Default Re: to liquid cool or not to liquid cool...

Thermaltake Volcano 4005 CL-W0037

Use 1/2 in tubing (clear)

Hydor L30 II

CrazyPC UV Blue 5.25 inch SINGLE Bay Reservoir

Thermaltake CL-W0033 T-type Water Temperature Indicator

how about that... of course i would stick a fan on the cpu block/radiator...

or on a second thought... i am a son-of-a-plumber... i could use soft copper tubing instead of that plastic crap... hmm... that could be cool... spray paint the copper, no, polish the copper... that would let more heat out giggity giggity... use rubber connectors and such to go from plastic to copper... that would be awesome no?

no, copper would be a bad idea. 90-degree bends cause a lot of restriction. And dont use thermaltake kits. Just dont. Their resevoirs tend to crack, and pumps die. They perform just as well as a Sythe Ninja and a low CFM fan but are twice the price.

Soft copper... you can bend it to any shape you want... there are no 90-degree bends... only gradual curves
