    Evercool WC202, Water Cooling for Anyone - Using the Tubes and Accessories


    (Page 6 of 9 )

    Below, there are a total of 5 tubes included with the kit. There are 2 shorter tubes, 2 regular longer tubes, and 1 longer tube that has a built in water flow indicator. The indicator is a great feature that just shows Evercool knows what they're doing.

    Since the pump runs fairly silent, seeing the little indicator spinning away helps ease tension about whether you've done things right or not. The water in the clear tubes doesn't show any real movement.

    The tubes themselves are made of an extremely flexible, soft rubber. This allows for sharper turns without kinks when necessary. The small black rings next to the metal connectors on the tubes are what keep things nice and tight. The tool shown below is used to hook the tiny loops at the ends of these black "C" rings and slide the away from the connectors so you can cut and shorten the hoses.

    After making your cut and replacing the connector at the new end, just use the tool and slide the "C" ring snug up to the connector to achieve a tight seal again. Also shown in that picture is the included temp sensor wire.

    Let's take a closer look at the two water blocks. First, here's the CPU one, as most people will definitely be using this one. The first picture shows nice clean bottom of the water block and the second shows the various brackets for installing with different CPU's.


    The finish on the face of the CPU block is immaculate. Extremely well polished to a mirror-like finish to provide the best possible contact between it and the CPU. The waterblocks were each packaged in a small ziploc baggy and also had a clear sticker which you may have saw in a previous picture. The wording on the sticker warns the user to remove it before use. I've seen many kits come with CPU block's where the finish is subpar and the company leaves it to the user to get some wet/dry sandpaper in order to achieve what Evercool has done for you here.

    You may also notice the small "step" on the edge of the block.

    As you can see, using the included piece of tape, I first tried to place the sensor on the surface closest to the the contact point, but thought better of it afterwards. The step is close to the contact, and this allowed good placement of the temp sensor later on.

    In the picture below you can see the GPU water block, again exhibiting an excellent finishing job.

    Also in the picture is the mounting hardware. The two different brackets allow the GPU waterblock to be attached to pretty much all modern graphics cards.
