Solved Liquid cooling question Tags: New Build Water Cooling Liquid Systems Last response: November 17, 2010 11:05 PM in Systems Share jakebaker13 November 7, 2010 4:34:12 AM This is about as stupid of a question as I can possibly think to ask, but does a liquid cooled system still need any fans? More about : liquid cooling question jimishtar November 7, 2010 3:58:18 PM usually yes, depending of the type and size of the radiator. I believe the zalman reserator (a type of tower-cylinder-radiator) can work without fans. m 0 l jakebaker13 November 7, 2010 4:09:20 PM Thank you. I thought they did.

But then your heat is spread across your radiator and still needs to go somewhere and ussually these radiators are cooled by fans just like heatsinks are cooled by fans. But there is always some airflow(Due to something called brownian motion) which means if you have an extremely good cooling system you can do without fans.
