Hi, I own a TT bigwater kit (cl-w0005). I am thinking about upgrading the kit by purchasing a NB waterblock. The problem, however, is that the kit I use only have 6.4mm (1/4") water hoses and a single 120mm radiator. I have talked to people who has added a GPU waterblock to ther bigwater kit with no problems, but I haven't been able to talk to anyone with a chipset Waterblock.
So, what produces more heat? A overclocked NB or a GPU in default clocks.
I guess this depends on how much i overclock, but can anyone just give me a rough answer?
Here's my system:
Mobo: Abit ai7 (i865pe)
Graphics card: Radeon 9.8k pro
CPU: P4 Prescott 3.0Ghz
adding a chipset block WILL reduce your performance. you have to account for the fact that you are using more tubing and an extra block. this causes more restriction and decreases the overall system flow. this then will reduce the cooling performance for the cpu and gpu
to tell you the truth, chipsets are more than adaquetly cooled by aircoolers, adding a chipset block won't even raise your OC
