Wanting to grab a water cooling kit when I go bulldozer - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Yes, it is slightly better. With 1500rpm fans the RS360 will dissipate ~380W while the RX240 will dissipate ~335.

For reference, the RX360 will dissipate ~500W.

I can't see myself water cooling my GPUs where the RX360 would probably come in handy eh? The RS360 should do very well for just a CPU?

Thanks a lot for the input guys. Really appreciate the information!

For just a CPU it is definitely overkill and the RS240 would be more than sufficient.

What about the collant? I've heard people using anti-bacterial/fungi solutions added in their water. Also, do collants work signficantly better then distilled water? What solution should I use? I've heard that certain collants don't work well with the alloys in some blocks?

Could mean I could tone down the fan speeds eh? Lower the overall dB from the fans?

Distilled works better than anything out there and is by far the cheapest. Its easiest to use either a silver kill coil (.999 silver strip) places in the res because you can put it in once and never have to worry again. Or Pt nuke which is a water additive to kill bacterial which you have to add each time you change the water.

The issue you hear of is when they dye separates from the liquid and stains blocks or even worse gets stuck in your cpu/gpu block and restricts flow raising tepms. Distilled and the 2 anti bacterial solutions I typed above are the easiest, cheapest and most effective solutions out there.

And to lower the sounds of your fans you can grab a fan controller.

Hey, I got another question. What sort of fans should I use? I've heard that switching the fans could give as much as 9 C differences.

Hehe, I meant that if I get a bigger/better rad, I could effectively get the same performance with lowering the fan speeds and thus lower the dB in comparison of getting a smaller rad.

Btw, IE is acting up on the school computers. I can't rep you for some reason...

Best fans for rads are Gentle Typhoons...catch being they spend more time out of stock than in stock.

Another question, would a RS360 even fit in a HAF922?
