    Global WIN Silent Stream Review - Installation

    (Page 6 of 8 )

    I opted to install the Silent Stream the "pro" method. All the information you could ever need or want on installing the cooler is in the manual, so the pro method is really easy enough for anyone. One discrepancy with the pro method is that you are forced to remove the warranty label on the radiator. There are a total of three labels, one on the inlet tube, one on the radiator, and one on the water block. Leakage warranty only remains for the parts that still have labels, so if your water block leaks you are okay, but if the radiator leaks you are on your own. The warranty lasts one year from purchase and covers normal use only.

    The first thing I did was install the P4 clip kit: two clips secured by two screws each on the sides of the block.


    Getting the screws in was rather difficult as the pre-drilled holes weren't nearly wide enough. I had to use a larger screw and really force it down each hole to loosen things up a bit. At the same time I cleaned off the thermal pad, as I will be using Arctic Silver thermal paste.


    The next step was taking apart the radiator cover and fan. The fan is secured by four screws and the cover is secured by two. This is where I had to take off one of the warranty labels.


    I was then able to drain out the water block and radiator.


    Then it was time to install the external tubing fixation rack by simply screwing it into an empty PCI slot.


    The next step is to re-fill the system with distilled water. The inner volume of the Silent Stream is 50 C.C. After about 10 minutes of filling, getting the air out, filling, getting the air out, etc., with the pump running, I was finished with filling the Silent Stream back up with water.


    I then switched off the computer, pulled out the installed heat sink and fan, and installed the water block using two clips. The clips hook right into the P4 retention socket.


    The final step was securing the radiator and fan to the back of the case.


    At last, installation of the Silent Stream is finished. On to the tests!
