Water Cooling is NOT Worth it. - Page 4  

post #31 of 52
it's subjective...I went water simply because it has 4x the heat loading potential of air.

It was expensive...a high end loop is never a cheapy deal, and at first, as the price started piling up I was a little disheartened (especially after I sprung a leak due to user error) I cleaned it up, got is sorted and I smile everytime my 580's load around 60c.

Typicall thread. Throw the bomb and runaway. OP never showed up again. Pointless to argue alone.
Like said before, he must have had a bad experience while watercooling, therefore the hating.

You should post a thread about it. I remember that one guy who buried 1000M of piping under his back garden for watercooling.

I have two pumps in a single loop. One in the case and one with the rads in the roof. Maybe I should post a new thread didn't think anyone would care. cool.gif

My first two builds were watercooled. Heck, my first rig had CPU, GPU, NB, and SB all waterblocked up. I would agree that in a performance point of view it was not worth it in any case. The extra 300-400MHz over a good air cooler was almost unnoticeable except in benchmarks. And you are correct in saying that it does not reduce noise, since the majority of rads today utilize 2-4 fans, often outside the case or close to it, where they can be heard far easier than a single fan embedded in a heatsink deep inside the case.

On the other hand, it is like saying that having a high end Borla exhaust is not worth it on your car, since it only can give the slightest increase in performance, costs thousands of dollars, and make you the target of every cop and jealous creep with a sharp key in their pocket.

Sometimes it's not about what gives the best performance or makes the most sense dollar-for-dollar. Sometimes it is about that feeling of having something that you can look at and it makes you smile. It's about having something that a very small percentage of the masses ever will.

Hell, I have spent hours and hours of tweaking and stressing trying to pull another 50MHz out of a chip and for what? So I can boot my computer 1 or 2 second faster? It just doesn't make sense since the time spent is thousands of times more than the time gained back from it. We do things like spend $65 on a waterblock to cool a graphics card, just to make it perform as well as a card that cost only $70 more.

Why? Because we are overclockers, that's why. And stock speeds, no matter how fast, are never good enough.

Speaking of Borla exhaust, I was thinkin about putting one on my G37 with my tax money, but I am going with my water cooling project. I'm putting in a grip of $$$ to get the CPU cooled, another vid card, and cooling for both vid cards. Why, because it's fun.....fun to do bad things. LOL!

I think you should post a thread. Overkill is what OCN is about.

That, and liking everything.

What an ignorant thread. Youre stating that noone should watercool because no matter who you are it would not be worth it, which simply is not true. Just becuase YOU dont feel the need for cooler or higher overclocked parts doesnt make water cooling obsolete to everyone else aswell. Some people like to run their computer very cool, and some people only build PCs to benchmark, and therefor need all the cooling they can get. What in the world made you want to make this thread and bash everyone whos watercooling ?

Yea i do not know why u all are crapping on watercooling, you can get a 360 radiator for like 60 bucks and it will give u better temps than the h50 and h70. Overclocking is fun (thats why we are all here) stop crapping on people and just accept the fact that maybe wc was not for you. I am tired of seeing people crap on other peoples rigs

...on topic, water cooling is mainly for high 24/7 overclocks and looks.




the master chief, likes this post.

maybe he sprung a leak and fried components....or used dye that gunked up and clogged all of the blocks.

1. My max overclock on Air was 3.8Ghz, My max on Water is 4.2Ghz. So to put it in simple terms, I get an extra 400Mhz on my over clock while running cooler at the same time. Doesn't seem such a waste of time to me rolleyes.gif

2. Water Cooling looks awesome, Every who see's my PC comments on how awesome it looks.

3. I water Cooler for performance reasons, Everything else is just a bonus...

4. My PC is silent while out performing any air cooler.

Now, some tasks for you :

1. Show me a GPU air cooler that can take 60c off my load temps when running Furmark

2. Show me an air cooler that removes heat so effectively from inside the case that it makes other components run cooler

3. Find me an air cooler that can out perform an 'Average' custom built loop..
