Hi guys. This is my first post on the forums however I have been on here just for a browse before.,

Anyway. I am interested in finding out about water-cooling and how it can benefit me at home. Obviously I have a pc but it is very loud at the moment. Does water-cooling make the computer silent? Meaning you cant actually hear any noise from the computer?

I'm not really sure what kit I need for my computer so i am wondering what do you actually need to make water-cooling work properly? Unfortunately Im not currently at home but what specs do you need to know about my pc? Any other info would also help. Thanks!

Hey, welcome to the forums!

Watercooling doesn't make computer silent as you still have to use fans to cool down the radiators. Now depending on the size you can have either 1 fan for a single rad, two fans for double rad, three fans etc. - you get the idea.

You can always go for passive cooled rads but you need lots of space to that.

What would help is:

- What's your case?
- What you want to watercool? i.e. CPU on its own, CPU+GPU etc.
- What's your budget?

When you say your PC is loud, what's exactly the loudest component there at the moment?
