First, I know you from Broadwell thread, as we are both owners of that CPU and I was also posting there before. Nice to see you here again
But this company is from USA, right? I'm in EU and would like to avoid ordering parts from USA for few reasons.
Anyway, looking at their site, I can also see they use/sell water chillers. I got some interest for that option also (and I can get same units in EU, so far as I check). Not going extreme cold to avoid condensation, but from my research so far, it is superior to classic watercooling, right? And for GPU, every C degree lower is worth.
I just read some thread from Techpowerup forum, seems one guy is using Hailea HC-500A for both CPU and GPU with great results.
But on overclock.net someone said that these units are not for continous work. Because as I said I never did watercooling before (but I intend now to make a very good custom sistem), I need every input abut that. Does it mean you can't run it 24/7 (which I never do anyway), or it can't run during the GPU load? Is such units capable to cool down water despite GPU heating it while on for example gaming?
As I understand, you do not need radiator and fans if you use chiller. But you still need water pump. Of course I would get quality and strong enough pump.
Now, is I'm doing overkill for 1080 TI? Yes. But if I can pay that, why not. I plan to keep card for some more time as it is enough now for my needs. Would like to have superior cooling sistem for Nvidia 3000, I would later switch on that (especialy if they bring superior Nvenc encoder like they did with 2000 series). No rush, never buying tech when it is just released. After it matures, initial problems (2080TI had it, right?) resolved, others people expiriences of cards are there so I can decide which top model to pick, and maybe some refresh comes out.. that it is right time for me to upgrade. Until that, lets boost this 1080 TI to max power.
If it is better to open new thread about this in Watercooling, let me know.
But I would really like to hear everybody opinions.
