ATTN All Water Cooling Users
I have a water cooling kit in my computer, and it is the bane of my existence. Mounting the water block was hell, and installing it all was hell. Recently, my computer has been over heating. Why? At first I thougt it was becase of the waterblock not being secured tightly enough on the prcessor. Tightened it, and it worked... but not for long. I finally come to find it is a result of vapor lock in the hoses. Air is in there, forbidding the movement of water. So I messed around with the hoses a little bit, added water, sucked and blew (That sounded REALLY bad) on the hoses to get the air out and move the fluid around. Got it working, filling it with water worked... sort of. There are these little floaty things in my water system. They are little clear things, very mysterious. Like little latex flakes floating around in the water system, obstructing the flow of water. Anyone know what they are or could be? Before I installed the system, I let it run for several hours to flush it out, drained it, refilled it, and then installed it. I dont lke it, my computer runs to 149 degrees and then restarts (Overheating protection) when it is working it is an acceptable temperature. I figure the best thing would be to drain it and refill all the water in it, but that is big difficulty. Anyone know a solution to this problem? Or an easy way to drain my system?
