hi im new to all this liquid cool systems i got just got the evercool wc-202 i have not installed it yet and i was just wandering, would u lose cooling performance if u used regular water insted of distilled water
 

A:liquid cooling system

No. But tap water contains minerals and other impurities that not only make the water conductive (bad if you get a leak, even though that is rare), but also make the water more corrosive. Over time this can lead to rust or mineral buidup in places.

I would not suggest using tap water.

A:liquid cooling system part 2

First of all, I hope you've installed it properly. So lets check if you did.

Did you use thermal paste? If you didn't, you should.

Make sure there isn't any bent parts in your tubes; this restricts waterflow.

Are you sure that the pump is pumping enough water? Not sure how to check this, probably require you to disconnect some parts and see how much flows out/minute. The reason for reduced waterflow is due to excessive pipes, the longer the pipes in your system, the harder the pump has to work, so try to keep them as short as possible.

Lets try these few things first.

I recently posted a thread in the Vista forums about troubles I've been having with my computer. My computer has been shutting down a lot, and I initially thought it was because of the new RAM that I installed. This may have just been a coincidence because I now believe the PC is powering down whenever the CPU overheats, as a result of my cooling system malfunctioning. I am currently using a Cooler Master AquagateS1.

After the PC has been inactive for a while, I go into the BIOS and watch the PC Health Monitor, which displays the CPU temp rise from around 30 degrees all the way to 110 degrees Celsius, promptly followed by the system shutting down. I don't know a whole lot about liquid cooling systems, but I did watch the tubes as I turned it on, and didn't see any of the fluids (or bubbles in the fluid) more or show any signs of flow, as I know it's supposed to do. The computer is still under CyberPowerPC's 3-year warranty, and I want to avoid having to ship it out to Cali for them to take a look, and bringing it to a local PC repair center is another option. Is there anything I can do from home to resolve this issue? And if there's any more information you need to know, feel free to ask.

My question is why my CPU is overheating at idle speeds. Sitting in my bios after 5min. my cpu temp is at 83C. I checked my waterblock even and its on there secure.

For awhile i thought my pump was bad, which it could be, but is it possible that my nb/sb waterblock is bottlenecking/restricting flow?
 

A:Liquid cooling system flows slow

Did you bleed the system? There could be a stubborn bubble trapped in there somewhere. Tilt and rock the system back and fourth to see if any bubbles are freed. 1/2 ID is on the larger side for coolant lines anyway, so the flow is going to be a bit slower opposed to 1/4 or 3/8. Which coolant are you using and did you remember to mix with distilled water? Also, make sure the thermal is making a good bond between the CPU block and core of the CPU.

So, I took apart my PC (XP 2600+, MSI K7N2 Delta L mobo) to quiet it down using Kingwin's Arctic liquid cooling kit and after I put it all back together, it would not start. When I turn it on, it powers up for like a second or even less than that and then shuts down. The fans are spinning and I can see the liquid starting to move and the temperature on Kingwin front panel says 25C (not sure if it's actual or if it's a default reading when the unit is just powered on). There are no beeps from pc speaker, just a beep from Kingwin cooler and then the system shuts down...

I was thinking that the cooling kit might be draining the PS(Vigor 450W) too much since I don't think the CPU would get so hot in under a second that the system would shut down because of CPU overheating (and the cooling block on CPU still feels cold). So, I disconnected all my drives, pci cards, took out the vidoe card, took out memory (everything one at time of course) and still exactly the same result.

After that I decided to unplug the cooling block (so at this point I only had the motherboard plugged in into the PS) and turned the system on. Once again, it shut down in under a second (the CPU block is still cold)...

I thought that since I don't have a cpu fan plugged into the CFAN connector on my mobo, it might think that there is no fan at all and shut down because of that, so I plugged in one of my case fans in there and it did not change anything.

hello i am going to purchase a watercooling system and i was wondering if i could put ice cubes in my resivor to make the liquid ice cold and since the ice would float it wouldnt there wouldnt be a problem with the ice cloging the out take tube at the bottom. i was just wondering if this has ever been done before also would this cause condensation since the ice would make the liquid well below room temp?
 

A:liquid cooling with ice and liquid?

well, in theory it should work but you'd have to keep adding ice cubes in order to maintain cooling. since you are constantly adding ice you also have to continually drain your coolant level. you'd also have the problem of having to keep adding antifreeze or whatever additive you're using to fight molding and whatnot. simply put it would become a troublesome, very expensive, and high maintenance operation. you'd be doing as much work as cooling with dry ice without the benefits. great idea though.

a suggestion along the same lines would be to route your radiator inside a small refrigerator or freezer. a bit expensive also but at least its self-supporting.

Hi, I have had this computer for a while now, a year or so, and it's been fine and never given me any problems at all... Untill a couple of weeks ago, that is. It seems to have developed a habbit of switching itself off, just a complete power cut. From what I understand that's commonly associated with heat problems, and one thing I noticed about my liquid cooling was that the liquid in the tubes had just stopped moving around the system when it's active. I don't have the first clue how to fix this or whats caused it to happen or anything.

It seems to work for about 5 minutes if I leave the computer off for a long period of time (I mean really long, like days or weeks) before it cuts out, but once it's cut out if I try and switch it back on it turns on and cuts off within about 3 seconds every time.

Any ideas greatly appreciated!

In the past 4-5 months I have been enjoying my new system that I built completely from scratch. It is, without a doubt, the best gaming rig I have ever had, and I am very proud of it. It's my pride and joy, but my pride and joy has one problem... and I think it's a pretty big problem, or at least it potentially could be: OVERHEATING.

I ordered all of the parts of my system off of newegg, and when I ordered these parts I also ordered something else that I figured would be very useful considering I was getting a video card and a processor that would probably get pretty hot if used repeatedly (and I use my computer constantly.) I ordered a pretty fancy, $130 liquid cooling system. Now, just from looking at the thing in a small picture on newegg, I figured it would be pretty simple to assemble and I wasn't intimidated by it in the least, but then I receive it in the mail. When I received it, I waited to try and put it together until after I got everything else with my system put together.

Hi, I have a Nvidia GeForce 9500GS that came with my computer and is currently fan operated, temperatures idle at 64 degrees celcius and gaming (left 4 dead) go to a max of 90 degrees celcius which causes me some problems and alot of concern. I'd like to switch to liquid cooling.

My case is pretty cramped so i was thinking of taking out my tv card and modem out to make space in it. Even with that done, the wires in there still cramp it up alot. Another solution would be to have liquid cooling outside the case which i'd like as a last resort. What liquid cooling product would you recommend for my card?

Thank you.

EDIT: I posted 2 pictures of the inside of my case. The second (red) card is my graphics card and the one on top is the card for my tv options (unused).
 

A:Liquid cooling

I'd high recommend not getting into watercooling for a 9500gs, If you want lower temps get an aftermarket air cooler, thermalrites are the best imo and by reviews, reducing temps up to 15C on most cards on average.

I recently watercooled my last computer, it cost me 1k usd to do it in the way I want it, if I were to upgrade I dont see myself going back to air. its a bad habit, dont commit to it, especially for a low/mid end card.

There's no AIO water cooling units for current GPUs, although there was this for the GTX 580. Even if there were they would be costly and totally not worth it. Buy an aftermarket card with a decent air cooler (e.g. Asus DCUII) which will run cool and quiet.

there aren't really "brands" per se for a whole system. We all kind of piece the things together ourselves from different types of components that meet our needs.

I have a couple of different liquid cooled systems, and have used parts from Zalman, Koolance, Danger Den, D-Tek and others pretty successfully. There are always fanbois that will tell you that they read some goofy review somewhere about a specific component, but in reality, it all mostly works pretty well.

The guys are extreme systems in the liquid cooling forum are pretty sober most of the time (not always, some fanbois there too).

koolance and danger den both have pretty broad lines of stuff, all mostly good. Also, FrozenCPU.com has an awesome selection.

Just make sure you get a radiator thats big enough for everything you want to cool. And use at least 3/8" hose (1/2 is overkill most of the time)

Hey guys, I was just wondering if you guys think I should get liquid cooling. Iv just got into overclocking and my over clock on my i5 3570k is at about 4.5Ghz from 3.4. When stress testing I get readings up to 100C. I dont know if my pc fans arnt doing their jobs (it feels like I only have control of 1 of them when messing with my knobs on my case). So I was wondering should I go liquid cooling? If so do you guys have a recommendation on a decent but preferably cheaper liquid cooling system thats compatible with my case, (dont want my fiance killing me)

Any input on any aspects of this would be great! =)
 

A:Should I consider liquid cooling?

You have an NZXT Phantom so I can suggest most liquid cooling systems would fit inside that with ease.

But forstarters, if your hitting 100C, that CPU is throttling and that is dangerous temperature levels for a processor. Are you running on the stock cooler? Because if you are I would turn that back otherwise you may end up burning up the processor.

If you want to overclock that far, liquid cooling would be optimal. Here is my suggestion with the case you have:

Corsair H100i

Very good, very powerful, and will keep your chip nice and cold.

A:CPU cooling -- air or liquid?

Hi Sucoi,
That depends on how far you want to push your OC. Unless you are going to assemble a bespoke watercooling system yourself, I would not bother with any closed loop cooler below the H-100. The H-60/H80 and the like are discernibly out performed by the high end air coolers like The Thermalright Silver arrow, Phanteks PH-TC14PE and the Noctua NH-D14.
as far as leakage, it is highly unlikely that they will leak unless they are damaged.

So I have been using a Swiftech liquid kit to cool my CPU for about 6 months now, and it's great, but there's something that's been bothering me for awhile.

Ever since I rid myself of that miserable nvidia board; swapped the kit into a new setup, there has been this kind of "popping" sound in the radiator that happens quite often. At first I thought it was just a bubble trapped in there somewhere but it's been doing it for a long time and hasn't gotten any better. I've tried the standard rocking/tipping method of trying to free a stubborn bubble many times but that hasn't changed anything. The flow is good and there are no leaks so I can't debunk that noise. Sometimes it's louder than usual and sometimes 10 minutes will pass before it happens again. It doesn't seem to be causing any physical damage (though it is a little annoying to the ear) so I've just been ignoring it. Any ideas what it could be?

A:Alternate liquid cooling

From http://www.supercool.se/pages/calculate.html :

TO COOL DOWN
Cooling effect (Pc = W) required to cool down within a given time (t = s):


where
c = specific heat of object (Ws/g C)

m = mass in grams (g)

DeltaT = temperature difference (C)

Example: To calculate the effect required to cool 5 l of beer (m = 5,000 g) from 20C (which is also ambient temperature) down to 5C (Delta T = 15) in 2 hrs (t = 7,200 s).

Beer is mostly water, thus c = 1 cal/g = 4.18 Ws/g C.
Click to expand...

But if I find you or your buddy wasting good beer I will be round your house with a lynch mob quicker than you can say "The beers are on me". :evil:
With beer being brewed in a process that involves sugar amounst other things I think the density of the beer would be significantly different from that of H2O. It will probably be slightly more difficult to cool, and probably also not draw the heat out of the water block as efficiently...

What liquid is best to run through a liquid cooling system? I have a Thermaltake Aquarius Pro III that I use to cool my 3GHz LGA775 P4 CPU. It registers 25-30c when idle, and 45-50c underload. I know that these are acceptable temps, but I want to go even lower. So what liquid is best for a liquid cooling system?
 

A:Liquids for liquid cooling

Just wanted to know what you guys thought of the EXOS Liquid Cooling System? Just bought one for my pc. The thing works great. It's a Koolance Exos-2. Keeps my system temp down to about 23 degrees C* Just wondered what you guys thought of this brand. Got a pretty good deal on one. Now installed and up and running. Just want some feedback.

NEVER ask for opinions AFTER you make the purchase!!!

Now that you own and use it, YOU are in the opinion giver seat.

hello
if i was to have a computer that had liquid cooling, and at defult clock settings it idles at 25C, can i over clock it untill its tempreture is around 65C? or would the amount of overclockin needed to get that far fry my computer?
 

A:liquid cooling - max cpu speed

give more specs of your system (cpu, board, case, cooling system). cpu's generally are designed to operate at up to around 80 degrees celsuis. higher temps increase thermal stresses and may shorten the operational life of the components.

Hi all,
I just bought a new computer a few weeks ago and I was having tons of problems. I currently found out that my new computer is overheating, and because of this, I want to buy some sort of cooling system. I automatically think that liquid cooling would be better but, of course more risky than fan driven. I am interested in overclocking a bit, but from waht i read my mobo is not the most overclocking friendly. I wish i knew that before i bought it, but anyways, I would like some input or Ulrs to which you think is better, liquid or fan, and why? Also is it hard to install? I built my computer from scratch, so could i instal this or should it be takin into a pro?

Thanx

A:Liquid cooling or fan? Reccomendations please

Because your computer is new it will still be under warranty, so I would suggest that you take it back, as doing anything else will probably void the warranty.

I wanted to try out liquid cooling my cpu so i went out and bought a thermal take liquid cooling system..though i heard that liquid cooled cpu's can accumulate 'condensation' and cause some unwanted side effects such as condensation on the cpu itself/ rusting of pins. I was wondering if anybody experienced this and/or if they have any ways to remedy this from happening?
- Thanks For Any Info
