If you have decided to choose a cooling system other than air, there will definitely be higher cost associated with the project. When regular air heat sinks and fans (HSF) start at $15, more effective cooling devices start at around $100. By purchasing premium products that costs much more, you expect to see some impressive performance. Today we will examine a water cooling system from Corsair, and we will see how much of an improvement it provides.
When it comes to overclocking your processor, there are a few variables you need to keep in mind. One of the main concerns is the temperature of the CPU itself. While it may not burn up your PC literally, it will definitely affect your overclock and the overall performance in the most adverse manner. Those of us who want to keep it simple go with air-cooled systems and there are a lot of very good choices if you decide to go this route. Others prefer something a little more advanced such as water cooling or even more effective solutions like peltier elements and other custom-designed coolers. While water cooling works fairly simple, more effective devices require a lot more careful installation and maintenance.
Our water cooler will be a mid-range system from Corsair.
The company is known for its wide selection of excellent computer memory products. This water-cooling solution from Corsair seems to be company’s first stab at making a product for the ever-expanding market catering to the overclocking community. Corsair has an excellent reputation for making some of the best DDR modules such as the XMS PRO series and many others. (You can find a review for their XMS series Pro DDR RAM right here). Although they are known to make great RAM, whether they can make a great water cooling system is yet to be seen.
