I agree. Even for 775. But once you have it you love it. And you can reuse your loop again and again (or at least some of the parts) for each rig you build.
For my q6600 my temps aren't fantastic... but my GPU temps are AMAZING. Easily giving me enough cooling to pencil mod it some.
agreed. I hear i7's get hot.
I mix mine with a 120.3 rad now. It brought my CPU temps up quite a bit when I added the GPU in. But it's nice to have everything in one loop. Cheaper, and sexy looking.
I was hoping to see the temp differences in this thread between a i7 920 on air and on water... I guess I have to wait some
you can mix cpu and gpu yes. but i wouldnt, especially not with multiple video cards.
Get some chrome paint. BLING!
you can do it with multiple cards... you just have to have a BUTT LOAD of rad.
more like mine.... http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=216170
EDIT: Good lord fit... that's awesome...
I still don't get it how Digital Storm and such can get away with i7 and triple GPU WC with 3 120 MM rads.
Am I missing something? How does that tubing not melt when everything is loaded?
My two 4890s and the q6600 are feeling fine in the same loop with single + triple rad. I think the CPU temp just got up a few degrees when I added the cards, noticeable, but not that much.
thats awesome. So one in the front, one in the rear, and the big rad up top correct?
yep... im gonna clean up cables and add a black/green theme this week.
It's totally excessive... But all of those fans are barely moving.
hmmm i like it bro, keep us posted on that, imma go ahead and subscribe to your thread now. would love to see some updates of that rig
My water setup was S I L E N T.
My 90mm/air cooled desktop.. not so much..
I need to get new fans in my setup... I added a orange fan I got from a friend and he warned me, but I wasn't expecting it to sound like a leaf blower....
haha, I miss my tornado
Heh.. eVGA Classified Koolance / Naekuh Edition
I personally require water on my main machine because its on 24/7. Also, fit is telling partial truth. But there are times when water will give you that extra OC depending on a good system.
Example.. Sorry fit, a TRUE wouldnt get anywhere close to these temps:
Look at my RealTemp Max Linpack values.
meh.... not impressed.
i need to find some cheap high cfm(100+) 120x25mm fans.
i can do that with push pull yates on low on my PA120.3.
i hate yates.
i want some delta FFB1212EH 's
Water is better suited for high capacity cooling (Large heatloads), as thats what it was initially used for.
Current air cooling has made great strides in effeciency/cooling capacity, but as always it brings the problem of air flow, which is always noisy when you bring high capacity into the game.
Water brings the ability to manage the same or greater load while maintaining superior temperatures/Noise...
However, YMMV with all water loops-> Not all perform the same. Different pumps different blocks, different radiators, different coolant mixes all will give different performances.
If air is outperforming water, you probably need to rethink how your water setup is configured.
remember this picture?
got you topped
mine are dual 560gtx's. i've got more surface area than you.
yeah i saw that now.. lol... u win.. But i got more CFM though my rads. :X
Shourded San Aces are unbeatable.
mine are 267cfm each...
plenty for my setup
