reliability
« on: September 27, 2007, 02:20:06 PM »

I was just curious if anyone has comments on the reliability of water cooled systems. (basically I'm thinking of recommending them to my boss, she wants something quiet and fast)

Do they start to leak if not properly maintained by someone who isn't clueless? Does moving them around risk damaging tubing / connections? What is the longest you have run one without any problems?

Buy a presealed system.  They are guaranteed for years.  Might not be the best in cooling, but it'd beat stock and it'd be quiet.

That is what I was thinking of doing, I just wasn't sure about if anyone had experiences (or perhaps could recommend any)

many tests show that the all-in-one water cooling kits that come pre-piped and all that, dont perform as well as some air coolers

I would seriously consider higher end air cooling first.

The trouble is, being your boss, I'm guessing its company hardware? In which case, voiding warranties by replacing stock coolers isn't suggestable.
