Enthusiasts have always tried to cool their system as much as possible. But cooling usually came with a cost; it was hard to maintain a quiet system while keeping your system extremely cool. With the coming of water cooling, though, users can have extremely cool computers system that doesn't sound like a jet engine. Today we check out one water cooling solution from Ahanix namely in the Ice Berg 1 water cooling kit!

Installation

 

Since I received a early review sample kit, the manual included is not the one that will be in the retail kit. You can find the retail instruction manual online here.

 

Below you will find pictures of the installation provided to us by Ahanix.

 

Cutting the tubes

 

 

You need to cut the tubing into four pieces. Make sure that you cut the right amount of tubing since it differs from the case to case as well as the position of each of the parts.

 

Setting up the reservoir

 

 

You need to cut about 4 cm of tubing and attach the top of the water pump to the top casing of the water tank. After you have done that, you run the power cable through the marked hole on the top of the casing and clamp it down.

 

 

Then you will need to put the pump into the water tank and close the top casing with 4 screws included.

 

Installing the radiator

 

 

The first step to installing the radiator is installing the 80 mm fan included on the back of the radiator. This is done with 4 screws included with this kit.

 

 

Now you need to mount the radiator to the back of the case with 4 screws. The screws included are a bit big but they really keep the radiator in place.

 

Installing the CPU Jacket

 

 

 

Above you can see the installation for a p4 setup. It is quite simple. First you place the block on top of your cpu. Following that you mount the p4 adapter on it. Finally you use the clip included with your stock HSF to secure it in place.

 

It would have been nice for Ahanix to include one of these clips since not everyone still has there p4 stock cooler lying around.

 

Water Testing

 

 

Finally we needed to make sure there isn't any leak in our setup. We ran tests for about 24 hours. Once we saw there were no leaks, we clamped it on our CPU and started testing.
