How to uterly fail at watercooling

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
i bumped my case, making my pump lose water feed, so it lost sucking in water, so i though it would unplug it and restart it, instead of ending my game and what not. turns out bad idea... took to long to get it pluged back in, cpu temps got into the mid 80's and block was way to hot to touch. Never try and re prime a pump while pc is turned on lol, turn your pc off.

LMAO!!! That is what we call, FAIL!!!

On another note, isn't mid 80's an acceptable temp level for Intel's i7 series CPU's?

How do you have your rig set up that a bump disrupted feed to the pump? I can pretty much lay my rig over on it's side when running and not disrupt flow.

well i had a dangerden rad-resiovor giant tube thing, in my antec 1200, but when i got the new lian li mid tower, its way to big to mount anywhere, so i have it proped up on the front fan and if you move it slightly it gets air into the pump, fed ex man has my swiftech micro res on his truck the past 2 days, but coun't find my house yesterday, so hope it comes today, cause i paid for 2 day shipping, and its the 3rd day now.

This isn't that bad. I've heard of people submerging their PCs in water and asking "what next?" lol

This is how to fail at water cooling:



T line after a pump and CPU and before a radiator is utterly useless and fail. This was done by an OCN member too
