Water Cooling a Desktop Computer

Overclocking a computer will generate more heat especially if you increase the voltage of various components. This means you need to improve the cooling of the Central processing Unit (CPU), and Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) etc. You could upgrade your cooling with better fans and more of them but this will also make your computer very noisy. Another solution is to use Water Cooling which is much more efficient at dissipating heat from the computer components and should be quieter.

Water Cooling usually consists of a pump, reservoir, heat transfer block, piping, a radiator, and a fan. The pump circulates the coolant (water) through a network of pipes into a block which is fixed on top of the CPU and/or Graphics Processor etc. The heat from the processor is absorbed by the coolant and it is pumped to the radiator. The radiator is cooled by a fan and the coolant is then circulated again. There is also a reservoir which allows you to top up the coolant.



The blocks are fitted on top of a Central processing Unit (CPU), Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), or Northbridge Chipset (on older motherboards) and replace the heatsink. The pump pushes the coolant through the radiator which contains narrow channels which are cooled by a fan.

Many water-cooling systems today are self-contained so that all the components are installed in the case however you will need plenty of room inside the computer case to install it. Another solution is to run the pipes out of the back of the case so that most of the water-cooling components are outside the computer case.

Using water cooling you can not only cool processors but also System Memory and Hard Drives.

You can either buy a water cooling kit or buy the individual parts. There are many blocks available to fit different CPUs, GPUs, and Motherboards.
