I would like to know if the liquid cpu coolers were worth the money or not. Currently I have a giant Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler along with 5 other case fans. cpu temp. on average is about 39 degrees celcius but this is at "optimum" cpu voltage and I'd like to pump it up to the "extreme" voltage setting. I live in Nicaragua and it gets fairly hot down here and no air-conditioning. So, is it worth the money?

How about hooking it up to your toilet cistern ?

Handthumb,

The Double Fan Air CPU Cooler you have is Fine for O/Cing.

The machine will run cooler with the Case Side Panel removed.

Just ensure you have fans blowing over HDDs. (Intake Fans)

If you had SSDs, would not even need those front intake fans.

Toilet hook up? That is clever and strange at the same time. Raphoenix, thanks for the info. There are 2 fans for the front and I do have SSD's. I will remove them and the side panel to see how much cooler it runs. Thank you!

Toilet hook up, I saw it somewhere, maybe here. Great idea, you get a constant turn around of cold water. (also good for cleaning out small carp) and if you have a loft tank, big carp.
