What made you go Water Cooling?

Discussion in 'Overclocking & Cooling' started by MxPhenom 216, Oct 8, 2012.

?

I went to water cooling because....

  1. of its cooling capabilities

    54.8%
  2. it is quieter

    20.4%
  3. it looks BAD ASS

    17.2%
  4. Money isn't an issue for me. Disposable income FTW

    7.5%

    While holding my compression fittings in my hands I can tell you that you are wrong.

    Like I said, that 355 is a lot noisier than a DDC-1. For such a small loop just get the XSPC with the pump already in it for $50 and be done with it. Besides that, there is absolutely no reason to buy a 355 now that the 35X is out.

    EDIT: Yup, wrong fittings Young Shaver.

    I was talking to Erocker, and he said he can't hear shit out of his 355.

    Mine was not any louder than my D4 and D5 vario, but the DDC1T I have is quiter.


    Also read the title of your fittings before telling people they are wrong. ;)

    Whatever, dude. Like I said, buying a 355 instead of a 35X is asinine, especially since all you need is a DDC-1.

    Well then, what black compression fittings fit my tubing. The ones I have listed are what Erocker linked me to get.


    I found the DCC-1

    I can't stick that pump on my reservior though.

    You seriously couldn't look that up?

    http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l3/g30...on-12_x_58_Compression-Page1.html?id=N3nbJCGq

    Start with the black ones there are 6 different ones on that site alone.


    Wrong again...It will work just fine with the reservoir you listed.

    every single one of those fittings are 5/8 OD. Thanks for showing the same shit I was looking at before....

    I put the link on the wrong line above cdawall. I know the DCC-1 will work with the res I listed, I was talking about MCP35X that Alex was talking about.

    same deal tons of black ones.

    Cooling. Don't care about noise, looks or anything else. Just function.

    All I use is distilled water, cheap ass Lowes 1/2" tubing, and flush it every now and then.

    My computer is on 24/7 unless I am gone on a vacation. Thus the pump runs 24/7.


    I have cleaned out my loop once. I use a mix of high grade industrial anti-freeze, distilled-dionized water, and a tiny drop of antibacterial dish soap. My loop was clean anyway.


    I changed fittings to prevent a small kink in the tubing, but the worst I have had was a tiny leak that left a quarter sized blue (from the moly in the coolant) mark. About a teaspoon of liquid leaked.

    Just making sure you saw this, since it's only $5 more than the res by itself.

    http://www.performance-pcs.com/cata...e=product_info&cPath=59_367&products_id=30282

    I'd go the DDC route, be it the 350 or 355, but I know a few people who really like this setup.

    Hey Feller! Nice to see you around.

    All but the last option, but I voted for the looks, because I honestly haven't benefited from it all that much in the other two areas.
