Aquagate for only €72

Recommended Posts

Yes, the 2 bay version, not the R80/R120.

Is it "worth" the buy? Does it increase my temps, is it loud or dead silence? Anyone experience with this one?

Temps now @room temp of ~22c

idle: 28-30

load: 33-36

(OC'd from 2 tot 2.2GHz)

You might wanna search around on the forum, knud. There should be lots of threads regarding this product and issues people have had with it, etc. It's been out awhile, so there should be tons of people with experience/knowledge of it.

I got one but haven't got around testing it. Waiting for a VGA waterblock. A friend of mine also bought one and he is keeping an overclocked Athlon 64 3700+ @ 2.9GHz cooled. So it performs quite well for such a compact solution !

I have one, I found that it cools well my temps never get over 37C on my cpu. But I have modded mine a bit, I took the first fan out (loud as :)) and replaced it with a Cooler Master Blue led fan(looks way better). I also put a 60mm fan on the back mountings a common add on. So with the led fan and 60mm Vantec Stealth it never gets above a whirrrrr sound very quiet compared to my chipset fan. All and All I like it looks great, and is made out of solid metal.

Also got one yesterday :D Love the pricedrop from +/- €200,- to €66 8)

Waar ga je hem kopen? .. Ik raad je aan hem bij Alternate te bestellen :D Krijg je namelijk het Trident waterblok bij (+/- €15,-) EN hij is daar €66,- :D Lol, goedkoper dan de Mini :shock:)

It seems that the Aquagate is cheaper than the R80/R120 which is pretty nice.

@Wouter: The waterblock is included right? (because you posted a link to it?)

Is it a bit silence?
