I remember reading an article about one of the big corporations, Google or someone, showing that temperatures had no relationship to HDD's failing.

But non the less, this is OCN, so cooling the HDD thumb.gif

Saying that I did see once on the Koolance site a watercooled PSU, It would of been specool.gif

last time I checked PPCs stop sold a watercooled PSU. That was a while ago though

I can't remember where I read it now either, but a study was done showing HDD's were MORE likely to fail when ran cold like that. 35C - 45C was the ideal operating temps for the lowest failure rate.

Here it is....

They are more likely but if you read the abstract and observe the charts it really doesn't make that much of a difference in a home PC environment - and you're more likely to just upgrade after a failure anyway. Just have backups and then who cares. smile.gif

The spread on 24C-55C is something like +/- 3% AFR (avg failure rate) - and most of my hard drives without cooling run ~35C - but you're not going to get them below ambient with water with is likely around 24C-25C at the lowest... so probably at most you'd be increasing the likelihood of failure by no more than 2% max. Perhaps your drive fails in week 165 rather than week 168... really not that much of a difference. smile.gif

Also as they found in that study and a couple of other large ones... drive failures are not consistently linked to a single environmental effect (i.e. it is just as likely for a brand new drive to fail in a given reasonable timeframe as it is for one that's been running for 2 years already) - so basically you are trusting your data to the universe's sense of humor even more than the temperature they're running at.

As an aside - taking apart PSUs (for painting, cable-sleeving, etc...), running multiple reservoirs, creating custom cables or splitters, case modding in general, overclocking, etc... all have a significantly greater potential to destroy or at least significantly shorten the lives of the components affected... but that doesn't mean it doesn't look cool. thumb.gif

so here's the koolance titan block.
I have a question though.
The black Acetal part of the titan waterblock - would
it be possible to paint (airbrush) that or would putting
paint on the top of the acetal part of the block ruin performance
in any way?..

Plastic is an insulator. Painting it would do nothing. Just don't mess up the side that seals.

still not done but that is as it sits

I prefer to use this because if there is something I'm not sure about I can just check it against this. It also gives a number of options:)

I like the plexi blocks, however they haven't released a specific 660 block yet and I don't want to use the 670 block even though it fits worriedsmiley.gif
