I've got to run my fans at 80% to keep the water temps around 100*F and coretemps in the 70-75*C range. Ambients are 75*F.
That's the problem with an all-in-one unit I suppose. Maybe the next one will be a custom WCing setup. BUT, for the naysayers, this Exos unit is going on 4 years strong and I haven't had a single problem with it!
Anyone have experience running a chilled water setup?
I was thinking about just adding a variable speed pump to a small aquarium chiller and setting it to chill to ambient temps. Any idea about the noise on those? Otherwise it might have to be a custom rear-mounted radiator with 3 or 6 low-rpm fans.
That would work nicely I believe, although you should probably check in the water-cooling forums
Comparatively, my 6-fans 1 360 radiator is pushing along quite nicely, cooling down my 980x, GTX480, and motherboard, keeping the 980x's load temps at about 60*C.
