Guys,


I am debating upon possibly trying a watercooling setup for my 6800Ultra/Athlon 64 3500+. How safe is watercooling these days? What are some good small/leakproof kits or setups that you guys can suggest?


Thanks,

Y2J

If you do it carefully it's a safe and good way too cool your components. The major downside is the high price!

I've never used water cooling before, and I'm looking at buying one of these kits: http://hexus.net/content/reviews/review.php?dXJsX3Jldmlld19JRD03OTEmdXJsX3BhZ2U9Mg= =

They also do kits with NB and GPU blocks on them. But I'd want to fit the Danger Den block on my 6800 Ultra. http://www.dangerden.com/mall2/more_block3.asp?fmmore=237

I've used three water cooling companies
- Koolance: good price/performance. Quiet. Inexpensive. Complete easy setup.
- Innovatek: Pricey HIGH HIGH quality. Assembled system myself with considerable research: Zero noise passive radiator on 24/7 without noise. NONE ZERO. Awesome
- Globalwin: low price, complete easy setup, as loud as air cooling. CPU hot as air cooling.

ok, I've been reading some reviews for the bigwater water cooling kit and wow, all great reviews especially for the price! OK, I have a amd 3400+ clawhammer (754), according to that kit it won't fit my cpu so if i wanted to get that kit and then just replace the cpu water block, could i? and if so, what would u guys recommend?

Also, what kind of water block would i need for my x800xt pe?

EDIT: well, i was looking at some reviews more, and it says Application: Intel LGA775, Intel P4 478 pin, AMD K7, AMD K8, AMD Sempron, while my processor is socket 754.........now maybe i'm an idiot, but my 3400 doesn't classify as one of those does it? semprons are 939, and amd k7 and k8 are both older cpus arent they?

if the waterblock can be mounted on a s939, s940, it sure as hell can be mounted on the s754 ;) Trust me the retention mechanism is the same for all these sockets :D

...amd k7 and k8 are both older cpus arent they?

AMD K7 is the Athlon XP vintage cpu, while the K8 are the shiny new A64's, I believe.
