TweakTown's Guide To Water Cooling Made Easy - Final Words

By: Andrew Jones | Guides | Posted: Oct 31, 2008 4:00 am

Monitoring and Final Words


If you want to see a difference in your setups cooling abilities, then you will want to have three programs. These include the following :-




HWMonitor -


Prime95 -


When you get into Windows and download the programs, you can run CPUID and HWMonitor to see your system performance in real-time.


Now, if you have a new Intel or AMD chipset on a relatively new motherboard, there will be speed stepping in place which will help your CPU to run really nice and cool.


Run Prime95 and perform some stress testing for a while and watch your processor heat start to ramp up.


With my water-cooling setup detailed in this article, I had a drop of almost 10 degrees Celsius which shows how much better the thermal capacity of the system is over standard copper and aluminium air cooled solutions.


Where to go from here is up to you. With lots of online enthusiast stores stocking components from major water-cooling equipment manufacturers, you can upgrade your blocks on the CPU and GPU as well as buy new tubing, new cooling fluid, reservoirs, radiators and just about every aspect of accessorising you could wish for.


I hope this persuades more people to go the water-cooling route with their rigs at home as the benefits really are tangible in terms of temperature drops and noise reduction.


Not only that, it looks pretty damn sweet, too!
