DangerDen does sell packages, but the setup i had was made from seperate bought pieces to ensure compatibility. http://www.dangerden.com/ heres the website. DangerDen tend to quickly come out with compatible blocks for any new chip that comes out, they have blocks for all mainstream CPU's right now including GPU's, but you can put together your own system to buy all at once, but usually GPU blocks are an addon, or bought seperatley. the Aquagate by colloermaster I provided a link for in my previouse post uses either 3/8 insh or 1/2 inch tubing and DangerDen make blocks for both tubing diameters so you can mix and match between the 2 companies usually.
ahh can you explain to me what all these basically mean and give me a sudgestion? -Top type -Fittings -Peltier & Neoprene -Water Additives -Hold Down Style
im making a custom one i was just wondering what you think i should get. I got a P4 3.0 with a GeForce 5700LE
-top type- dangerden manufactures the top half of they blocks with a few different materials, metals and a clear glass. -fittings- the diameter of tubing that is used. -peltiers- more advanced stuff, a gadget that can get really cold on one side and really hot on the other, usually used sandwiched between a water block. can take your temp down to 0c or lower depending on the water cooling you provide it, -neoprene is used to isolate your CPU from the rest of your mobo to safegaurd your mobo from condensation which you pelt will produce. -water additives- works like antifreez, helps your water absorb more heat and disipate faster. -hold down style- the harware used to hold the water block in place.
Ok I've had watercooling and I don't recommend it. First off its a bitch to install. Second it takes alot of maintanance. Third and final, it doesn't do too much. Sure it gets the temp down, oh lets say 10 degrees Farenheit. Its not worth it. Don't over clock anything you can't afford. If I were you Id get a nice case with alot of fans. I have a Thermaltake Xaser III which I paid $120 (American) for and right now with all the fans they gave me, and the low end CPU fan the temp is 85 *F in the cpu. I say don't get mixed up in Water Cooling. If you do end up getting water cooling DO NOT GET A THERMALTAKE.
aye aye capt.... id get that koolance if the god damn water blocks wern't so expensive... why do they need to be gold plated, its a waste of money. doesnt anyone know a cooler with equal preformance to the exos but with cheaper water blocks?
gold has a high heat transfer rate so it works better for getting a few more degrees off your CPU. water cooling is a good amount of work to setup safely.
isnt copper better?
copper is good and cheaper, but gold is better but more expensive of course.
