    do watercooling systems actually use a refridgeration unit or just fans blowing through a heatsink???

    forgive my noobness :confused:

    ASUS A7N8X dlx with AMD h/s + fan mounted on n/b and passive on s/b
    X-Micro Ti4200 218mb
    512mb Geil PC3200 (400 MHz) single channel
    Dell 21"
    Enermex 710b case with 4 TMD case fans
    and the usual running gear......

    They use fans blowin' thru a heat exchanger (heater core or radiator).

    ok, and roughly how much cooler does it run compared to the usual h/s & fan set up?

    They use a radiator, or heatercore.

    Though the term radiator tends to be used for both.

    Fin Style Radiator(Heatercore)
    One type is the same thing in a car, the water goes in a reservoir inside, and is cooled by fans blowing over the fins, and the denser the fins are packed, the better.

    Tube Style Radiator
    Another type is just water flowing through tubes instead of a reservoir in the radiator, but the same method of cooling. (Fins with a fan).

    Although some just get a small heatercore from cars and use them at times too.

    Basically, no refridgeration unit.

    The temps compared to HSF unit temps are impossible to say, it fully depends on the set-up, if other components are cooled, and just the hardware used to watercool. (Pump, Rad, Tubing, Waterblock etc)

    A good setup will have the CPU temps not much above room temp which is much better than ya normal HSF setup.
