Cooling Upgrade, Phase 4: Liquid Cooling (ATCS 840) (Part 2)
I know I’ve broached water-cooling before, but I hope my last two posts demonstrate that there’s very little to fear from giving water-cooling a try. While not as simple as air-cooling, assembling a custom water-cooling system is really pretty straightforward. Not only that, but it’s also fun! Plus you get improved performance (i.e., better cooling) as well! Lastly, I just think water-cooling systems are just beautiful to look at.
Another point I would like to emphasize more as I conclude is that Cooler Master’s cases, particularly those on the upper end of the price range, have long been designed to accommodate both air-cooling and water-cooling systems pretty much out of the box. You don’t have to hack the cases up just to mount your radiator. Given the age of the ATCS 840, Cooler Master has demonstrated that their case designs have staying power. That’s why the ATCS 840 is a bona-fide classic, a case that any of its owners can be very proud of.
I know I am.
As always, if you have any questions or thoughts on my blog posts (or whatever else you may want to talk about), you can always leave a comment here. Feel free to follow me on Twitter or befriend me on Facebook; you can even send me a private message on OverClock.Net (OCN, my internet home), if that tickles your fancy.
Next week: You’ll see my ATCS 840 one final time. I’ll show you a very easy mod you can apply to your own Cooler Master case. Come to think of it, this is the sort of mod you can try on lots of Cooler Master items, including mice, power supplies, maybe even fans!
What is this mod?
Tune in next week to find out!
