Not all Water Cooling systems are created equal, the same applies to air cooling as we all know. A year or two ago, the bragging right was how loud your delta fan could run relative to how low the CPU temp was. Today, you’d better have water cooling just to keep a spot at any forum. W/C is in; Delta fan is out, at least for now.
I call myself an over-clocker because I am cheap. I want more than what I pay for. Today, I am attempting to put together an internal W/C with some modding to see if I could have bragging right. Hey, if I fail from trying, it would be like a soldier killed in battle... .with respect and honor?
The Finished Good
The Starting Point
The salvaged parts: A three year old Codogen case
A left over radiator and pump from a previous review
a salvaged 92mm fan from the beat-up power supply.
The W/C system I reviewed previously from TOPSPEED was external mount and came with the pump and radiator as a single unit (They could not be separated unless you break them).
Before you say, BIG DEAL and jump ship, take a look at the overclocked rig.
1 GHz overclocked!! You got to finish reading this.
