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!

It's not real hard, just read the instructions carefully. They won't be real descriptive. You Tube has a bunch of videos to show you how. They are good coolers. Get some quality thermal paste instead of what comes with it. This is a different socket, but the same process.

I am building a PC that includes an Intel i5 CPU and an Asus P8 Z77-V LX mobo. Due to better fitting of the connecting wires. I placed the CPU cooler/fan on the CPU with the top pointing left or to the back of the case.
As the top of the mobo is pointing to the top of the case. The top of the CPU cooler/fan is pointed to the back of the case. Will this work without a problem? Will it damage anything to try it?

That is actually the correct way do install an HSF since it blows the hot air towards the back of the case and through the vents.

A:Problem with Cooler Master chipset cooler RUNNING HOT!

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.

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

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)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

So last night was pretty crazy until someone decided to place there mixed alcohol drink on top of my mates computer. My mate tried turning it on after some cleaning nothing attached to the motherboard works (eg cha-fans) and cpu. His drives connected directly to the PSU are fine and running but nothing from the motherboard is working.

The 'mixed fruit alcohol drink' landed directly on top of his GPU and slid down the motherboard.

Things he has tried:
Removing ram and trying boot
Removing GPU and trying to boot.
Replacing the CMOS battery (Not sure if that would work anyways)

So what's the best way of going about fixing this problem?

A:Computer liquid spillage.

Most likely you are going to have to start swapping parts ie mb, ram, pw supply, etc. It would really help if you posted your exact system specs. Note do not post "500W pw supply" post the exact brand and model# Do this for all of your parts.
Modern systems have pw applied all of the time; even with the system OFF, pw is on the mb. This can cause problems with any liquid spill.

A:liquid cooling - max cpu speed

give more specs of your system (cpu, board, case, cooling system). cpu's generally are designed to operate at up to around 80 degrees celsuis. higher temps increase thermal stresses and may shorten the operational life of the components.

I would like to upgrade from 16gb to 32gb of RAM. 2 of my 4 DIMM slots are occluded by the liquid cooling radiator in my PC. The documentation for the computer states that 2 of the 4 DIMMs (ie the occluded ones) cannot be upgraded because of the liquid cooling. However, it looks like if I removed 4 screws and the radiator/fan, I could access the 2 DIMM slots in question without disturbing the liquid cooling (pop in new RAM, screw back in the radiator). Has anyone tried this that can verify before I start pulling it apart?

So I was wondering what people thought about the mineral oil submersion technique as a method of aqueous PC cooling as opposed to cooling with fans or liquid coolers of other types. I found this site to be quite interesting. And seeing as mineral oil is non conductive it's safe to submerge your PC in, the only issue being that if you need to work on your PC, well it'll be coated in mineral oil.

-Erik S.

A:Mineral oil liquid cooling

Mineral oil systems are nice, albeit rare. The problem I see with them is that mineral oil acts like an insulator, and does not dissipate heat very well at all.

If someone were to make a low power "net top" computer for browsing the internet and doing basic office tasks I could see where they would work well, while giving your workspace feng shui. They don't seem to be practical at all for gaming though.

I just bought a new computer a few weeks ago and I was having tons of problems. I currently found out that my new computer is overheating, and because of this, I want to buy some sort of cooling system. I automatically think that liquid cooling would be better but, of course more risky than fan driven. I am interested in overclocking a bit, but from waht i read my mobo is not the most overclocking friendly. I wish i knew that before i bought it, but anyways, I would like some input or Ulrs to which you think is better, liquid or fan, and why? Also is it hard to install? I built my computer from scratch, so could i instal this or should it be takin into a pro?

My buddy is using water cooling using the open bucket method and i was wondering if there would be any change if instead of H2O he used beer if there would be any major change in cooling?:chef:

A:Alternate liquid cooling

From :

Cooling effect (Pc = W) required to cool down within a given time (t = s):

c = specific heat of object (Ws/g C)

m = mass in grams (g)

DeltaT = temperature difference (C)

Example: To calculate the effect required to cool 5 l of beer (m = 5,000 g) from 20C (which is also ambient temperature) down to 5C (Delta T = 15) in 2 hrs (t = 7,200 s).

Beer is mostly water, thus c = 1 cal/g = 4.18 Ws/g C.
Click to expand...

But if I find you or your buddy wasting good beer I will be round your house with a lynch mob quicker than you can say "The beers are on me". :evil:
With beer being brewed in a process that involves sugar amounst other things I think the density of the beer would be significantly different from that of H2O. It will probably be slightly more difficult to cool, and probably also not draw the heat out of the water block as efficiently...

Band of power supply?

There's a thread somewhere around here which says that most cheap power supplies don't get anywhere close to the rated power, as the conditions needed to get to the rated power is at impossible temps (and probably theoretical rates).

Another problem MIGHT be that while installing the W/C system you might have loosened some connections or something. Probably not the case, but might help.

Better check there is no leakage too.... but if you had installed it properly leakage shouldn't be a problem.

I spilled fluid onto my Dell Inspiron vista a few months back and had no problems for awhile until about a month or two ago when it started to Spilled on keyboard liquid behave erratically The thing would be bringing up the right click menu constantly the mouse pointer would move all over the place by itself and clicking on desktop icons wouldn't do anything I managed to stop this from happening however by turning it Spilled liquid on keyboard off and removing then reinserting the battery Then earlier today I was playing League of Legends and completely lost control of everything I had to hold down the Spilled liquid on keyboard power button to turn it off I did the battery removal but it's not fixing it anymore The laptop's behavior is different this time as well The mouse pointer doesn't move by itself anymore the right click menu doesn't appear by itself and there is a beeping sound like the one you hear when certain key combinations are pressed Also when I click a desktop icon every icon in that row is highlighted and pressing keys only sometimes has any effect never the intended one edit I forgot to add activating the on screen keyboard from the control panel does nothing as well Thanks in advance for any suggestions

So I am new to liquid cooling and I was thinking about getting it for my CPU. I'm posting because im not sure what exactly I need for it to work right. I was hoping someone could go on and get my one link (or a couple links) of everything that I would need to do the liquid cooling.
This is my CPU:

Thanks everyone ahead of time!

I've always used fans for cooling and just installed a new liquid cooling system. I don't know why but it's not working. The water is circulating through it but it's not well....cooling. Help please.

If I need to replace it tell me how please. I don't wanna screw it up.

I'll be starting my pc build soon but I had a question for you guys. Do you think water cooling is worth the money? I was looking at the Corsair H100 cpu cooler on new egg - People have said good things about it on the reviews. Also I have read on other forums where people claim they were able to overclock thier cpu higher because water cooling does a better job cooling then aftermarket fans. If this is true then it seems like its not such a bad thing to have.

What liquid is best to run through a liquid cooling system? I have a Thermaltake Aquarius Pro III that I use to cool my 3GHz LGA775 P4 CPU. It registers 25-30c when idle, and 45-50c underload. I know that these are acceptable temps, but I want to go even lower. So what liquid is best for a liquid cooling system?

Ok I dropped my 13 inch MacBook Pro into a small bowl of water 3 days ago. I did the normal stuff like power it off, leave it upside down for a cpl of days, however several days afterwards when I tried to turn it on the screen still does not light up. I need to repair it as soon as possible b/c I am leaving the country this wk and have to stay connected to my online classes. Can someone please help me repair it or tell me what parts I should replace such as the logic board.

Hi!I spilled juice on my desk and the juice traveled to the bottom left of my laptop where the vents are. I powered it off immediately and unplugged it. The battery was not attached to the laptop at that time. After wiping away the liquid on the case with tissue and a bit of isopropyl alcohol, I opened up the bottom and inspected to see if there was any leakage. There was no liquid found inside the laptop. To be sure, It's now drying in front of a fan. Any recommendations or advice to possibly salvage my laptop?

hi im new to all this liquid cool systems i got just got the evercool wc-202 i have not installed it yet and i was just wandering, would u lose cooling performance if u used regular water insted of distilled water

A:liquid cooling system

No. But tap water contains minerals and other impurities that not only make the water conductive (bad if you get a leak, even though that is rare), but also make the water more corrosive. Over time this can lead to rust or mineral buidup in places.

I would not suggest using tap water.

I've been hearing about liquid cooling for a computer. Is liquid cooling better than air cooling? If so, why is it better? Is liquid cooling for all computers ? Do only gamers use liquid cooling? Why aren't computers manufactured with liquid cooling?
My new computer was bought in Sept.2005 Can I have someone add liquid cooling to an OEM (Compaq Presario)computer bought at a retail store, while
it is under warranty? With my last computer= the hard drive & power supply burned up, and I never saw the problem coming. Now we are worried.

A:Is liquid cooled for all computers?

Liquid cooling is mostly used for overclocking the processor and video card. It works well but is complicated to install and a leak can ruin your system. Its not really for the casual user.

Hello everyone I am looking to either upgrade my case to water cooling or to just buy a new one If i Systems? Liquid Cooling were to buy a new one it would HAVE to be through NewEgg and under This is the case i currently have http www newegg com Product Product aspx Item N E If it is suggested to stick with my case can someone tell me EVERYTHING i would need to buy in that case Because i read some things on water cooling but i m still a complete noob If you need more information just ask i respond quickly Any guidance Liquid Cooling Systems? will be very much appreciated Note I also prefer to buy a pre-done liquid cooling system i don t trust myself to mess up and leak on my board My desire is to just upgrade nothing is getting hot my system is cooled fine But i just want the liquid cooling for future proof just an upgrade i had in mind to do I have a video card If problems do occur with the liquid cooling i more than likely would be able to repair it the install is what scares me But i simply just want it I would prefer not to add to my current case since it has taken some damage and i lost some screws here and there But i like the size i don t wanna go bigger is there bigger lol anyways size is fine where its at I guess CPU and video card would be the biggest things i want done but if i have to install seperate components just for one i wanna do it all ya know nbsp

A:Liquid Cooling Systems?

1) that link doesn't work, so I can't see the case
2) if you aren't having cooling issues, then upgrading is a waste of money.
3) there is always a chance of leaking, even with a prebuilt system. hardware fails, it's a fact of life.
4) most kits include a single heatsink for just the cpu
5) they can also create more noise and/or heat (outside the case). You are replacing the fans on the cpu/gpu with larger fans on the radiator to keep the liquid cool

I know this has to be one of the silliest questions ever asked but seeing being that I have never really had the chance to mess with liquid I feel I should ask this...Whould a processor need thermal compound on it before adding the liquid coolant or should that even matter I've been looking for manuals on that stuff and can't really find anything and I plan on uppin my friends athlonxp 1.18 to a sempron 1.83. Well reality is he's gettin my old semp 1.83 while I'm gonna waste a little bit more money and get a Sempron with a barton core at 2ghz

A:A question about liquid coolant

Yes, a water block still needs thermal compound.

I was at work when some one spilled liquid in my desktop. they said there was 3 loud pops and now i get no power. the power supply doesn't work as its fried. the mother board had some spots in it. if the power supply fried what else could it have taken with it?? i want to buy a new power supply and put it in and try to turn it on but i don't know what if any thing else is shorted out.

i need help to start a trouble shooting solution to it. would pics help anyone. i will clean the spot off the MoBo due it can cause shorts. i would use a Multimeter but i don't know what the range is for Ohms. any help would be nice.

I wanted to try out liquid cooling my cpu so i went out and bought a thermal take liquid cooling system..though i heard that liquid cooled cpu's can accumulate 'condensation' and cause some unwanted side effects such as condensation on the cpu itself/ rusting of pins. I was wondering if anybody experienced this and/or if they have any ways to remedy this from happening?

Good Morning to one and all... First post, working out how the forum works I have quick question, hopefully quick to answer as well! I have a notebook that's failed the warranty water damage test. to be honest.. much to my suprise, as the notebook failed over night during a rebuild in a locked IT office after being soak tested for 3 days. (apologies for the pun!) So my question is the water damage test a visual scan of components for signs of corrision or other discoloration or does the laptop have a built in litmus test? or both? And also can historical water damage cause a complete catastrophic failure from fully functioning, say 12 months later due to corrision? Doombadger

Recently, I've accidentally spat water on my friend's LCD monitor after coughing while drinking. I've wiped the screen, but for the past couple of days, the display is seriously messing up.
There are lines of dead pixels, and dark patches of faded-out liquid.

Do you know how this problem can be fixed or minimised?

I don't have the money to buy a new one or get it repaired at the moment, but I'm willing to give it my best to try to fix it.

This is roughly how it looks like:


A:Liquid in LCD monitor is getting messy

Unfortunately there is nothing you can do appart from replacing the lcd screen (repair which will cost more than buying a new monitor) or buy a new monitor from someone like amazon or ebuyer which have very good deals - or risk buying used on ebay.
