So, I'm gonna get one of em fancy water cooling kits (this one to be exact). Is that all? Do I need to get anything extra? Do I need to replace the water after a while? Do I need to wash out the parts before I fill it up? To make it easy to install, I orderd a nice fancy asus am3+ MOBO so I will have a nice, clean and fresh board to replace my broken GD55.
Anti-Microbial solution, there are two options that most people go for.
- A Biocide, its a chemical that you add to the water that kills bacteria/algae, stopping them from growing in the loop. You actually receive some free (the Deadwater) since your buying from FrozenCPU.
- A Kill-Coil, a small strip of silver that also kills Bacteria and Algae. This is what I use since its just dropping it in the res and forgetting about it, dont have to re-apply like a Biocide. http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11441/ex-tub-705/Iand...
In case you may have missed something, the sticky would be a checklist for them
