What is water cooling? In the event that you are reading this, then the possibilities are that you’re well conscious of computers generate heat. Especially, specific components inside your system create large quantities of heat over rather small areas: typically your processor chip (CPU), graphics chip (GPU) and northbridge chip. Heat is definitely ‘a bad thing’ for your rig.
Radiators are where the heat dissipates; the larger it is in size, the more surface area will be available to dissipate heat. For radiators I won’t recommend specific models, since it is based on how much cooling performance you want. In theory, a single 120mm radiator can dissipate 150Watts, so 2 X 120mm radiator should handle 300Watts etc. Most radiators from reviews are pretty much neck-and-neck, with little variation in performance. Once you’ve picked out the individual components, you’ll need to design the layout of your water-cooling system. For this, it helps to make a simple diagram, showing how you want everything to be hooked up. A simple system has the water passing from the radiator to the CPU, then to the GPU, the reservoir, pump, and finally, back to the radiator. This design works well because then the water passes over the CPU while it’s at its coolest, and also because the CPU and the GPU tend to be physically near each other. Another advantage with water cooling is that the warmth from a Processor can be spread outside on a much larger area in comparison to the heat sinks on today’s CPU’s. A sizable measured radiator may be placed wherever inside of or outside case so long as there is room.
In water cooling, a reservoir is a pretty simple thing-it’s a tank of water, with an inlet and an outlet. You might wonder why, exactly, you need a big tank of water in your system, since it doesn’t have an immediate function, like absorbing or dispelling heat.
You need to schedule which hardware you wish water cooled, such as if its only a Central processing unit then a 240 radiator is definitely okay. A T-Line isn’t as common as it once was, and that’s probably a good thing really, but I thought I’d include the info anyway. So, what is a T-Line? Well, it’s an alternative to a reservoir, some people may find that if they just don’t have the room for a reservoir, they can usually fit …Read more
