dammit. im too chicken to put water near my pc which i invested too much money in. how big of a difference in temps did you see with a lapped BT?
I answered you ? in my thread too... lol I got a kick out of it bc I subscribed to my thread so I got an email telling me what you said... and then when I got there all it said was 'opps' lol
anyway here's what I've seen.
I saw about a 6-8 degree drop in temps for my load cpu temps. My lapped bt would keep my opty at 38-40 and water is keeping it about 31-34. my gpu dropped about 15-20. there were times when my gpu load temps would reach 60 and now they don't go above 40... and actually since the arctic silver has had more time to cure I haven't seen my gpu go above 36 and my cpu above 32-33.
here's a screenshot of my temps. the first one I just took now and the second was w/ my BT so it was a few weeks ago. It is a bit cooler since it's morning, but I shouldn't see more than a 2-3 degree raise in temps on the cpu later on today. Not sure about summer... but hopefully I'll be getting AC
