My new water cooling unit
My new water cooling unit that doesnt use water is uses liquid silicone suppied bt WilWood

This is the first water cooling computer I have build in a few year and I would like to know what you think.

the round tube is the resevior and the system holds a total of 1.5 liters
or about 38 oz in.

These are the tematures of the video cards and room tempature is 22C

The radiators are CoolTherm duel core core 240mm (rear) The top is a
Coolgate triple 240mm core and the from is a XSPC triple core 360mm
CPU cn reach 30C if played for a few hours but has never been warmer.
It also has two water pumps and uses liquid silicone supplied by WilWood
thewy make brake prinarily for grag cars and for very high performance
street cars. The surprising thing is the liquid silicone works also most
as good as distilled water without the worry of leek because it does not
degade or transite electricity so leeks are a none issue and cleans just
as good as water if you happen to have a leak.I think it is the perfect coolant.

Interesting... (personally, I'd have left the copper tube bare)

I bet the flash doesn't do the paint justice (matt vs. shiney)

What's the silicone like to work with??

I knew I hadn't imagined it... now it's deleted = people will never know what I hadn't imagined...

These guys are being pretty harsh, lol

Maybe this is your first foray into something like custom PC building. But generally,

- If you're going to paint some part of a case, you should do the entire thing

- If duct or electrical tape is required, it probably isn't supposed to be done

- Don't put decals for a aftermarket brake pad company for tuning cars on a computer unless you're a pro builder going for a theme. In fact, you should never put decals on computer component ever. If it wasn't for the fact that you void the warranties, most of us would remove the stickers that come from the factory on components

Obviously there are no "rules" for building PC's. It's hobby, do whatever makes you happy. But, there are things you can follow to maintain an nice, presentable and aesthetically pleasing build.

Well...it's not going to win any awards, but it may be something he is very proud of. Especially if he felt confident enough to show it off on these forums. Felt like he deserves some creative criticism.

There's a few thing's i would have done different but he/she does have very decent temp's,much better than i imagined at first glance.

I guess this is where the saying,Pretty Is As Pretty Does fit's in.

Canadians aren't as nice as people think. Get an Ontarian and a Quebecer in a room and ask them to discuss language laws and bilingualism and one of them won't make it out.

[/size][size=2]Yea. I would be careful using anything other then water though. Most pumps are not designed to push anything with a higher density then glycol. [/size]
