A:Liquid cooler installation help

CPU gets hot while it's running, even when it's not over-clocked. You can use the stock cooler until the H100 arrives. Before replacing the stock cooler w/ the Corsair, you'll need to remove residual thermal compound on the CPU. Looks like the H100 has thermal compound pre-applied.

There's a brief installation video on Corsair's site, have you checked it out?

So what do you guys think of this unit or others like it?

I've noticed my Phenom II x4 965 running hotter and hotter recently. The stock fan with little thermal pad thing doesn't seem to be doing it's job. As a result the fan is ramping up and making a lot of noise. With the hot days coming in to the summer my room is constantly roasting even with windows wide open and the cpu is sitting at 40C idle. I know a good heat sink will cost a decent amount of money so for ?60 can you go wrong with one of these?

A:Corsair H50 Liquid CPU Cooler

Imho, the H50 offers zero benefits of water cooling, yet all the risks of water cooling. Thermalright, Noctua, Prolimatech, Tunique and Zalman all offer better results on air, with no risk of spilling water all over your rig, which the H50 has been known to do. Granted, Corsair has been very good about replacing (for free) all damaged parts, but still...
If you're going to go water, do it right. They're expensive, but they deliver the results: Let us help you be cool!

Hi all. I'm looking forward to buy a low cost CPU Cooler so the one that is within my range which is available is Xigmatec Loki, Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro and Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus. But CM Hyper 212+ is not available anymore anywhere as i think it is discontinued product and Freezer 7 Pro will be available in few days but the reason i did'nt like it is that it has same Clips just like Intel Stock Cooler that needs to be locked to fit the cooler on the CPU. Xigmatek Loki not only cost less than both but has a decent look too. So my question is how's the performance of Xigmatek Loki on stock settings and is it better as compared to Intel Stock Cooler? See my system Specs for more info! Thank You!

A:CPU Cooler Suggestions Please!

There is a newer model of the Hyper 212+ that is called an Evo, I believe. That's my suggestion, because I own 2 of the Hyper212+ and they are still the best air cooler on the market.

Hi guys, I'm currently in search for a laptop cooler. I prefer something wide enough to accommodate the base of my laptop. I've noticed that most of the cooler models tend to cover the laptop's built-in fan located at its left side. I would like to ask suggestions from the community for laptop coolers that would fit my preferences. Thank you

A:HP Pavilion n209tx laptop cooler suggestions

I use one similar to the Vantec LapCool4 w/ext. power supply. Powering the pad's fans with an external power supply (instead of through the notebook's USB port) does not increase the demands (and thus, generated heat!) on the notebook's battery and/or power circuits.

I m fairly new to these forums It seems like a good place for computer talk and especially for some feedback on my situation So the other day I accidently spilled some milk onto my notebook keyboard Toshiba Satellite a -va it Motherboard keyboard in problem? spilled :( crashing Liquid didn t seem as if much went inside but apparently it was enough For the first -or-so seconds only sticky keys and the s key occuring six times on one push were the symptoms But then shortly after my screen started flickering then Motherboard crashing problem? Liquid spilled in keyboard :( random lines of black going through it then big squares of black covering a total of of the screen then it just turned pitch white I immediately turned off the laptop and removed the battery I came back to it around hours later and put in the battery to test it It turns on fine all signs of the power working But the screen is completely black It does not show the startup image of Toshiba or any loading of anything whatsoever But it stays powered on fine So basically I am left now with a Motherboard crashing problem? Liquid spilled in keyboard :( laptop that powers on but has nothing visible onscreen So sorry if this is a long post I d thought I d tell everything that happened exactly for a more accurate response Basically I m looking for what could be wrong with it I m thinking the motherboard failed nbsp

A:Motherboard crashing problem? Liquid spilled in keyboard :(

you did several mistakes:
1st - if you spill some liquid on the notebook you should unplug it from the AC outlet and take out the notebook battery AS FASTER AS YOU CAN!
2nd - NEVER power on the laptop if there's still liquid inside.
3d - then you should take the laptop to near service centre where it will be cleaned from liquid rests and the keyboard will replaced.

if you can't take the laptop to service centre then you have to disassembly it by yourself and clean the liquid without assistance

now you have at least the problem with videochip or the northbridge(if video is integrated) or some PWM controller of the LVDS interface or so.....

BTW - this actions i've described is in the notebook manual. as i see, most of people just don't want to RTFM

A:new cpu cooler, still have to use old cpu fan motherboard plug

Ideally you want to do one of two things. Go into the BIOS and tell it to ignore the fan speed sensor for the CPU, or find a way to plug the new CPU cooler into the motherboard fan connector so it can read the speed sensor on the fan. I don't recommend doing it but you could plug a case fan into the CPU fan connector, or remove the fan from the old heat sink and leave it plugged in. The problem with that is if the fan on the new heat sink fails you motherboard has no way of knowing it and can't shut down to prevent a CPU overheat condition.

A:CPU cooler fastening issue with MS-7826 (Kaili) motherboard

@UNCcustomer7, welcome to the forum. As an old overclocker, these two statements contradict each other: "I have upgraded a GPU and unlocked CPU for my HP pc to give it longer lifetime. The probelm is the motherboard and its stock processor cooler that I need to change in order to increase my CPU clock speed (with intel XTU due to missing bios options)". Unlocking the CPU and increasing the CPU clock speed will not add longer life.  It can reduce the life span.  I always expected that I could reduce the life of the CPU by as much as 30% while overclocking.  You are correct in trying to add a better cooler, however. The problem that you will hav is, HP has their motherboards made to their specs to work with other components.  Therefore, they do use proprietary parts on the motherboards.  For this reason, I am not certain what you can do.  It is difficult to find retail motherboards to fit the stand-offs in the case. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

and an AGP slot for my video card

A:Motherboard Suggestions

That is the Mobo I just ordered, it has an AGP and a PCI-e slot so you can upgrade later. Also, the memory will take DDR and DDR2 up to 2GB. It's a 775 Socket as well. This of course is just a suggestion, it had pretty good reviews on newegg and it's like $60. I haven't received or installed it yet but from what I read about it it should do the trick.

Removed the motherboard just to find out, cannot find part for it..

Difference is the UD3H can do Hybrid Crossfire but thats not much of a high point as the one will run only at x4 speeds, but it still has that second physical PCI-Express x16slot and two more PCI-Express x1 slots as its a ATX rather then a micro-ATX board, but the UD2H board has eSATA, otherwise pretty much the same for features. Both have HDMI and optical audio out.

However if you want a system for gaming you'll want a dedicated video card as the onboard, while fine for everyday stuff, video, and basic gaming, will not provide decent performance for most games at mid to high settings.

I like the Asus B85M-E board (you didn't mention it). Has all the stuff you might want, and won't break your wallet.

Only recommend that you do not get a Gigabyte board, as I've had difficulties with all the ones I've owned (and currently own).

As for the boards you've mentioned, I'm just not sure. Make sure that the boards support your CPU and RAM

I can only help you out a little bit.
1: If you are going to overclock, forget about nVidia's n-tune software, don't use it. its really bad. Just overclock manually.
2: Having 2 nVidia cards in SLI only gives you about 30% of a performance boost. If you have the money, to do SLI, do it. But don't get like two 8800 Ultra's and put them in SLI, its just not worth it. Maybe two 8800 GT'S would be a lot better. Hope this helps -TopgunZX

A:Solved: New Motherboard Suggestions/Advice

There is no motherboard that will be compatible with your current processor and be compatible with future processors. The sockets are changed from the first generation to the current 2nd and 3rd generations of Core i processors.

Also, you are running a Dell, so that generally means a new case as well, possibly a new power supply, and definitely a new copy of Windows as you cannot use a Dell OEM license on a non-Dell motherboard.

Your best bet is to sell the Dell as is, a complete unit, and buy or build a whole new system.

Also, the future proofing you are looking for at gaming may not be possible, new games come out all the time and some push the best hardware to the limit, to be able to handle games on high for the next few years on high may or may not be possible without dropping large sums of money and even then it may not be able to handle it, an example would be the original Crysis game.

For a inexpensive upgrade that would actually make a performance difference, a motherboard wouldn't make a difference FYI, you could upgrade the graphics card to a GTX 560 Ti or something similar as that would fit into the $200 budget. But you need to check your power supply to see if can handle it.

Hi Androider86, Welcome to Sevenforums.

I am sure you will get the best suggestion here for the upgrade you are looking for.
first of all, tell us what is your budget? If you want to buy a top range motherboard, you can. But, if you are planning to install the same CPU that you currently have, it won't work. You need to but a good CPU with that as well.

If you are planning to buy PC for gaming. Then I will suggest you to have good motherboard, CPU, GPU, 8 GB RAM, a good cabinet to put all these in and most important a good power supply to give enough power to all these components.

But, we can suggest the hardware once you give us your budget.

I'm looking to replace the logic board in my desktop system with a PCI Express-capable model. The current logic board is an Asus P4C800-E with a 3.4 ghz P4 CPU.

What I would like is:
1 16x PCI Express slot (two would be better)
at least 4 other PCI slots
USB 2.0
Onboard gigabit Ethernet
Has to play well with the current processor

My upper limit is around $250 for the board. Suggestions?

A:PCI Express Intel-Compatible Motherboard Suggestions?

A socket 478 p4 board with pci-e is not too common.
I also doubt you'll find one with 4 pci slots as well(although they have some pci-e x1 slots too).
Here're two I could find w/ pci-e and socket 478.
After looking at both, I'd definitely go with the albatron model of the two, it has 1 more pci slot, and also has full pci express x16(not the asrocks "agi express", which is limited).
The downside to the albatron is that it only has 1 ide port, so you could only have 1 ide hd if you have one cd/dvd drive, or no ide drives if you have 2 cd/dvd drives. It basically means you need to use sata hard drives with the board, (or you'd have to get a pci/pci-e x1 ide controller to add 2 more ide connectors).
^that has 2 ide connectors if you'd need more ide connectors. It also adds usb and firewire.

If you need firewire you can add a card like this(or if you need ide ports and get the above, firewire is already built in).
Or if you don't want to tie up a pci slot, you could get a pci-e x1 model like this.

And if you need gigabit ethernet, same situation, you can get pci or pci-e x1.
Here're 2 x1 cards.

So if you got the albatron board, the pci-e x1 firewire card, pci-e x1 gigabit ethernet card, you'd mostly have your requirements(you'd have 3 pci instead of 4).
Also, if you fill both pci-e x1 slots, you'd need to make sure your graphics card only take up one slot(or you'd lose the one x1 slot if you got a dual slot card), as many newer cards use two slots.

So the price including the adapters(firewire, gigabit), would be about $230.

I am woefully void of knowledge on what motherboards would work with this 45nm processor. Here are a few his parameters:

1. He doesn't/won't overclock.

2. He doesn't want SLi or Crossfire.

3. He needs something rock stable; no need for all the extras or the tweaking. Stock will do him fine.

He is significantly limited in PC knowledge and that is why stable and steady is very important.

I currently have a 1.60 GHZ P4 on a pV4xasd2 VIA Mobo, brand new power supply purchased a month ago with two 256mb DDR Ram sticks. I recently attempted to install a newly purchased intel 865GBF mobo, but after install system would not boot (fans spin, but no post) all supplies meter check ok, monitor ok etc. I then replaced the original mobo and it too would not boot/post. (tested both with only the CPU and Ram installed). At this point I suspected that I had damaged the CPU so I took it too the local shop to have tested in a known good system...tested OK. I did read something in the material of the intel Mobo on a potential differentiation (and thus incompatibility) with the 1.60 P4 that I have and a 1.60a? I've ensured that all the standoffs are OK (not grounding to the chassis)

chipsets have a higher heat tolerence than CPUs, 40c is a safe operating temp. also, temp sensors are not accurate, so you can't really go by the reading from it anyways. it's not unusual for software based sensor to be as much as 10c off the actual temp.

the cooler you bought should work fine. did you thoroughly clean the chipset and heatsink with isopropyl alcohol and then apply new thermal compound before mounting the cooler?

hello i am going to purchase a watercooling system and i was wondering if i could put ice cubes in my resivor to make the liquid ice cold and since the ice would float it wouldnt there wouldnt be a problem with the ice cloging the out take tube at the bottom. i was just wondering if this has ever been done before also would this cause condensation since the ice would make the liquid well below room temp?

A:liquid cooling with ice and liquid?

well, in theory it should work but you'd have to keep adding ice cubes in order to maintain cooling. since you are constantly adding ice you also have to continually drain your coolant level. you'd also have the problem of having to keep adding antifreeze or whatever additive you're using to fight molding and whatnot. simply put it would become a troublesome, very expensive, and high maintenance operation. you'd be doing as much work as cooling with dry ice without the benefits. great idea though.

a suggestion along the same lines would be to route your radiator inside a small refrigerator or freezer. a bit expensive also but at least its self-supporting.

A:Good mid-range to high-end Intel LGA 1155 motherboard suggestions

The best board I've used thus far -a combination of stability, feature set, ease of use and overclock ability would be the Asus P8Z68 Deluxe/Gen 3. It features a PLX bridge chip which allows use of virtually all features concurrently ( the third PCIe x16 @ x4 isn't downgraded to x1 for instance if you use most/all of the SATA 6Gb/USB3.0 ports).
If you don't need a full-size board then the ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z/GEN3 at around $180 might make some appeal. Both these boards have no facility for video-out (no onboard HDMI, DP, DVI, D-Sub) - not a great concern for most people looking at Z68 boards.

Word of warning: Z77 boards are reportedly due for release on 8th April. While they will offer very little (if anything) over Z68 boards, it will mean that Z68 board prices will take a nosedive. My advice if you need a board right now and want to save some cash, would be to pick up a functional and well regarded cheap board such as the P8Z68-V/G3 (which still a very nice board) and maybe look to replace it with one of the top-end boards which will surely drop in price. It does mean that you would have the hassle of finding a buyer for a board, but on the plus side you may find yourself happy with the P8Z68-V.

You'll notice that all the selections are Asus based products. Asus -at least for Z68, seems to be putting out the best boards overall. Some other vendors are having QC problems. Gigabyte, which are normally my first choice in mobo making, have some infuriating reboot loop issues with some boards that still remains even with the latest BIOS updates.

The 1 fan which is mounted is intake.

I have the 212+ as well. You'd want one push and 1 pull. Also, make sure the 2nd fan moves the same amount of air as the 1st, or you'll create a bottleneck of sorts. But with 2 fans that have equal airflow, you will notice a drop in temps. But there will be more noise, unless you change both fans to a quiet fan like Noctua's. A Guy

Hey guys,

I've got a brand new core 2 duo stock cooler from my old PC, and it seems much better than the stock cooler I got on my i5: cooper base, twice as much heat sink and pretty much the same fan. I was wondering if it would work better on the i5 than the tiny little I think I got along with it. Place your opinions, I'll test it this afternoon and post the results.

A:CPU cooling -- air or liquid?

Hi Sucoi,
That depends on how far you want to push your OC. Unless you are going to assemble a bespoke watercooling system yourself, I would not bother with any closed loop cooler below the H-100. The H-60/H80 and the like are discernibly out performed by the high end air coolers like The Thermalright Silver arrow, Phanteks PH-TC14PE and the Noctua NH-D14.
as far as leakage, it is highly unlikely that they will leak unless they are damaged.

I want to make my PC as quite as possible, now that it's being used more and more for gaming and TV/media things. I built this computer and am very confortable with that kind of stuff, but one area I'm lost on is how to buy the correct items for a liquid cooling system for this rig.what I have is a socket AM2+ mmob and 2 4850's I want to cool at a low cost (max price is 250ish) I need someone to explain what I need and why I need it (just so I can learn about it)

You won't get a decent water cooling for that price. Just get passive coolers for both CPU and graphics cards. Examples: and errr... Not passive choices really.. (passive)

A:liquid cooling help

there aren't really "brands" per se for a whole system. We all kind of piece the things together ourselves from different types of components that meet our needs.

I have a couple of different liquid cooled systems, and have used parts from Zalman, Koolance, Danger Den, D-Tek and others pretty successfully. There are always fanbois that will tell you that they read some goofy review somewhere about a specific component, but in reality, it all mostly works pretty well.

The guys are extreme systems in the liquid cooling forum are pretty sober most of the time (not always, some fanbois there too).

koolance and danger den both have pretty broad lines of stuff, all mostly good. Also, has an awesome selection.

Just make sure you get a radiator thats big enough for everything you want to cool. And use at least 3/8" hose (1/2 is overkill most of the time)

I plan to buy a new graphics card very soon for my machine. I plan to purchase an AMD Card.

The plan originally, was to wait until the 8000 series cards are released on the 25th. I also wish to Liquid-cool the card.

Does anyone know of liquid-cooling kits for gpu's. Similarly like that of a Corsair h100i where everything needed is in a single kit?
Pump, Block and Radiator+Fan?

Without going into lots of money to purchase a limited edition card, are there any cards with liquid cooling pre-installed?

How long after amd releases there cards can I expect 3rd party manufacturers to release liquid looking for them.

How long after they release there cards can I expect 3rd party manufacturers to release there own cards, eg: Sapphire?

A:GPU and liquid cooling

There's no AIO water cooling units for current GPUs, although there was this for the GTX 580. Even if there were they would be costly and totally not worth it. Buy an aftermarket card with a decent air cooler (e.g. Asus DCUII) which will run cool and quiet.

Hey all -- Just a simple question. does anybody have any experience comparing Avid Liquid and Avid DV? I am looking to purchase either for a startup business. I have been using DV Pro w/Mojo at work but Liquid is a heck of a lot cheaper. I understand that Liquid does not provide the same I/O but for now I will be working digital only. I also understand that they are 2 different products. I am concerned about output and ease of use.

Any info will be helpful. Need to make a decision and purchase soon.


A:Avid Liquid or DV?

Liquid is fairly powerful, but let me tell you, it does things in a different way then almost any NLE I have tried. If you feel comfortable with Avid DV PRo---then definately stick with Avid DV. By the way, I edit for a living and for all my DV work I use Vegas Video---the most stable and complete NLE I have ever tried. The only problem is that they do things differently then both Avid products and there is a bit of a learning curve. If you want to try it, they have a 30 day demo over at the Sonydigital media website.

Hey guys, I was just wondering if you guys think I should get liquid cooling. Iv just got into overclocking and my over clock on my i5 3570k is at about 4.5Ghz from 3.4. When stress testing I get readings up to 100C. I dont know if my pc fans arnt doing their jobs (it feels like I only have control of 1 of them when messing with my knobs on my case). So I was wondering should I go liquid cooling? If so do you guys have a recommendation on a decent but preferably cheaper liquid cooling system thats compatible with my case, (dont want my fiance killing me)

This is my case

Any input on any aspects of this would be great! =)

A:Should I consider liquid cooling?

You have an NZXT Phantom so I can suggest most liquid cooling systems would fit inside that with ease.

But forstarters, if your hitting 100C, that CPU is throttling and that is dangerous temperature levels for a processor. Are you running on the stock cooler? Because if you are I would turn that back otherwise you may end up burning up the processor.

If you want to overclock that far, liquid cooling would be optimal. Here is my suggestion with the case you have:

Corsair H100i

Very good, very powerful, and will keep your chip nice and cold.

Hi, I have a Nvidia GeForce 9500GS that came with my computer and is currently fan operated, temperatures idle at 64 degrees celcius and gaming (left 4 dead) go to a max of 90 degrees celcius which causes me some problems and alot of concern. I'd like to switch to liquid cooling.

My case is pretty cramped so i was thinking of taking out my tv card and modem out to make space in it. Even with that done, the wires in there still cramp it up alot. Another solution would be to have liquid cooling outside the case which i'd like as a last resort. What liquid cooling product would you recommend for my card?

Thank you.

EDIT: I posted 2 pictures of the inside of my case. The second (red) card is my graphics card and the one on top is the card for my tv options (unused).

A:Liquid cooling

I'd high recommend not getting into watercooling for a 9500gs, If you want lower temps get an aftermarket air cooler, thermalrites are the best imo and by reviews, reducing temps up to 15C on most cards on average.

I recently watercooled my last computer, it cost me 1k usd to do it in the way I want it, if I were to upgrade I dont see myself going back to air. its a bad habit, dont commit to it, especially for a low/mid end card.
