Cooling Installation questions

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
hello. Ok, I have purchased the following items from Cyber Druid:

Thermochill PA120.3 (used in Cyber Druid's "Monolith")
MCP Vario 655
Fuzion CPU block
3-bay waterfall resevoir

i will be paying for these on Monday, so will get them next week sometime. What i want to know is:

1st: will the pa120.3 fit inside my cosmos case? Please see attached image from a CyberDruid post.

2nd: Is there anyway to use the TEC's on my Freezone to drop temps below ambient?

Thank you for your input.

You'll be able to fit the rad in your case one way or another, prepare to do some modding if needed tough. You could always just lay it on the top of your case so it's in the cooler ambient air.

Now the freezone. No. The TECs used in the freezone are very very weak. Far too weak to take a cpu below ambient. Even if you replaced the TECs with more powerful ones, the tiny radiator in the freezone wouldn't be able to keep up with the heat.

Thats a nice fat rad with shrouds and fans on it......You don't want to use underpowered TEC's, they will make you run hotter then WC'ing and could very easily burn up your chip...I don't even know how well a 437W would cool a quad...

A 437 watt? The Freezone cooled it to 38 degrees at 1.48125 vcore at 3.6. not too bad. i will be selling the freezone on here than. Thanks.

This is my first attempt at water cooling, so i am new at all of this. I assumed the Freezone Tec's were horrible.

A 437W TEC...Yeah if this is your first WC'ing i wouldn't play with TEC's yet, get your WC'ing down pat first, there are just to many things that can go wrong doing both at once for the first time....

I'd guess that a 437W would at least keep you in the teens under load, maybe a little better, maybe a little worse...I've not talked to anyone who's used one on a quad.....

thank you for the help. Looks like the FS thread will be getting a Freezone when the W/C stuff gets here.
