Talking Water Cooled RAM - Pointless BUT SEXAY!

http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...5&page=1&pp=25

Just looks cool. Works well if you're pumping out 3.5v into the RAM or so lol, but even then most people will get just as good results from good RAM sinks and a fan blowing over it.

However, it looks awesome on that guys board dont ya think?

lol yeah, he did make his look pretty awesome. But it'll just heat up water temps, more tubing = less performance and higher temps on CPU and whatnot but hey it looks good

just looking at his case design with all that tubing and the compressor under it and everything else, he must have sum very very high performance out of it BUT think hes forgot his HDDs get just as hot as his ram dont they?

Whew his works in progress page looks rather intense. He must have an awful lot of time on his hands. I wish I could mess with stuff like that and not have to go to college. LOL.

3.5v through your RAM will make it hot

Not necessarily. He's OC'ing his RAM and pushing a lot of extra voltage through it. The HD is just 'stock'

Nah, I'm not creative, patient, or skilled like them lol. And I think I'm going to sell this bigwater. Probably $70 or $75 shipped cause I just want to get rid of it. It's good for beginners, but I want PERFORMANCE cooling, which the bigwater is not the way to go for extreme performance. The guys at xtremesystems.org are helping me out quite a bit with all the hardware to get.

If you know someone who might be interested in the bigwater let me know. Still in my system, works great and all. Minus one nozzle broke off, but I have it completel sealed with a screw and rubber nipple ghetto but works. It's one of the two nozzles used for refilling it, not one that a hose connects to
