    Which To Pick.

    This is my first post/day on the forum. What I am planning on doing is getting a lian-li PC-75 with water cooling and a corosive pump.

    What I am not certain of yet is if i should go with AMD or P4? Also what i want to know is which one can be overclocked more, and stay stable at the same time. From what ive read all over the internet with the watercooling i have i should be able to take a 2.0 and make it close to 3 ghz. Il be running 1/2 tubing pumping 2200 litters an hour. I dont know what solotion i should use either. Ive read something about 70% water wetter and 30% antifreeze. What is the best solution to run threw my pipes?

    Lots of Replies Would Be Nice!!!
    Thanks guys

    4GHz is not going to happen with water cooling.
    3GHz from an Intel CPU with ALOT of luck CAN happen.

    I really sugest that you do a quick search through the forums and alot of the answer you hvae will clear up very fast.

    2.2 @ 3.0 w/ water cooling shouldn't be that hard, but I don't think you're gonna get even close to 4.0 GHz...

    i say AMD ALL THE WAY! they are faster and better in many ways, they just dont have the massive mhz, they have pr ratings....

    and what did you say about corosive pump, that didnt really make sence, but if you have metals that dont like eachother you can use waterwetter

    And avoid the antifreeze ... it lowers the heat transfer to water big time ..
    Water wetter increases the heat transfer and keeps all the little critters from growin'

    AMD all the way. Sure you could overclock your P4 cpu by 800mhz or maybe a little more but the performance gain you see is very small, maybe 10-15%. Athlon XPs are cheaper and they are faster. With a good stepping you may get upto 300-400mhz.

    hmm

    Welcome to the Forums BTW!!!

    But in all honesty alot of info is already here and you are replicating linx

    As for water wetter hmm try 1 oz per quart it recommends it on the website but you can try more or less im not 100% sure personally dont use it at all at the mo as im getting used to my bacto friends!

    Also I personally favour AMD allthough an P4 will clock up more in general and run alot cooler! an AMD system is on the whole cheaper and works harder for your cash it may be slower in MHz but its faster in real workings!! PR ratings are pretty spot on!!.

    Hmm and what is a corrosive pump (does it slowly dissolve itself in layer after layer of rust???) LOL.

    the liquid itself wont make the temps go way down or anything.... it take something like a chiller for the temps to go down...

    I reallly see no point to water cool your ram.....

    Like others posted before, search through the forums, I smell alotta misconceptions...

    Ok, I emptied it. At first I didn't see any messages but then I realized it was set to last 5 days. Anyway it's emptied now.
