I think I misunderstood you, Jcrox. My fault.

so you're suggesting a heater core then right?

I think he's talking about snap-on watercoolers like the Freezone. I should have gotten that from his prior post but didn't. I was debating someone over in the 7-series forum about custom watercooling at the same time and got confused.

I have two of the Freezone setups. I modified each with a 120 mm fan that can push 90 cfm at 18 db, so it is much more effective. One of them also uses an Innovatek XX Flow block, instead. Seem to keep up fine. The qx6700 pushed it over the top if it had too much voltage. 3.5 GHz was the OK for benching, but I settled on 3.2 for day to day usage.

One item I have noticed with the pump mount is that it may not prime correctly. In a vertical case, it needs to be tilted to the window side on an ATX mount to get it properly set. After its going, it works a lot more silently, as well.

When I build custom H2O systems for people, I tend to lean towards something a little more like this for a radiator(and really, if you want UBER cool...get 2):

And as for a water pump, I would go with something like this:

I can't seem to find anywhere that states how many gph the freezone water pump will push, but the one above pushes 1800 gallons/hour.

Just installed the CoolIT Freezone and it's extremely noisy at high setting, at mid setting the noise is not to bad.
I'm sure it's defective unit so it's going to go back, but the cooling works awesome.

Actually, if you check out the designs they seem much better than the TEC directly on CPU ideas of old.

Here's a review on the second link with some closeups that make it seem attractive:

http://www.virtual-hideout.net/revie...ec/index.shtml

Even if the TEC failed, you have half of the heatpipes sitting directly on top of the CPU still, so worst that would happen is you get temps of a stock air cooler.

Of course, one of the main reasons I went to water-cooling was for the noise reduction, so I'm not sure I would be willing to give that up even for near ambient temps on the CPU (definitely happier with a GPU on water compared as well)...

Default Re: TiKi RIG DOWN!!!

you're using a t-line right? yeah that can be a pain. I use a res, bleeding air from the loop is a breeze

The thing is that those tecs aren't very good, even working optimally it will not give you much better temps than air cooling would. Moving onto cooling a quad core proc, you'll definately hit the max heat load, I wouldn't even attempt it with one of those air cooled tecs.

No, I have a res. But due to space constraints, my rad (chevy heater core) is bolted at the top and its a pain to get it air free. Lot's of awkward spinning the pc with the loop off/on. At some point I'll finally just pop a hole in and tap it for bleeding, but that won't be till I finally bite the bullet and overhaul/upgrade...

TEC's do suck for power efficiency/heat capacity, but I don't see how that would be a problem for the double heat loop designs in those links. Certainly you'd never have the problem of your CPU getting over 100 C like on that failed freezone (or even on a WC loop that sprung a leak) .
