Water cooling

Postby Aero » Wed Jun 26, 2002 5:27 pm

I am trying to learn how to water cool. Where can I find newbie-friendly guides on water cooling? If I do water cooling, will it lower my CPU and system temp by a lot? How much would a decent water cooling system cost? Is it loud? Is it heavy?

Water cooling is it colder yes.

Is it loud... no, unless you hook it up your fridge.

Water is Heavier that air

Costly? Depends on the quality you want. You could build a trailer trash cooler pretty cheap, or you buy the parts from a ferrari dealer and assemble it. it all up to you

Koolance makes pretty good/simple water cooling systems, might want to check out some reviews.

I'm not water-cooling my system. I just feel like posting this......(dunno if anyone has used it) :twisted:

ImageDescription:
WaterWetter® Supercoolant is a unique wetting agent for cooling systems which reduces coolant temperatures by as much as 30°F. This liquid product can be used to provide rust and corrosion protection in plain water for racing engines, which provides much better heat transfer properties than glycol-based antifreeze. Or it can be added to new or used antifreeze to improve the heat transfer of ethylene and propylene glycol systems. Designed for modern aluminum, cast iron, copper, brass, and bronze systems.

I've used it in my friend's Youkon. And it lowered the temp by what seemed to be 10oC. Yea that stuff reallt works. At my local track MANY people use it to cool thier "overclocked (:p) " engines. And depending on how much of a ratio u use water/"Watter Wetter"/coolant-anti-freeze will make the biggest difference in cooling. A Watter Wetter/water solution would give u the BEST cooling but the sacrifice is that with no coolant in the solution there is the possibility of rust beging to form.

If u have/were to create, a WCS that was composed of copper tubing (for the radiator) and an aluminum cooling block (CPU cooler) then u have just created a catilist. With the aluminum/copper combo rust will begin to form throughout any metal components that the solution contacts. So the answer to this delema is to either have a pure copper or aluminum setup or to have a standard copper/aluminum set-up but with some anti-freeze in the cooling solution to prevent this catalist from occuring.
