My 1st ever watercooling kit - Page 7

post #61 of 68
Old koolance = Aluminum/Copper Blocks = BAD
New Koolance = Copper Only Blocks and Fittings = GOOD

reason people say do not use them its like a kid if you have a back stabbing friend are you doing to give him allot of attention or talk **** about him. Pretty much what is happening is koolance is trying to make a comeback from their beginning phases and make up for thier downfall. unlike other companys that started out with only copper and stayed copper and no ones had a problem. see where im getting they fed up in marketing the first go around and trying to bring the company back into a good view but they havent shown us really that much besides the new 350/355. I have yet to have issues with them but with my new build im only going with copper and no nickle plating because nickle plating can seem to be "aluminum" look. In theory its all about if you have problem if you do get a rust problem rma all the products and then use everyone's advice and go with a different company but you wont just yet because u have yet to have problems. As every ones dad always says when he sees you trying to take something apart thats still working "if it aint broke dont fix it"

hope this opens your mind a little

I dunno what your ambients are but my 280 idle'd on 35'c and loaded at 75'c while folding (on air)

On water it idle's around 30-35'c and loads at 43'c.

EDIT: My ambient is 19'c.

I would slowly switch out and sell the aluminum from my loop if I were you...just like everyone said. You will save yourself money in the long run. I would stay away from acrylic because of the cracking problems as well.

It takes a long time to learn all the "rules" to WC. Its too bad you ordered your parts before coming here and learning whats "right and wrong".

The first rule of WC is
"friends don't let friends buy koolantz.
With all that nice gear I would hate to see it get splashed.

I had 10m of Tube and now have about a metre left but I did not use sparingly. Best bet for tube is work out where your blocks are going and how to tube them up and where you will be putting the tubing to goto the raiator(s) etc.

And as for pumps are you running one loop or two?

hey if you want a good setup I would go with this:

Pump: DDC3.2 $64 w/ XSPC Restop $43
RAD: HWlabs GTX360 $99.99
CPU: Swiftech Apogee GTZ w/ AM2 mounting kit $74.90
tubing: 15ft Duralene 1/2" ID 3/4" OD $10.35 (ive used this and Tygon they are really close together in quality and well this is MUCH cheaper
fans: 3 x Scythe 120x25mm SlipStream 110cfm $26.85 (even better performance you can get 3 more and set it up in push pull config)
Coolant: any Feser one color is fine imo $16.95 (most of em sale for about this much)

total : $340.40 (w/o shipping) but this is a realy good setup you can get it cheaper by looking for deals and used WC equipment in the for sales section

Hope I helped

Edit: this of course is just CPU cooling
