Water Cooling, Is It Any Good?

If you are asking if it is cost effective, the answer is no! Does it cool better than air? In most cases, but not all. (some air coolers are more effective than some entry level water coolers....i.e. Thermalright IFX-14, to name 1) It is more cost effective to buy a decent air cooler and use the money saved to upgrade the processor. But since you already have a PC and you are just wondering if it works well, the answer is yes. If you are going to buy it, I really hope you plan on pushing that Q6600 to very limit until it screams for you to stop. Otherwise it would be such a waste. Yes....it will operate quietly. Oh and if you buy it, make sure you use distilled water so it does not crystallize and puncture the tubes. That would be bad.

1. 2 Video cards or Water Cooling system?

Which video cards? You should get the best single card that you can. If you are thinking about using GTX 260's, then get a single GTX 285 or wait until the 300 series comes out. Using SLI for cards that are not top of the line as soon as you build your system destroys and potential for futureproofing. Just out of curiosity, what cooler are you going to use if you are not going to watercool?

2. adding water cooling to computer what do i need distilled water for?

you could no longer upload anymore ram sticks, in case you in no way got rid of any. you've got the replace the previous ones. which will make it quicker. None of those different issues will help in spite of the incontrovertible fact that.

3. What types of fluids are there for water cooling a computer?

Water is most common. Liquid nitrogen and helium is used in extreme experimental cases. BTW, your answer was in the question. Who's buried in Grant's tomb? We use oil for our pad mounted rectifiers. We powered one up one day forgetting that it was drained. 5 minutes and $25,000 later, we are calling the fire department.

4. how can i build my own computer?

Start with an air cooled system then try water cooling, as system building goes its very easy! I started building my own computers when I was 14. websites like overclockers.co.uk have great prices and forums for asking questions. Its very easy.... the manufactures now have made it much much easier to see how it fits together, where before it was not so user friendly. just do not ever take the PSU apart! thats the power supply unit that the plug goes in to this can kill.

5. Does a water cooling system sound reasonable for a 5850 and a phenom 2 x4?

Are you an overclocking, benchmark chasing junkie? That's about the only type of PC user than needs watercooling of the sophistication you are describing. I would go with air cooling and use the cash savings to buy the next level up video card and processor as a better use of my money.

6. How to make own CPU water cooling?

Unless you are going for a 'chiller' type setup, where the water will go through a refrigerated heat exchanger, the temperature differential between the water and the air can not get high enough to cause condensation on the hoses (the water would need to be below room temperature). A standard water cooling setup wo not get below [room temperature 10 degrees or so] and thats with a REAL efficient radiator. If you go the chiller route, observe the hoses for a few hours. If they do develop consensation, you can wrap the hoses in cotton medical gauze, then cover that with foam tubing insulation. The insulation will keep the differential to a minimum, and the gauze will absorb any condensation that does form. Besides, condensation is distilled water. Distilled water contains no impurities, therefore is not conductive. The part I would be concerned with is making sure your hose joints are leakproof. You should seal them to the water blocks with silicone AND hose clamps (if your water blocks have compression fittings instead of clamps, make sure they are torqued to the correct specs) PS: Buy one from a store! :-D j/k.. I've built several water systems and never had a problem yet!

The Strange Case of Dr. Alderotti and the Arabic Liquor in Europe
(Note: I am grateful to Dr. Jelena Mrgić and Dr. Gordan Ravančić who responded thoughtfully to the emails of a stranger enquiring about alcohol in the Balkans. All views or errors remain mine.)Many Croatians enjoy sipping a distilled alcoholic beverage called "rakija", a name they no doubt associate with merriment and conviviality. The name and the drink are also connected to the lengthy and serpentine history of alcohol distillation. Less than 200 miles away from the Croatian coast, on the other side of the Adriatic Sea, lived a key figure from the alcoholic annals: Dr. Alderotti. This professor at the University of Bologna wrote about alcohol more than 700 years ago, and was the first to mention water cooling in his distillation procedure[1]. The invention of a process that would distill alcohol efficiently eluded human beings for centuries, and the development of water cooling in the 13th century was a major breakthrough. But despite the geographic proximity to Northern Italy, there are no traces of distilled alcohol in Croatia or the rest of the Balkans until 300 years later. We have to wait for an official Ottoman document from 1586. This official tax register mentions the custom duty charged on distilled alcohol in Vidin, a town located in present-day Bulgaria[2]. This 300 year hiatus is puzzling. You would have expected Dr. Alderotti's revolutionary technology to spread at a faster rate across the neighboring regions of Northern Italy. There was also extensive trade across the Adriatic Sea.One explanation could be the dearth of medieval sources from the Balkans[3]. Under this narrative, the region was enjoying liquors in medieval times, but we simply lost all sources attesting such consumption. There may however be a more plausible explanation. The name "Rakija" derives from an Arabic word meaning "distilled"[4]. It is a close cousin to Turkey's Raki and Lebanon's Araq, two other distilled alcoholic beverages. The Balkans may have imported their liquor-making technology from the East rather than the West.Dr. Alderotti and his peers were developing distilled alcohol purely for medicinal purposes. They produced small quantities of the liquid with sophisticated apparatus and high quality glassware. They probably achieved very high levels of alcohol content. But around the same time, far away east in Central Asia, distillers had developed a technology to produce spirits for conviviality rather than medicinal purposes. They were producing distilled alcohol for consumption during banquets, feasts and parties[5].This eastern technology probably required less sophisticated equipment and produced lower alcohol content than Dr. Alderotti's equipment. But it spread swiftly across geographies, and reached the Balkans around the 16th century. And Croatians understood that sipping Rakija for conviviality purposes is a great medicine too, with all due respect to Dr. Alderotti.[1] Dr. Edmund O. von Lippmann transcribed Dr. Alderotti's Latin writings relating to the distillation of alcohol ("aqua vite"). I was able to find these in "Sudhoffs Archiv für Geschichte der Medizin und der Naturwissenschaften (1913-1914)". The key passage is on page 386. [2] I was unable to find a digital version of the original Ottoman document. I have found a translation written in Serbo-Croat: Dušanka Bojanić, Turski zakoni i zakonski propisi iz XV i XVI veka za Smederevsku, Kruševačku i Vidinsku Oblast (1974). The relevant passage is on page 67 of this document. The author provides the following references for the original document: "Opširni defter Vidinskog Sandžaka iz 1586, godine, fol. 6r-6v Table XI-XII". Vidin is located approximately 600 miles away from Bologna (Italy) according to Google Maps.[3] In her paper, "Wine or Raki — the Interplay of Climate and Society in Early Modern Ottoman Bosnia", Dr. Jelena Mrgić writes about the Central Balkans (Bosnia and Serbia) that "not a single royal or town archive has survived from the Middle Ages".[4] "Rakija" derives from 'Araqi ("عرقي"). The Arabic word could be translated as "sweated", a reference to the similitude between the distillation process and perspiration. [5] A Chinese dietary book dated 1330, the "Yin-Shan cheng-yao", mentions a distilled alcoholic beverage based on wine. See Paul D. Buell, Eugene N. Anderson, A soup for the Qan : Chinese dietary medicine of the Mongol era as seen in Hu Szu-Hui's Yin-shan cheng-yao : introduction, translation, commentary and Chinese text (page 499)How do I keep my dog's water cool on hot days?Ice. That's what I do. And, it works!
