GeForce GTX 285 On Water Cooling: Zotac's Infinity Edition : Why Water?

Why Water?

Liquid cooling takes advantage of the key features that a larger radiator offers compared to local sinks, with the added benefit that the radiator can often be mounted in a cooler air stream.
That explains why a large radiator sits at the front of most automobiles, but in the case of overclocking, complexity and inconvenience have limited the number of liquid-cooling applications in PCs. Most liquid cooling systems focus on the CPU, since adding other components to the loop makes servicing a nightmare. In particular, removing a liquid cooling system from graphics cards requires extreme caution and plenty of extra time to drain the system, which must then be refilled and re-purged (to remove air from the water lines) before it can be used again. This could easily turn five minutes of diagnostic work into a one-hour ordeal--and that's if you know what you're doing.



Who wants to drain/re-fill this bad-boy?

my god......., now that looks like a complex loop.....


z3r010 (john) is looking to go with WC ..... but if im brutally honest these WC setups are really for staunch OCers..... having the rad & reservoir bolted to the case will do NOTHING to lower sound levels.... it will probably increase it with 3x 120mm fans strapped to it...

john...... if you wanna go with this for ''noise reduction'', you'll need to elongate the tubing & have the rad in another room, or hanging out the window..

& even then that 1200w PSU will take over the noise lost by HSFs on the cards, CPU & chassis fans...IMO

Hi Mitch,

Being as water is such a better sound conductor as Air I suppose the noise levels are always an issue.
