Yes the D14 can handle temperatures...but when you want to overclock more you need more?

I dont think I actually agree with 1 thing you said.

If you do watercooling properly then you wont get leaks. And if you're nooby enough to be making mistakes that will cause leaks, then you deserve all you get for not reading up enough in the first place.

I think you've actually gone and beaten Jeremy for getting the most hate after 1 post.

It's neither of those, it's the facts. Yeah, your D14 keeps your CPU at 62 degrees, but under what overclock? Watercooling can do that under large overclocks with ease, it's in a different league to a D14 and similar air coolers.

I also find it a bit hypocritical when you say we all have "Temperature Fixation Syndrome" then you go on to say "My D14 handles my CPU at 62 degrees". Not being rude or anything like that, just putting the facts out there.

Haha! I don't think anyone can beat him on that front

Isn't it ironic the hottest component (GPU) is frequently not the first component to be water-cooled, if ever?

Many people spend lots of cash on video cards, more than any other component, so it's kind of ironic how many fixate on the CPU but continue to air-cool the hottest, most expensive component in the box!

I wouldn't say the gpu is the hottest part, my Powercolor pcs+ 5850 maxes out at about 53c and is only at 30% fan speed

I have garnered one piece of advice from this apparently ill-advised thread: Noob water-coolers should practice their first build on some crap hardware before trying to install a shower in an expensive rig.

It's the old chicken/egg situation: Everybody is a noob the first time, right?

Not ironic in the slightest. For most, it depends on their budget. If they can do it, they will, if not they will just watercool the CPU and add the GPU in the loop whenever they can afford to

Why exactly should you go and fit water cooling in another system before your main rig? If you take your time and double check things, then leak test without any power going to your components except the pump then even if you get a small leak it shouldn't damage the stuff in your rig.

Well that is what I have been told by many people doing how to videos on youtube.

Edit: Oh look what I found:

Watch from 4 minutes.

It's pretty well accepted that your CPU is going to be the hottest part of a watercooled system. I fear you may need to check your definition of irony, sir.

Im not a massive fan of watercooling tbh, the main reason for that being that I think it's just to expensive, however I think its a bit rude tbh to come onto an enthusiast site and blast watercooling.

P.s If if I had the monies then I would lover a nice loop

Sure, your first post was ill-informed and felt a little aggressive over "teh interwebz" is all. We're here to help people get it right so don't feel like we're anti-noob or anything (it's exactly why we're here to help) we were just put a little on the defensive.

My first water cooling loop was put straight onto my PC - no using old equipment and I didn't have a single issue. Watercooling certainly has its advantages even for a higher inital outlay of mullah but the risk really isn't that great if you just spend a few moments to get some advice and build it carefully. The performance and silence is undoubtedly better if you want to go that way.
