Recently, I noticed that my computers been kinda hot lately. Running HL2 Demo and Doom 3. The temps rise like crazy. I have 3 fans jammed in here, but it already sounds like a 747
Now, I have been looking into over clocking, researching it as much as I can. Sometime in the future I wanna try my go at overclocking my Video Card and CPU. With the new games coming out I can't always play them as I like to - (High res and tons of AA and AF!)
So ... to the point. Soon i'm getting a job and I wanna buy some cooling for my computer. I was looking into water cooling, but I'm still not sure about it. Fans are just too noisy and other options I have seen just seem way too expensive (upwards of $500.00-$1000.00 or higher!)
I want something easy to set up (to the point where it's not gonna take me a week), something easy to manage - water cooling is about as hard as I want it), something that I can actually afford - I'm gonna say $200.00 is my limit (Canadian finds people!) And something that is effective. Hopefully I'm looking for something that can decrease my temperatures by about 20C
I really don't know if this is all possible, but I am asking you's first
Thanks for your help if you can give any. Oh and if you have any other questions i'll be sure to answer fast
I'm currently using a Zalman 7000B AlCu myself (read a review that says it beats the pure copper CU version). However, I do think that water wud be nice. silent is also good. so why not get both by getting a Zalman Reserator. The thing is silent, pretty cool looking to have beside your comp, and its water cooling.
Sweet! Thanks you guys. I was looking into the Reserator 1 from Zalman. I hope it can fit under my desk, i'll have to look at the dimensions later.
I'm so glad there's actually a store in Edmonton Reich! For some reason my family dislikes credit cards and online shopping So 99% of the time i'm stuck ordering through a company or not getting my way! :heh:
Thanks again guys. Oh and if you have any other tipc please please give them Anything will help.
