AquaGate Questions

Recommended Posts

Echo    0

I have just purchased a CoolerMaster Stacker chassis (what a chassis :D ) and I'm considering getting an AquaGate, but was wondering if it can "tame" a Presc(hot)t 3.0E 478 CPU? My temps on idle currently are 50 C and can hit the 70's when under load (FarCry) I have an ASUS 5950 Ultra GFX card (the one with the big copper gpu cooler) which contributes to a lot of the heat in the case. I will post pics tonight once I get them uploaded to my site.

Thanks,

Echo

The Aquagate will be perfect for your prescott. Especially with a big case like the stacker, all you have to do is get yourself a cross flow fan, load it up with more 120mm and the Aquagate, your entire case will be cool under heavy and idle.

To cool that Prescott you need an industrial sized enviormental control unit with liquid nitro. Heh. Nah just kidding. :D The Aquagate shoulk work just fine.

:) at once stage I was considering liquid nitrogen and a nuclear reactor cooling tower but then my rig wouldn't be to mobile.

How is the AquaGate (if mounted internally) with being moved around? Say once a week taking it for a drive? As this rig is also used as a server for my live visual work.

It should be alright for moving because once it's filled and you put the 'plug' in the LCU then it becomes sealed, however I wouldn't be too comfortable taking it for a drive over bumps etc because of the strain the heavy waterblock will put on your motherboard (although the same applies for a lot of the modern heatsinks too).

By the looks of it no-one locally is into CoolerMaster products :( The local suppliers have it in their price list but no stock, the good news is that they have sourced me on which arrives on Tuesday :) So after that... no more noisy fans :) (apart from the 2 x 120's in the Stacker case) can't wait.

On a side not, yesterday my Prescott was running at 36 C idle, that is until I decided to play FarCry, then it jumped back up to the usual 74-76 C under load!

Well, after installing 1st unit (faulty you name it :D) then replacing the unit today, with a new working unit. Temps under load are currently 48 C, ambient (outdoor) temps today are 38 C humidity in the high 90's. Will test with FarCry tonight :)
