Default passive ho cooling

I'm selling my high-end ho setup, but i still have a cheap 600l/h pump and a mediocre cpu waterblock.

I don't have a rad anymore, and i'm not planning to get a new one.

Do you guys think a 5L reservoir will suffice to cool down a XP1800+ tbred b @ 1833mhz, without the use of a radiator?

don't think so.
instead of a rad you could use a bong to cool your water.

bong is an effecient way to cool down the water but the sound
the waterfall noise makes you , do more pippi than you usualy do

The reason why i don't want to use a rad is because i want it as simple as possible. A lianli midtower isn't big enough to fit a large rad, and still have lots of space, and i don't want to put the rad next to my case because that's just plain messy. I certainly don't want a bong cooler.

I'll probably give it a shot anyway, if it cools awfull i'll underclock it.

he wants it simple

RB: use a metal reservoir, the res will cool down faster. you even might glue some heatsinks to the res

If you can't put a rad, where are you going to put the 5L res then eh???

I'd put it on top, make a nice shroud for it, and put some airholes in the lian li (ouch gotta hurt if ya screw that one up) suck air out trought it

i think RB already has the holes for a rad in his lian-li of his previous wc .
maybe just put a small rad (1*120) and you won't loose the two top bays.

I mean to put in on top of the case, and not in the top of the case.
Get a sheet of brushed alu and make a shroud for it.
With rads it's simple, the bigger the better.
Instrad of having a huge aircooler you transport the heat via the water to someplace else. That being the rad. If you use just a res, you'll need someway of cooling the res, which is very clumsy and/or dangerous (Ice->condensation). You can live without a res on the other hand.
