Tec/water cooling question.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ok i know people have made some elaborate tec/water blocks that are all combined, but couldnt i just make a cold plate the size of a tec and just sandwich it inbetween cold plate and my heatkiller block. And just use longer mounting screws on my factory HK mounting plate? so the pressure would just hold everything still? Its not like the plate and TEC wander around on they're own. Well gimme some imput and lemme know if im retarded or not lol.
Was considering for my 955 because i know they react well to temps. But would a 50mmx50mm tec be sufficient for my processor. The heatkiller is 59x59mm.


+ I even found a 59x59mm tec but it would stick out on the corners which wouldnt be perfect for cooling but just want to see some opinions.

For best performance TECs require much more pressure than your block can support. The pressure range for TECs is about 150-300PSI. Your block would bend under that kind of press, so that's why Cold plates and hot plates are pretty much required.

Ah i see. Thats a S*** ton of pressure lol. Well that shoots that idea out of the water. Thanks for the info!

Just another point..

Some Waterblocks including the heatkiller have an intended "bow" in the contact surface this could cause potential problems of uneven pressure on the TEC when tightening to correct pressure.

What you need is some of these



However your FAR better off getting a propper TEC water block than using plates and a normal water block

Its all a matter of $$ at this point lol. Does anyone here rock the swiftech tec block? and what about the swiftech GPU/tec blocks.

To be perfectly honest I think you would be better with ultrasonics blocks for a 62mm TEC to go on your CPU.
The swiftech MCW7000-T for 62mm TECs has been shelved mainly because it was intended for i7 and it is a job to get a big enough/efficient enough TEC.
The swiftech MCW6500-T takes a 50mm TEC but while you can get 50's powerful enough for a 955 (only just..) you would do better with a 62mm unit.
The swiftech MCW60-T only takes a 40mm TEC which is generally a bit lame and if you look at the graphic card compatability on their site you will see that graphic cards have moved on somewhat and if you have an up-to-date card it probably wont cut the mustard....
Mainly because of the disparity between GPU sizes and sizes of TECs powerful enough to cool them trying a DIY solution for GPU is a right PITA and I am not altogether sure it's worth the massive effort required.
