    only prob with oil is that it congeals and clogs the components, what you want is inert liquid :biggrin

    lol. I'll wait for hydrogen to become cheap, I wouldn't fancy my room smelling like a chip shop all day long :)

    you can't use liquid hydrogen for long term use only for short term benchmarking. You'll need a multi-stage cascade phase cooling system to reach the pressures required to cause hydrogen to evaporate. using an auto cascade with propane and carbon dioxide will get you close to -70'c :)

    mad, there's plenty of snow still around mine. If I can keep it frozen all the time I could use that :blink

    all you need is some plasti coat spray for any exposed pcbs and dielectric grease for the cpu pins to keep off the condensation :)

    I might attempt water cooling whenever I build my next comp, although I'll need to do some reseach as it's a bit daunting but it's not gonna be for a while yet.

    i thought that but it's piss easy. first time prob best to create the lop/s ouside the case and run it for 24 hours then test for leaks before you install it. although you could just use inert liquid and then you go no worries. i used deionised water, water wetter and UV die

    cool, I suppose I was worried about overclocking incase I did anything wrong but everything seems ok so far. I did 9 hours of stress testing yesterday and have been playing games today without any issue. I'm not brave enough to try it any further though. So I shouldn't be worried about water cooling.

    Generally speaking I've always found water and electrickery don't mix too well together :p

    Yep, I am not sure if using water makes much difference apart from the noise. I am qute happy with my system for now :D

    That be where you're wrong. You want see a huge temperature drop but you'll be able to chuck more heat at it with out the temps going up as much. Which means you'll get more out of your overclocking :)

    Ahhh so less temp = more voltage = more MHz = faster CPU

    Do you have to change the water every so often?

    MY mobo at the moment has a built in water block and came with a pump of some description, and my case has holes in it at the back for pipes.

    EDIT: Do you know of any apps etc that show you your northbridge & southbridge temps and all that sort of stuff as I have been told the ones you get with motherboards are crap like the Asus PC Probe.

    Maybe you could build in a flush system like a toilet ? :p

    you dont want to up the volts if you can avoid it as it puts a strain on the cpu/chipsets and increases heat. you do it to stablise your overclock

    if you use the correct fluids you wont have to change it at all. if you dont you'll get all kinds of algae crap growing lol

    A waterblock on the chipset ? why'd you buy a mobo with a waterblock attached if you're not watrcooling ?

    i've always used speed fan, although theres probably better apps out there now. this machine was built and overclocked 2 and a half years ago and runs stable so havent really had to monitor the temps that much
