I am abount to build my frist water cooling rig soon and am looking for some help.

At the moment I use a 72 watt pelter on a vos32 heat sink on a p3 600E @ 900. What I am looking for is the best slot one water block that will take one or two pelters at around 118 watt

Can any one help...

TIA

I would look and read some review on some block before you go buy one. I myself have the maze 2-1 does nice for me with a 156watt pelter on it.. I just order the Z4 block and will do a test on it and compare them. I will Post the results l8ter this week so look back for it... Also I talked to chip over at overclock-watercool and they are comming out with a new block that should be better then anything out on the market ... Here is what is looks like he sent me a few pics... not bad for prototype....


Went this thing comes out i will buy it and do another test with all 2 blocks well... just remember that when cooling with water electricy is not good :eek: LOL... Blackbox Aka Wolfsid

alright people after a couple of hrs installing the new Z4 the Aqua Sink and the Motherboard Water block.. All Bought from overclockershideout.com. I also purchase the Universal Hold Down Device And let me tell U it doesn't work with the Z4 nice with the maze just remember not to tighten it too much or SNAP U break the side parts on the cpu Just like I did anyway I fixed the problem buy buying some Plexiglass and made my own hold down devise with the 4 bolts around the Cpu. I think its a lot better then the side clips.. now for the temps... Notice the difference I bought a prob for all the test and its sitting right next to the core.. the system Z4 cooler with 156watt pelter and a 72 watt on the motherboard...

amd 1.4 overclocker to 1500 just for start

GeForce2 pro 64 Getting the GeForce 3 ti
10000rpm HD maxtor SUCKS its The 2nd one from them and I hear clicking noises coming from the HD again after 3/4 full..

Temps at idle are from of CPU next to core is 15.2c back of Cpu is 28.0c
motherboard temps idle 14.4C not Bad:D

load CPU core temp 16.9c and back of Cpu is 31.0c
load Motherboard temps 17.0c

Z4 Is better then maze2-1 in all ways...
cool better and transfer heat real nice... no big difference in temps... Well this is the test I will be doing another test with the Z4 and the overclock-watercool new Block as soon as it comes out... replies welcome.. .Blackbox AKA wolfsid
