Thread: Water cooling wish list (merged threads)




  1. Default

    Once i get my p4 system up i will be putting a water cooling system into it. I'll be purchasing most of the stuff from DangerDen and heres what i have so far:

    Pump: hydor L30
    Radiator: Heater Core (+ shroud), not sure what the name is but a lot of sites say its very good.
    CPU BLock: Maze 3-1 with copper top, 1/2" chrome fittings, and stainless steal hold down
    Tubing: 10Ft of tygon tubing
    Reservoir: Typhoon-Quad Reservoir
    Additives: 12 ounces of water wetter + 1 ounce UV Water Dye-Lite (blue)
    Fan: either the panasonic panaflow 120mm or the Enermax UC-12FAB-B

    total cost: $250+tax & shipping

    any recomendations?

    Yep: Earplugs!
    Those fans at full speed should make a lot of noise!

    Based on my little watercooling adventure, these are changes to the list of stuff you've come up with that i would go with:
    Pump: Eheim 1048 - mine is nice and quiet, also i've heard something about the hydors being submersable pumps and therefore MAY leak
    Tubing: ClearFlex 60 - half the price of tygon, almost as flexible
    Reservoir: None - besides possible easier filling and bleeding, the res does little
    Radiator: Heater Core (+ 2x shrouds)
    Fan: 2x Enermax UC-12FAB-B - these fans rock, i changed my vantec stealth 12cm fan to 2 of these, they move a llot mroe air than my old fan, and with a little bit of wire chopping and soldering, and a dual gang potentiometer and i have both fans being controlled with one knob :)

    Hope this has helped you :)

    i've seen a couple reviews of hydors and they all say they were great, they just havent been around for very long and that might be the only thing between them and Enhiem.

    i've heard the maze 4's arent as good as the maze 3's. am i wrong for believing this?

    i plan on running the fans at lower speeds for the most part, maybe to piss off some people at lans i'll blast them at full power. not sure how i'll duct the air flow from the radiator fans though but i'll definetly be getting atleast 1 enermax.

    what do you mean by (+2x shrouds)?

    oh, and syx, how do you like these earplugs:

    The fan's aren't really that loud when they are running at full speed.

    From what I can see the Heater Core doesn't have any fan mounts build in so what I meant was, along with the Heater Core buy 2 shrouds so you can mount the 2 fans to it, but only if you are going to use 2 fans on it.

    oh, got ya. probable ony using one though. still dont know where im putting the fan/radiator though.

    at first i wanted it mounted to the top area but this radiator is not only huge but it weighs a ton so it'll probable have to stay on the bottom.

    I would personally put it somewhere down the bottom and orientate it so that the fan is blowing or sucking air from outside the case into the radiator so it gets the first dibs on the cooler air.

    next problem is where to duct that hot air.

    The air being blown out of the radiator woun't be overly warm, so don't worry too much about that. Your PSU fan should take a bit of the air, maybe put a fan at the top or back of your case (if it has places for fans there)
