Hubby recently built himself a new PC with help from a friend of his. It is a pretty awesome piece of gaming kit with 3 top of the range graphics cards. All good so far, except it had a problem with overheating.
Much head scratching and searching of Google ensued until a solution was found. It was concluded that a bigger case was needed (bigger case? This thing is like a cupboard!!) and a water cooling system was to be installed.
Hmm…interesting times seeing as Hubby and Friend had never installed a water cooling system before…..
This was the finished result which looks pretty cool:
The result of several Saturdays spent working on it, some ad-hoc modifications when things went wrong, new connectors being ordered when there weren’t enough to finish the job, much swearing, searching of Google, tea drinking, chocolate eating, taking up my kitchen table, working into the early hours when I’d gone to bed long ago….
But I’m sure you’ll agree that the final result is worth it!! It does look quite sexy.
My machine next but I think I will keep it simple and give the watercooling a miss…..
