    Some guys here asked for an efficient and a good cooler . Some recommandations should be appreciated by them ( for all type of processors ) .
    And here's my recommandation :
    1) TITAN MTAB Dual Cooler for Athlon XP ,PIII, Duron , Athlon under 1.4Ghz - 14.6$ at this moment .

    So we are waiting for recommandations ( please detail it ) ;)

    I have a spire superock, and my proc does run hotter then i would like.

    The ThermlaTake Volcano 7 seems to be a nice fan/heatsink. I should get one

    right now my cpu. athlon xp 1800+ oc'd to 1.81ghz is running @ 102.2f which is 39c. if at normal speed @ 1533mhz it is 83.3f or 28.4c. there are no case fans. only an extremely quiet power supply fan.

    the black thing in pic 2 is not my case. nor is the radiator on the left. the black thing is a mini fridge that mu water resivour sits in to keep it extra cold. the thing on left is the radiator that i mounted in a shoebox with 2 fans behind it to blow air over it

    Are there any risks with this type of cooling device ( cause i'm little interested ) .
     
  17. Tbird94sc

    Tbird94sc Guest

    yes there are risks like any other method. in a heatsink sense. if it is improperly placed then the chip could overheat. if the fan dies then the chip may overheat. in the sense of water, there are similar risks. if your pump dies, then you risk a chance of ovheating. if the water leaks you can risk damage to components. there are safeguards however. first off you set up the water cooler outside the case and let it run for a few hours to see if thewre are leaks. then you install it in the case. check out these cases. http://www.koolance.com They come with built in water coolers with everything attatched and leak tested. they have the radiators built into the case with fans cooling them off. duel pump system for redundancy. they are a lot of fun to play with and nothing cools better. as for noise. nothing. cant even tell my computer is on if monitor is off
