View Full Version : Silent Stream, budget water cooling

08-17-04, 04:31 PM
I am seriously looking into the Silent Stream water cooling kit, it's only $65 at www.pctoyland.com and simple to set up. Performance wise it falls in line with high end heatsinks (with loud fans like the vantec tornado). Do you think it's a worthy purchase? What other advantages do water cooling offer?

If your overclocking or not happy with your current cooler feel free to buy should be less noisy and better heat dissipation offcourse getting full water setup might be more fun to cool down video GPU also, that site got some realy nice items :D need cash :(

Hmm, I might go with this Kingwin kit http://pctoyland.com/prod_642.htm . It's $90 and comes with CPU and GPU blocks. Would anyone happen to know if the included GPU block would work with the GT?

Only cooler for GPU , none for rams , if ya want best cooler for GPU Danger Den got one very expensive but best you can get :D 6800 block 125$ (http://www.dangerden.com/mall2/more_block3.asp?fmmore=237) offcourse you don't have to overcloak ram just core .

I was very disappointed with my Silent Stream on a Barton 3000+. The first time I set it up it was perfectly quiet. My spouse didn't even know the machine was on.

However... next time I drained it I was unable to make it quiet again. Tried to bleed it in various ways for three weeks, to no avail. It had become louder than the fan it replaced, so I took it off my rig and now it's in my closet.
