7 Hot New Water Cooling Systems Tested

Titan TWC-A04: Installation - Fast

Installing the cooling system needs somewhat more time with Pentium 4 platforms, because in order to fasten the water block, the motherboard must be removed first. With AthlonXP and Athlon64, however, the system can be installed without removing the boards. After removing the retention module a special backplate is affixed to the motherboard from the back, the water block is mounted on the CPU from above and is arrested by a metal plate. Four small knurling screws ensure the correct positioning of the cooler.
