    Liquid cooling VS fan cooling
    « on: September 24, 2009, 07:15:15 PM »
    Hey iv been looking at aftermarket CPU coolers because my case is pretty hot.
    I will be keeping fans in my system just to git rid of the remaining hot air in my case.
     So the basic question is which is better at COOLING a liquid system or fan system?
    Just kind of wondering, this is a little bit of a non serious question

    All things being equal, liquid cooling.  Also, cooling properties of various liquids are not the same.  It's the reason most car engines are liquid cooled.  However, the heat exchanger probably still needs a fan.

    Liquid cooling is the best. It cools well and is quiet. You can either buy a cooling pump for a PC or a car pump.
    You can also use air coooling with similar temperatures but can get noisy and quiet ones get hot.
