View Full Version : Just testing out my MCW462-UHT...

Have a look at the second system in the above link... I think I'm in love. :D (that's full load temps btw)

Just using a Procore, Hydor L30, and the MCW462-UHT and I'm very impressed. I think the second Procore I have coming will really help with cooling so I should be even colder mid next week. :D

:banana: :banana: :banana:

Then on top of that I have one of those 1/12hp cooling contraptions coming from Surplus Center (http://www.surpluscenter.com/item.asp?UID=2003052608075866&catname=electric&item=1-1302) for my chipset(and maybe, hopefully, video card).

And to think I was hooked on air cooling. :rolleyes: ;)

I wish they could make them look as nice as the 5000-* series. from the pictures, atleast, they dont look as shiny and nice as my 5000-A does...

Unfortunately the 5000-A doesn't even come with a TEC option for AMD due to the really weak socket mouting system. Not to mention that the 5000-A socket mount pretty much kills the ability to get good die pressure.

But, hey, it is shinier:)

Yeah i loved mine when i first got it. long time ago. Been watercooling everying since '98. To condensation hastles or making your own gaskets, just bolt the thing on and go!!!

I've got probably 8 waterblocks here looking in my junk drawer, hehe 3 slot one's.

lol ya thats what so good about the mcw462 is the condensation proofed block! all u need is a lil dielectric grease and your ready togo!

Is it really condensation proofed? Why dont they make all waterblocks that way?!

Cause none of them have the skill that swiftech does, takes more than just a milling machine. Plus it would cost all the others too much $$$, no way they could compete with swiftech. So they dont try.

Added another Procore and it's dropped the temps a couple more degrees Celsius so I'm even happier. :D

A 2500 Barton running at 2.4GHz, 1.66v and my temp tops out at 12C fully loaded...
