How many degree increase

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
A year has passed owning watercooling setup. Yesterday was the day to change out old dw/X1 with new. It took me 2 hours to dismount my pump/res & drain n flush three times and then fill with dw/x1 and remount pump/res.

I am really considering going air cooling.

What temp increase would I see going to air cooling from water cooling? Is the 2 hour labor a year worth watercooling?

Why do you feel the need to change it every year?

My own system has been running for almost 4 years on the same water.

Going back to air will see higher temps, and may affect your over clock. But you won't see a huge drop in performance.

What keeps me sticking with water is the vastly reduced noise.

Mayhems X1 Coolants
Mayhems X1 Coolants are made from vegetable extract and are the safest and least toxic coolant on the market today. It comes in many colours to suit the needs of everyone. There is no messing around, you just pour the coolant into your systems and that is it. Mayhems X1 includes all the biocides and inhibitors you will need to protect your water cooling system and doesn’t require the user to add anything extra. If you would like to make your own colour Mayhems X1 is fully compatible with all Mayhems Dyes. We do recommend you change your coolant out regularly as over time the coolant will become less effective. Our recommend change out period is every 9 to 12 months.

Next time use a different coolant.

I'm just using water with a silver coil in the res.

Tbh I should change my water now as it's not completely clear now, but I'm going tt build a new system soon, so there is no point now.

Call Mr cynical but it's also in the manufacturers interest for you to change coolant very regularly smile.gif

Adding a bleed valve and fill port should make changing coolant pretty fast.
Might be worth adding next coolant change.
