GPU Water Cooling

Both graphics cards in my computer are now also water cooled. I purchased two GPU cooling blocks and fitted them on each of my graphics cards (in place of the stock Nvidia fans) and daisy chained them with my existing CPU cooling block. So now water goes out of the radiator into the case (just under the PSU), through the CPU cooling block into the first GPU cooling block, then into the second GPU cooling block back out of the case and up to the radiator.

Now there are only two fans running in the computer, the one built into my PSU (maybe that will be the next change!) and the quiet one built into the water cooling radiator. I have the fun in the radiator set to its slowest speed and have a CPU temperature of 27°C, GPU temperatures of about 46°C and ambient case temperature of 44°C.

  • 1) What happens if any of the water pipes split? isn't it a bit dangerous to have water gushing around the insides of Compy?

    2) Do you get money if we click on the Amazon / Google adverts? i'll start clicking when I visit if that's the case Making them UK relevant may increase your ££ too...

  • They're high quality pipes... let's not think about that!

    The Amazon ads only pay if you actually follow up and buy something. I took the Google ones off to meet contractual obligations (I'm also going to a bit of this Google Quality Rating stuff).

  • What water cooling setup is that that you're using?
    Looking to cool my cpu and gpu but cant seem to find one that does both effectively enough. Thanks for the reply.
