New case for SLI

Recommended Posts

You're still going to need to spend an extra $50 for some decent fans for it, but it will cool your CPU better than the megahalem.

 

Not a bad little kit for a good price, I'd go for it.

 

that xspc kit would be awesome, great price too.

I know hey, it looks like a great buy. But watercooling still worries me a bit. I know nothing of compression fittings, bleeding loops, etc.

 

And as of last week, my fiances took a hit (i booked a trip to UK) so i'll probably put off this till about March.

 

Thanks for all your input though guys.

Its all pretty straight forward.

 

Bleeding air from a loop just involves tilting the case (in some cases) to let trapped air rise and go into the res.

 

Compression fittings are just like barbs, but they use a screw on cover (like a garden hose) that holes the tube onto the barb.

 

Distilled water is non conductive and parts are actually made for watercooling now (rather than back in the day when people used pond pumps and heater cores from cars etc.) so they're designed not to leak.

 

There really is nothing to worry about when it comes to WCing.

 

Lower noise, lower heat output. Totally awesome.

 

Also, just realised that kit comes with fans.

 

Damn, may replace my Swiftech DRIVE220 with that kit when I can afford it...

 

Be interesting to see stats on that pump though.

watercooling isnt a tiny bit as hard as you think it is, you just need to read up and use logic on what you're doing. triple check connections etc.

i wrote a watercooling sticky, might help you.
