Assembling a water cooler  - Assembling a water cooler
Tue, November 23 2004 | 5:52PM | PermaLink Feedback?
During last few years an enormous progress was made when it comes to creating faster and faster computer units. It has, however, brought up the problem of cooling them, aspecially for someone who puts efficiency as well as silence first. As for today – the idea of effective air cooling is often connected with disturbing noise and in almost 100% cases – that is exactly what it is. That is why some time ago, people tried to think of omething else : how to deal with cooling in a way that would allow computer to work on very high or overclocked parameters without any sound? That is how water, freon or liquid nitrogen cooling became something common and certainly not surprising to anyone. Freon cooling is in fact almost as popular as water cooling. So far, people who apply watercooling are also people who put their computers to quite tough ( or not ) timing, or at least regular hotspurs. Either way – there are many of them, just taking a glimpse on will help you to understand how many people use watercooling. Standard water cooling set consists of : block, cooler, pump and possibly a reservoir, but let’s put everything in the right order. Some theory first. The usual assemblies cooled with water are processors ( CPU, GPU ), chipsets, HDD and feeders. Each one of the cooling assembly has got a special construction that allows absorbing heat from the cooled surface it is stuck to. This kind of construction is called a water block.
