There’s a bit of a debate going on right now in the “upgrade world” as to which is better: multiple fans or water cooling?
Well the answer is… it depends. It depends on what type of system you have and what you mostly use it for. It also depends on how much room you have inside your case.
Water cooling is generally seen as having the best cooling properties. It is also much quieter than fan cooling. Most systems use a non-conductive liquid such as distilled water, deionized water, or other non-conductive coolant. They are water tight, but if a small leak develops, damage should be minimal. The downside to water cooling is that it can be expensive, there IS a chance of liquid damage to your system, they require ongoing maintenance, and the install is not for the faint of heart!
Fan cooling is much cheaper. It is also usually an easier install for the DIY type. The downside to fan cooling is you will need a number of fans or pretty large fans to get cooling equal to water cooling, the noise level of your PC will increase (sometimes exponentially!), and you may need to replace your power supply to handle the additional draw.
The cool side to either of these upgrades is that there are tons of really good looking mods available! LED lights, mini displays, glow in the dark tubing are just some of the possibilities!
Most PCs & Macs have inadequate cooling/venting for their processing needs. This can cause the processor to overheat, which in turn can cause malfunctions, slow operation and can even physically damage components. How do you know if your computer is suffering from poor cooling? Bring it in to Geek Easy and let our expert technicians evaluate it. They can give you upgrade recommendations and perform the installations for you!
