Do you still need a fan with a "heat exchange" ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Just wondering, makes sense really as the more air the better to cool...

But just been wondering when they say heat exchange, do you really need a fan on one ?

That's just a pump/Res combo.. It doesn't remove any heat!
You still need the rest of the loop, the Rad and the fans.

Also, pumps add heat to a loop, 30-50% of the pumps power usage (watts) is turned into heat and that heat heats the water flowing through the pump.

It is poor wording in that title. They mean to say that it is a water pump for a heat exchanger....and a "heat exchanger" in the case of PC liquid cooling is the radiator.

So, yes, you need fans.

heat exchangers are just anything that takes heat away from the thing producing the heat. no you dont need a fan an every type of heat exchanger ie passive cooling. but its hard to tell exactly what they mean as the wording is weird
