Looking into watercooling, do i really need it. - Page 2

Premixed coolant is no better than distilled water in any way, shape or form, it is not less conductive, it is gives no better temperatures, and it will not stop leaks, and it doesn't stop algae any more than a drop of PT nuke or a silver kill-coil will. Plus it costs a lot, and if it has dye in it, it can clog your blocks up.
Distilled water with PT nuke or a kill-coil (or both if you want) is the best coolant option.

Use both. Killcoil and pt

thanks alot for the suggestions guys.

I have Noctua D-14 tower cooler for the 930 currently. Running at 4.0 @ 1.26 vcore. My temps are 35s idle and 50-55 load. I did try overclocking further but i would have to give it 1.4vcore just to get it to 4.4

Anyway, I think i will be using the same case HAF X. (i sold my current computer as a whole to a friend so building new one).

I was thinking of the dual 360 rad set up, one for 2x 580s and the other for cpu (maybe chipset?)

The case is huge so room should not be an issue. I was thinking of one at the top of the case it has a premade spot for it :/. and one behind the case vertically.

Also the general vibe i got is that i wont see any performance improvements?

Some funny information floating around in this thread. 360 x 2 with the rights fans and you will be good to go. It is all about load temps, it always has been and you WILL see an appreciable difference in idle to load deltas with a proper loop. No air cooler as of now, particularly as it pertains to the GPU/VRMs, can touch water in this respect.

distilled water is really all you need for a fluid and its really cheap. Its around $1 a gallon where i live. I mix with Anti-Freeze but i also work on cars and motorcycles so i have a lot of the fluid.

Thanks for the info. Gonna be cleaning out my computer this weekend (bimontly maintanence) before i sell it off.

I see that there is alot of discussion going on about coolants here. Being a scientist i have access to nice deionized water that i will be mixing with ethylene glycol and some methanol. That should take care of algea problem.

I know the fluid will become conductive over time but its alot better than pt nuke which is partially conductive to begin with.
