View Full Version : Help me get started water cooling
10-29-04, 01:41 AM
I just switched to a P4 3.0e system from my a64, I seems to run a little warm on stock cooling but nothing unexpected. I have it overclocked to 3.6ghz but I know it will go higher with more volts but my air cooling cant handle it. I would like to keep the cost down and wanted to know a cheap way to get into watecooling. I was thinking maybe aquariusII or evercool wc201 (can pick one up for $70 on ebay). Are these going to be better than decent air cooling? What else would you guys suggest? I only want to cool my cpu not my gpu so I dont know if that helps.

A heat sink from Thermalright would probably be better than either of those kits. If you want to save yourself money and get results, build your own water cooling system. It's a lot of fun piecing it together.
I am building an external holding unit and am waiting for more G4 Storm blocks from Little River (http://www.employees.org/~slf/lrwb/) to be manufactured. I purchased a pump, Swiftech MCP650 (http://www.swiftnets.com/products/mcp650.asp), at jab-tech.com (http://www.jab-tech.com)and my Fedco 2-342 (http://www.rockauto.com/ref/Stant/Detail.html?9090.gif) heater core at rockauto.com (http://www.rockauto.com).
