Cooling liquids question

Picasso
Level 7
Hey guys, I'm running:

  • Core i7 920 slightly overclocked @ 2.79Ghz water cooled
  • 12GB (3x4gig) Patriot PC12800 DDR3 Trichannel @ 1600 Mhz
  • Radeon 5870 (XFX if I remember)
  • Seagate Momentus XT 750gig Hybrid
  • Watercooled MOBO:Gigabyte EX58-Extreme
  • Watercooling/tower system: Thermaltake VH600LBWS Link: www.thermaltakeusa.com/Product.aspx?C=1309&ID=1480
  • Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit


I have two questions. I'm currently using http://thermaltakeusa.com/Product.aspx?C=1162&ID=1641 for coolant, was wondering if there is something better out there for coolant, it seems to be the only thing I can find readily available. Also I was wondering your guys thoughts on the cooling system (I believe it is known as the Big Water 500 or something like that, can't remember for sure, I put this rig together a few years ago)

I'm just wonder because my rig runs around 100-120F just dinkin around on the net and around 10-20 degrees warmer when gaming. I know its well within levels, but would like to see it cooler if I could, and was wondering if there is any better coolants out there that last longer and cool better. I tend to burn through one of those coolant bottles about every nine months or so depending on use. I gnerally leave my rig running 24-7 unless I'm out of town. If I overclock any higher than that using gigabyte's auto over clock system, and runs quite a bit warmer and really starts to burn through the coolant. Any ideas, comments and suggestions are more than welcome

Looks like that is in the UK from the pound/euro pricetag. Can that be found in the states?


If you're going lower on the right side of the page, you will be able to change the currency... but you can get that stuff here in US too: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_381_1063&products_i... or http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14159/ex-liq-189/EK_EKoolant_Premium_Liquid_Cooling_Premix_Coolant...


Would you like me to continute to use this thread or start a new one once I got it all together?


It's up to you... and the mods... 🙂 I think, for the world peace, it would be better if you would start a new thread... - it also could help others too (please, let me know if you do, would participate in discussions)

New thread.


And boiled water with a drop or two of baby bottle steriliser (Miltons here in the UK) is all that I have used in five years. Never had a problem and never had any gunk in my system. 🙂
