Also i asked XSPC about our 750 v4 pump and they said YES it will do 3 blocks and 2 radiators! They did say that was its limit though.

Just ensure that you have the front and top radiators as exhaust, if you have that front radiator as intake, as it is the first radiator in your loop it will draw in the hottest air into your system. I have shown what it would look like in the diagram "Radiator Flow #1" if you had both fans as exhaust, I have also shown the temp increase in the tubing in different colors to try and help.

Another thing you could do is "Radiator Flow #2" as this will use the top radiator to cool the hottest water first and then the front one, of course the air coming out the front one would be much cooler than the top one.



The major difference is that you would be hitting your GPU's first and your CPU's second in the #2 layout. But in reality there is only a couple degree difference in having the water flow this way and your GPUs should be doing most of the grunt when playing games. Of course it is always good to cool the coolest thing first, so CPU and then GPU. But then if you are a heavy encoder your CPU would then become the hottest thing and your GPUs would get a heat spike from that, even though it would only be a couple degree at best.

Also, if you have both radiators as exhaust there is a good chance your system will be negative air pressure.. that is unless you are going to use both side panels full of fans as intake. biggrin.gif

That is alarming. That is not the attitude you need to have about any kind of watercooling. Getting an AIO cooler is nothing but a Toyota MR2 dressed up as a Ferrari. They are nasty and if things go wrong Corsair do not "have your back" in terms of warranty. They may offer replacement parts or another AIO cooler. but all that could have been avoided by the cheaper high end air cooler. And you would have still of had the exact same result in terms of overclocking and temperatures.

And next time when you want to type these words,
please at least check if you trying to call out someone who hasn't spent the last 15 years building custom watercooling rigs and who also hasn't tested almost all past/current AIO coolers.

They perform **** for water, and are near enough on par with all of the best air coolers on the market. Why spend $100 on a H100 then maybe replace the fans (+$30), to get the same results as an $80-90 air cooler? which has 0 risk of leaks & an even greatly low maintainable usage model.

If you're happy to have spent 100 dollars on a water cooler. welcome to the elite club of uneducated masses who see watercooling written on the box and $100 on the price tag and must think gods just handed you a 1 up IRL. Congratulations thumb.gif

Wow, I disagree with just about everything you have said regarding AIO water coolers.

They are in fact specifically for people who don't want the hassle of maintaining an open-loop. There is a five year warranty on Corsair coolers, and they do, in fact, have your back as I have read from those who have had problems over the years.

As for having a huge chunk of metal hanging off my motherboard, no thanks. I never liked those chunks and I never will. In fact, if it wasn't for AIO watercoolers, I wouldn't bother overclocking at all. The fact is that this cooler drops the temp on any processor I've used it on by more than 20c (I have documented this my current build and another using Corsair watercoolers in this very thread). So, the fact is (I like to use facts, not rhetoric) a "slice of wet bread" will not allow you to overclock a 2500k to 4.5 GHZ.

You are right about one thing though, it is easy to overclock a 2500K. That's the entire point of purchasing one, the same as maintenance-free is the entire point of purchasing an AIO water cooler.

You try to take the strengths of AIO water coolers and make them detriments, but the fact are the facts. They work well, they allow little maintenance, they're safe (as safe as an open-loop is), and they don't require several pounds of metal hanging off of your motherboard. Also, I have seen several instances of people getting their damaged components replaced by Corsair if their damage has resulted from a factory defect. That five year warranty is really pretty awesome. And, at $99 CDN, with the ability to just pick it up from my local computer store, the convenience is an added bonus.

I love this "Getting an AIO cooler is nothing but a Toyota MR2 dressed up as a Ferrari"

Wow, more rhetoric. Have I not already made clear that I don't want your "Ferrari"? Do you think everyone with a sports car (to use your analogy) drives a Ferrari?

Why do you keep comparing it to an air cooler? Come on, lets be fair. These coolers are better in temps than air coolers. Sure, not buy much, but the best ones have proven themselves in benchmarks all over the 'net.

So, lets compare to other water coolers. OK, you get another 10C with an open-loop, but I don't need that extra 10C. What will I get, a few hundred more MHz, and for what? I get to worry about leaks since I would not be protected by most of the manufacturers. I have to keep cleaning the damn thing, worrying about algae and corrosion.

On top of this, open-loops are to water cooling as chips are to snacks. You can't have just one. You will end up spending more and more and more. Fine, I might actually do that one of these days, but for now I don't need the added expense.

Oh hey, I almost forgot about portability. I can still throw my case in the back of my car and go to a buddies place for a weekend of LAN gaming without worrying about my open-loop. Not only worrying about the open-loop, but I also don't have to worry about this 10 pound chunk of metal causing a problem (in the case of an air cooler).

AIO water coolers are like the Ford Model T of water cooling. Sure, they're not as good as pure hand-assembled or non assembly-line units, but they do a great job for the masses and let us go that extra mile.

If you're claiming you have spent 15 years building water cooling rigs, that explains why your opinion of AIO water coolers is so warped. It's like an iPhone fanboy looking down his nose at an Android phone.

I may not have been spending my career building open-loop rigs, but I have been building computers for the last 30 years (since the days of modding Vic 20s). I never bothered with open-loop water cooling because it's just too much bother for what it provides, unlike maintenance-free AIO water coolers.

I check my system every day, and thoroughly once a week. I pull my system apart every 3 months and clean the radiators.. regardless.

My system is very modular now, so pulling apart and cleaning requires less time.

You're just proven my point. You're using an open loop, right? I have to give my system a light dusting evey three months because I'm using an AIO cooler.

Welcome to the elitist club of watercooling our AIO designated seating arrangement is in the back, surrounded by a security fence and guarded by a very respectable elder member of our club. There you find all the other AIO members who share in the joys of figuring out why triangle doesn't fit into circle hole and ponder over the exquisite taste of lime cordial soaked peanut butter sandwich squares. Remember to raise you hand when you need a bathroom break and a member of our team will escort you safely and even provide assistance if need be. thumb.gif

Sure sure, be nice about it now. Just when I was perfecting my argument. I had a buddy who used to do that. He would work me up in an argument, and just as I was making excellent points, he would say "I guess we'll have to agree to disagree". AAAAHHHH, that would drive me crazy!

I do see the appeal of open-loops. However, I still think my points are valid.

I totally agree with Mergatroid. AIOs are super practical for what they are, and are a really nice middle ground between air and water. And I totally see the appeal in building your own custom loop, but I don't see how that invalidates AIOs at all.

I do like air coolers as well, but there are some downsides to them, especially the big high end ones. Aside from the added weight, their bulkyness makes your case harder to clean, which is my biggest pet peeve about them and has me wanting an AIO. This also signifies a big aesthetic difference, between the beefiness of a bulky air cooler and the slimness of an AIO. Which obviously is not to say one is better than the other, but it's another factor where preference comes into play.

Anyway, my point is that AIOs do have use cases and a big place in the market.

On a different note, I got all my gear set up and everything looks gorgeous! I dunno why I didn't go with red LEDs from the get go. I'll post some pictures at some point this week.

Well not posted on here for a while. Some nice builds since I last looked as well. My own case has undergone a few small changes as well.

Just waiting on a GPU upgrade which should arrive tomorrow. Upgrading from a msi hd 7870 hawk to a evga gtx 770 sc acx cooler. Can't wait to see the performance difference, and I will be already for Sept 12th and the full release of Arma 3 smile.gif I will post a couple of pics tomorrow smile.gif

Maybe its just me.

Does the PSU get hot enough for it to catch fire?

I haven't even felt my PSU get luke warm yet?

Mates you are arguing on the wrong basis, we don't build a custom watercooled system for it's practicality easy of maintenance and value for money, what the heck the sleeving alone costed me nearly as my PSU. You build it for the challenge, to be different and-just like a dog who licks its balls-because you can. Nowadays that the technology is no longer a box in the corner and has spread to various "smart" devices all over the place, i found the PC to be the nest for the enthusiast biggrin.gif

Google is wrong about that one then, because the ignition point for cardboard is 427 degrees Celsius, or 800.6 degrees Fahrenheit. thumb.gif

So yeah unless you PSU literally catches on fire cardboard in your case is no hazard biggrin.gif

Edit: But if you mean the fire point, the fire point is the temperature at which a substance will burn for at least five seconds after it is set on fire. The fire point of cardboard is 258 degrees Celsius or 496 degrees Fahrenheit.

Hehehe I think I'd have a few things to worry about if my PSU got to 427 degrees or anything else for that matter! The cover only touches the motherboard tray nothing else so I can't see it being an issue?

At 427c I will turn into a mutant just sitting next to it!!!

Well said, I mean most of us here tend to spend far more than we need to on our machines than is really needed, or prudent, but we do it cause we can. I mean my current planned insanity is completely unnecessary as my existing machine is more than enough for my needs at this point in time. All the same I am building this liquid cooled insanity because, I want to, I can, I want to test my skills, and I want something unique. Otherwise, might as well buy an off-the-shelf system from Best Buy and be done with it, since it would be cheaper.
