D-Tek dB1 powerful enough - Page 2

post #11 of 12
I'm not a fan of small pumps either, a good pump just isn't all the more $$$, everything you choose to use in your loop, rad's, blocks all depends on pump spec's..I think the D-5 vario is the best all around WC'ing pump going right now....But hey you have to do what you have to do sometimes...

I'd just try it myself and see...Run it with a 220 for a while, a couple of weeks and see what kind of temp's you are getting...Then cut the 120 back into and see if it helps any, if not just leave it out...

Something you might want to try and it seems to me makes a difference at times is this, higher flow will give another 50-100mhz without lowering overall CPU temp's...It supposedly keeps microscopic hot spots better cooled on the chip so you can wring out a few more MHZ...

See if it clocks higher with a single rad then dual...Depending on what temp's you get with it...If its hotter without the 120 in the loop by all means use it, lower temp's should give better MHZ by itself...

Thats a old theory by Cathar, sometimes it seems to me that it does and other times not, but its worth a shot I think...I still use jetted blocks, with the newer blocks you might or might not see a difference...

EDIT: Come to think about it you wont have enough flow to even bother trying out the OC part, just try it with the rad's....I was pushing close to 3gpm when I was testing that out...

I already have my dB-1 and a 120 Black Ice Stealth GT or whatever. I'm going to be upgrading to a 220 Swiftech one. Seeing as my video card is overheating recently, and I will have 2 rads, adding up to 360. I think I have enough for video card to add in too. I have the 8800GT from Galaxy and it has the volt mod jumper on it, and it's really easy to remove the heatsink. I think I'm gonna add my gpu to the loop.

So what do you guys suggest for a waterblock for my 8800GT. Since my 8800GT already has ram heatsinks, I think I need a gpu only block, not full coverage.
