Recenty i did look at Crosair H50, H70, new H80 and Antec 620 water cooling system. I am think about switch from my air cooling heatsink from Intel to water cooling. My concorn is how it will be last longer and am worry about leak from tube or from little pump. I would like hear what your recommand on and any idea. You know, If i make a decide on buy water cooling or stick with my Intel Heatsink (currenty on the MB)
Merry Christmas. I will check this post later.
Today My PC was very stone cold this AM and I did remove my Intel Heatsink ans keep factory back plate on the back of MB (came with Intel heatsink) and installed my new Antec Kuhler H20 620 water cooling system and tight it. The plate that hold the littlew pump is right fit to the orginal Intel back plate. No problems with them and new 12 GB DDR3 at 1.60 GHz did start up with no problem. All went so smmoth and frist time boot up on Windows 7. Also I did went in BIOS and got the XMP enabled and all is good.
The enclose solutions are almost bullet proof. I wouldn't worry about leek or failure. I would say by the time it failed, you would have already gotten something newer/better to replace it.

Thanks for relay back to me. I will check on the water cooling system. Otherwise, I am not sure about that but i will consider about that or better off with my Intel heatsink that came with my Intel I7 990X (It do fine at 4.40 GHz (OC) few times with stock heatsink. It hold on at 70 to 75C Stay below 80C all time. I can see no problem with either of them.
Merry Christmas to you too.
I have four factory sealed Water Coolers and they are all quiet running and they cool the CPU well.
They are made well and will not leak as long as you don't abuse them.
For your Intel Extreme CPU, I would consider an H80 or H100 from Corsair.
But if you're happy with it already, why change it?.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Thanks for relay back to me, Neil Crosiar H80 is right size like other H50, H70,. But H100 is too big for me. I will look at that and the price (cost) from Newegg.com or Amazon.com.
Forget to tell you... Well I did looked at Crosair H70 I like that one. On Amazon.com I did find one for about $80.00 It seem like good deal.
Here are a few to compare at Newegg.
All of their features are listed side by side.
Neil, Thanks for the link to look at water cool system. I did notice that Antec 620 have 2 plug in on the pump and other Crosair H60, H70 H80 have one plug in on the pump. Maybe i will consider about H60 that is good price on H60. I'll ley you know about my decidision on water cooling or stay with my stock heatsink. Thanks again.
You know, the hot day in Summer.time, The water meet the tube and make a moist and dip on hardware. Is it possible to damaged the hardware. Did anyone have that problems in the summertime like that? That make me think more about to stick with my own Intel heatsink. But Maybe in future i will consider about get one with my next build. Anyway, thanks for talking about water system cooling system . Have a good day!
Never had that problem and it gets mighty hot during the summer where I am at.
Mike Coyne:The water meet the tube and make a moist and dip on hardware. Is it possible to damaged the hardware. Did anyone have that problems in the summertime like that?
I live in an area that is hot and very humid during the summer. I have never had water drop condensation on my cooler's pipes/tubes, and never on the radiators either.
It's not a problem for me at all, and I have three of them working right now, and a forth one will be running in a week or two. My water coolers do a great job of removing heat from the CPU and transferring it out the back of the case.
In the end it's your choice, but I can say that they're safe to use if you decide on one later on.
Thanks Neil for relay back to me. That is good thing that you said it is safe with water cooling system.. maybe i will consider about it or stay with my own heatsink. Who know? Anyway, Thanks for offer the idea and tell me bit about your own water cooling system.
Hey, I am consider for awhile and i willing go switch to water cooling system. I have a look at Intel own water cooling system I like that. it cost about $92.00 and other one Antec 620 cost $58.00. this is best deal and i will go with Antec 620. and am upgrade my PC bump up to 12 GB of RAM. soon.
That's good news; I hope the Antec 620 performs well for your needs.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
I did ordered Antec 620 and Kingston Hyper X 12 GB DDR3 RAM (4 GB x 3) both of them is on its way to me. I am looking forward to get it and best part is free shipping from Newegg.com.
Excellent choices made with selecting the Antec 620 and Hyper X sticks..been using an Antec 620 for almost a full yea mounted in a mini-atx with radiator mounted above the cpu horizontally without a hitch. It keeps an older i7 870 very cool n quiet..Lots of head room with the Kingston stick too, and a very solid choice for standard sized sticks that will work with a variety of platforms too.
"Don't Panic ! 'cause HH got's your back!"
Hey rrplay, Thanks. I hope it will be work better to keep my i7 cooler than air cooling. It will be my frist time to have water cooling system in my PC. I had used to air cooling in my former PC many years. Now i'm glad to made a switched to water cooling system. It did took me think about for few months and got hellp with few questions from HH Members on forms.
Hey, I have a two question, Currenty the backpate on the back of MB, Do I need remove it or stick with same one to tight the water cool system and other one is which way i can set up the fan (suck air to raditor or set fan blow way out to raditor and pust hot air exhaust out of case?
Many of us use two fans, one on either side of the radiator. One draws air through the radiator and blows it towards the outside of the case. And the one on the other side draws air from within the case and forces it through the radiator towards the other fan. This is called a push/pull configuration and it works well for me.(see picture below)
You can use the backplate that comes with the Water Cooler or keep the factory plate on the PC too. Both work fine.
realneil: Many of us use two fans, one on either side of the radiator. One draws air through the radiator and blows it towards the outside of the case. ..
In some scenarios like this one 180mm top fan pulls cool air in >>radiator sandwich pull and moving hot air out , the side,,the Antec 620 great choice due to clearance issues of mainboard and chassis limitations..been this way about a year and dif GSkill ram sticks 8GB CL8 currently installed than in this particular pic from last year..no leaks or condensation an a variety of wheather conditions in these parts.
and some Kingston HyperX 1600 CL9 sticks are also in the that particular photo
Hey Neil. Thanks for your replay back to me. Good to know to keep my back plate that came with Intel Heatsink. So i can use it for tight the water cooling on my I7 CPU. Now I'm looking forward to have itin my PC. Thanks again.
