Need some advice

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Recently i bought the amd 9850BE, and with my new cpu it brings my computer temps up from 40 c (before) to about 50 c (after) idle. And it pumps a whole lot of hot air in to my room. My room is never below 84 f, whenever the computer is on. (I also live in Louisiana, that could be part of the heat problem in my room )
I've been researching water cooling, and i think this is what i want to do on my system to reduce the temps. But there are SO many water cooling systems available that i don't even know where to begin!
Do you have any recommendations on any systems? Thanks for any help in advance!

The one most important piece of advice when searching for watercooling gear is to avoid kits from the likes of Koolance, ThermalTake, and Zalman; you're better off piecing your setup together from quality components from companies such as DangerDen, Swiftech, EK-Waterblocks, D-Tek, Thermochill, Hardware Labs, and LIANG.

My favorite shope for H2O gear is Petra's Tech Shop

Yeah, petras is the bees knees. You can buy a "kit" which is essentially the best parts thrown together for you

You'll have the same amount of heat in your room WC'ing or with a HSF...With WC'ing it just comes of the rad instead of a HSF, WC'ing wont lower your room ambient any....

Exactly, and if anything it may even increase your rooms temp because it's more effective at transferring heat which means it could very well dump more heat into your room. Sure will keep your CPU nice and cool though .

the amount of heat emitted by the CPU is dependent on it's clock speed and operating voltage; having more efficient cooling in it does not produce more heat than with an air cooler; it merely results in cooler CPU temps since the heat is more efficiently transferred away from it. More heat would only be produced if the clocks and/or voltage are increased.

I kinda figured that would happen. I'm not too concerned about my room temp, just my cpu/computer. One other reason why i'm looking into water cooling is the noise level. Having 3 fans on my computer is like siting in front of a huge industrial fan on high, mucho loud.
