What are your temps like? As well as ambient temperature

Also, how loud is the water chiller?

Love the enthusiastic approach to keeping things cool (pun intended :laugh:)

Ambient temps is 23c/24c, GPU Overclocked and running at 2063MHZ max Temp is 25c and CPU running at 5.3GHz 1.36V max Temp is 35c and the water is cooled at 10c

The Chiller it is not that loud and when i wear the Headset i don't hear it at all.

WOW o_O, those temps is what I aim for! (albeit if you look at my system specs I'm far from it :laugh:).

You don't get condensation on your GPU block right (I assume you have a way of keeping it above ambient)? I know if the temp drops below ambient you will start getting water droplets forming.

Its pretty much a done deal that this is a good way to go, because the amount of radiators is takes to drop this to ambient is just ridiculous and expensive af.

Nice job though, seriously impressed!

I have ran ( i still do it ) GPU/CPU with temps below ambient, the temp below ambient it's not a problem as long as you keep the temp at least 3c/5c above the Dew point, if my ambient temp is 23c and my Dew point is 5c I can drop temps to a minimum of 8c/10c without risking condensation.

The Waterchiller is programmable and i have a Dew point meter, that said, i just check what's my actual Dew point and set the Waterchiller a few degrees above of it.

This is awesome. Some really high clocks at somewhat conservative voltages too, seems like some silicone lottery has been won here

How much does a chiller like that cost you?

I have been most of the time lucky when buying CPUs at least those bought since i moved to Germany.

I paid 380€ for the Chiller

That's not too badly priced considering the cooling power coming out of it

Indeed, any decent custom loop will cost more than that and if you go Extreme as i did 4 years ago spending around 1.200€ for a custom loop that it didn't do half of what the Waterchiller does and with the same amount of money you spend buying Rads you can buy the Chiller.

I voted 10/10 because:

It is very cool to see and have performance in a build, rather than have only aesthetics.
