    Phoronix: Switching From Water To Air Cooling With Some Linux Benchmarking Systems

    Here are some thermal test results when switching from some Intel and AMD water coolers over to $20 Arctic Cooling heatsinks in the test lab...

    The links to the benchmarks aren't working, for some reason, I get the "NO RESULT FILE FOUND" in OpenBenchmarking.org. Also some pictures aren't showing, there's a black box with a white X in their place

        michael, you could try and buy a a few car radiators, an industrial water pump and create a large cooling system with custom waterblock for closed loop liquid cooling. These aftermarket complete solution are a true joke.

          Why? Too expensive first of all, with $20 heatsinks are doing fine.

            Michael, on your AMD FX system, memory modules installed in single-channel configuration (DIMM_A1, DIMM_A2).

            See: http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/..._Formula-Z.pdf
            Section 1.2.4. System Memory.

            For two modules it is recommended to install them into 2nd and 4th slots (DIMM_A2, DIMM_B2).

              Every All in one watercooling are crap, (even 240mm water allinone )
              they produce more noise, and they can't beat best aircooling like Noctua DH15 or Be quiet Dark Rock 3.

                I vote for immersion cooling, and converting the basement in to a giant pool !
                :-D

                  that is true, all top noise/power coolers are air towers.
                  however, there is a niche for useful water cooling: connect your computers via pipe to heatsink with fan(s) located outside of manned room, then your manned room will be less noisy than with air coolers. it will be costly though

                    Yeah, that's the real answer isn't it... or maybe run the loop over to the nearest sink, and have a trickle of cold water constantly running over a heat exchanger to keep the water in the loop cool. If it works for moonshine stills it should work for benchmark farms.
