Hey all, so I was digging around in my box of old computer bits and found my old TT bigwater.

Still got the coolant and everything, it's not new and it was used so some of the fins on the heatsinks are a bit bent but it should be ok.

I did hear bad things about the waterblock, so if I am to use it I would get a new one.

I'd get some new piping too with proper seals and not those crappy screws that tend to slip off and bathe your components in coolant.

So what it all boils down to is it worth it to keep the pump, heatsinks and coolant and get some new piping and waterblock?

I would consider use for GPU cooling too when my Asus 5870 arrives.

What do you guys think?

I dunno, I heard the pump was pretty good.
I did used to put the larger heatsink in a bucket of ice water and got my CPU temp to 35~C full load @ 3.6GHz

Don't waste your time, it's really not a good idea.

Side note, 35c full load in ice water? That's.... really high for ice water.

Well if it sucks I could always get a new pump/radiator(s)
