Water Cooling Systems Buying Guide

In this era of technological innovation where the digital world is the core of our professional lives, computers and PCs have taken on a significant role in our lives, like never before. New models with new technologies keep taking the market by storm offering the best and latest to us for use. And we already know that buying a computer calls for significant investments and thus taking care of their functions and maintaining them is on us. This piece focusses on one of the core components of a computer without which it might stop running altogether-The 'Water Cooling System'.

What is a Water Cooling System

Many times, if you listen carefully while operating a computer, you hear a whirring sound. This whirring sound is that of a fan that works to keep the temperature of the computer down so that it can run faster. But with multitasking and having to perform heavy programming tasks, often a fan is not sufficient. That is where the liquid cooling system or the Water Cooling System comes into play. Water Cooling System keeps the temperature of the processors within an optimal range along with graphics cards etc. so that the computer can function more efficiently. 

Types

Now before we understand why we should choose a Water Cooling System over fans, let's take a quick look at the types of Water Cooling System available for us.

External Water-Cooling Systems

Such systems keep the pump, radiator and the water source outside the unit where the water continuously circulates and is carried inside the unit through tubes.

Internal Water Cooling Systems

Such water-based cooling systems are built and are fitted inside the unit rather than outside for enhanced performance. This also ensures that there is no external clutter for you to take care of.

Immersed Cooling Systems

This allows certain components inside a CPU to be completely submerged in the liquid. But one of the biggest factors influencing this is the fact that the coolant shouldn't be conducive electrically. But this system is not so common because of its very high cost.

Benefits of Water Cooling System

Better Efficiency

Water is known for its thermal conductivity. This means water can simultaneously reduce heat from many components inside your CPU efficiently and at a much faster pace than a box-fan. Lower temperature prevents overheating allowing your processors to work fast that yields quick results. Of course, keeping a liquid, like water next to the electronically generated delicate processors might give rise to skepticism. But, water can act as a central cooling system for all the parts owing to its nature of being a good conductor.

Enhances Overclocking

Overclocking is the process of pushing your processors to work at a high speed by using the settings on the motherboard to yield a quick and efficient result for your actions. But it comes at a cost of overheating the processors as they work more to deliver within short processing time. This reduces the shelf-life of the processors. With water taking care of the overheating, this process of degradation can be delayed to quite a significant extent.

Reduced Noise

Fewer fans mean less noise. Using an efficient Water Cooling System will eliminate your need to have more than one fan as water can reduce heat about 30 times faster than air. Therefore, you can have just one fan with the Water Cooling System to cool down your PC. This ensures more productivity from you as your focus will no longer falter because of the fan noise.

Elongated Cooling

When you are using a Water Cooling System, the heat generated in the processor gets dissipated by the fan into the water which flows onto the radiator. Now, this heated water gets continuously replaced with cold water allowing the processors to cool down progressively.

Space

Water Cooling Systems are set up inside your CPU using tubes which ends up taking quite less space than a fan or fans which is required in more numbers if you are using a PC for custom applications like gaming.

Easily Cools off Higher GPUs

Graphic processing unit uses a lot of electricity to perform efficiently. Sometimes, such actions can make the Graphic processing units reach critical temperatures leading to its malfunction. At such a Water Cooling System will enable quick release of heat from the GPU’s allowing them to use more electricity without overheating.

An Advantage in a Warm Environment

The advantage of using a Water Cooling System can be easily seen in warmer climates, where the environment is a big factor in heating the internal components. Since a water-cooling system continuously circulates the cool water to all the parts, the warm environment does very little to affect the system keeping its performance constant.

Conclusion

Computers and PCs can work for longer periods without faltering. But that doesn't mean that it's going to be the same forever.  Knowing your system and taking care of it can make a huge difference in your PCs performance over time. Therefore, switching to efficient Water Cooling Systems is a good idea as far as machines are concerned. The inclination towards Water Cooling System is a huge leap from our traditional Fan-based cooling system. Now that you know how it works, you should go ahead and give it a try. This way you can broaden your use of a PC without fearing for its state. For more information on this, take a look at some of our recommended products at the featured section above for clarity.
