydro Coppers and tiny fittings in parallel squeeze between cards this is breeze and I think it looks nicer.
The CPU block looks gorges and the finish which it's not seen well on this picture, I'm not the good at taking pictures, but the finish of the block is excellent.
I hope you guys post your blocks mounted.




I took this loop apart at least 3 times in the past 2 months, there is always something you want to change, hopefully this was the last time, draining 3 liters of liquid is little tricky biggrin.gif

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



Congrats! Man you have a high end system. Totally deserving of Watercool parts. Mine, not so high end. But I love how the Heatkiller parts look in it






Getting great temps with the Heatkiller GPU-X3 on my 290 oc'd to 1180 core at +100mV.

Cpu temps with the HK IV Pro have not been as good but I use way too much paste so I will reseat over the next few days. The temps are perfectly acceptable, downright decent when you consider I am running XT45 rads with fans at 600-700rpms, but I think they should be a bit better.

Primochill Advanced LRT Crystal Clear has already turned foggy... The aesthetics don't bother me but I worry there is some chemical issue that might be putting plasticizer in my loop.

How is your drain port set up? Mine is so easy to take apart with a drain on the bottom rad

Hey!! you have nice setup yourself my friend, don't cut yourself short, is that the copper CPU block? it looks great.
My drain port is in ideal spot I think, it took me a while to assemble all fittings ad hard tubing but all was worth it, I can drain and fill it every day its easy, the only hard time is to empty 5 rads hehe, they hold all the water that sometimes does not want to come out until I use high pressure air to blow it out.
This SMH10 I sold while back, but the pedestal that was with it is the same in my new STH10 with 2x 480 Nemesis Ultra Rads and top chamber 2x the same rads, as for the front I have small 240 rad to return cold water to reservoir rather than hot, so all together its about 3 liters of liquid, but the drainage is as you can see out front with window cut out and cover with original lid.
I should have everything done by end of this week, I'm tired of keep taking apart so this is the last time....I hope.

I love Heatkiller's looks and performance I don't see myself using anything else from now on.
What's is also great which a lot of small and big companies missing is the support, watercool they seem also slow at responding and making new products but you can't rush good thing, but once you dealing with them they will do anything to help you and to me that is foundation of any good business.thumb.gif

Well temps are pretty good. Here's how it looks after 4 hours of Realbench stress test





The temps in and of themselves aren't anything to brag about but with D5 Vario set to 2 and XT45 420 + 280 sporting Phanteks fans spinning at low to medium rpms in silent mode, I'm pretty happy with it.

That is fairly high OC CPU drool.gif, those tremps are pretty good if you ask me thumb.gif
I'm still working or re-tubing my system due to different ports on my new GPU and CPU blocks.
As soon is I'm done, It should be maybe tonight I will do testing and post some hopefully good results.

Those temps look great! That's all I care about: a pretty quiet PC, some overclock, and temps still under air cool levels.

It's really not a high oc. According to Asus, a 4670k that needs 1.26v for 4.6 is slightly below average. I could go higher if I were willing to up the pump and fan speeds but I don't like that tradeoff.

Most folks here get significantly better temps. Though, I think most folks run more performance oriented rather than quiet. I could get these temps at these clocks on air, with just a humble D14 and Ty143 fans that cost less than $100 total. But of course noise is much higher at load. But, noise is lower at idle on air.

I could care less about noise at idle, I like a quiet PC when I game and run everything on max.
