My remotely attic located radiators......

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, a few people on here were interested in my watercooling setup, so thought I'd start a thread with some pics for you to look at and comment on.

Basically what I have done is placed the ratiators of my watercooling loop in the attic space or roof directly above my PC. It's not pretty but very effective.

All the heat is expelled up there keeping my room cool and quiet. Also when it is subzero outside it also allows for some pretty cool OC'ing suicide runs

Excuse the messy desk





I have two pumps, one in the XSPC dual bay res/pump with a Laing D5 in the case and a Swiftech Apogee block pump that I had lying around up high with the rads.











Like I said it's not pretty, but does its job.

Wow, sick.

If I were on water, I wouldn't be able to put my stuff in the attic though. It could get up to 140F+ up there on hot summer days.

Same. I had to get in mine last summer when it was 120+ outside. My guess would be easily 150F up in my attic when I had to get in there....

Works pretty good especially when its cold outside as that's where it sucks the air from.

Before my current build i had a Q9550 running at 4.25GHz and during the winter I saw it idle @ 9'C so pretty effective. I still have plenty of airflow in the case so condensation doesn't build up either.

During summer still pretty good, but mainly it keeps my room cool. It's only small and get warm pretty quick when gaming.
