Why Watercool your PC?

Unlock Potential. Unparalleled Temperatures. Unparalleled Performance.

Water Cooling allows us to achieve incredible performance by pushing your CPU and Graphics Card to their limits by overclocking, while keeping them cool at the same time.

Our specialist team build incredible custom water loops. They’re masters of their art and are ready to craft your next #BEAST.

WHAT TYPES OF WATER COOLING ARE THERE?

There are 2 main types of Water Cooling;

  1. Hydro/Liquid Cooling also known as AIO
  2. Custom Loop Water Cooling

HYDRO/LIQUID COOLING (AIO)

AIO stands for ‘All in One’ cooling systems. This simple yet effective ‘closed loop’ form of cooling from the likes of Corsair, Cooler Master, NZXT and Thermaltake brings hydro cooling to the masses in a cost effective way.

A typical AIO cooler combines a pump, tubes, radiator and fans in one sealed/closed unit for easy installation and virtually no maintenance.

AIO coolers are considered the best for cooling short of a custom loop. Many of our Gorilla Gaming PCs come with a AIO pre-installed for that reason.

If you want a AIO in your new build or want to upgrade from your current air cooler simply pop in-store and speak to a member of our team and we’d be more than happy to advise you on the best cooler and show you all of our AIO options.

CUSTOM WATER COOLING

Custom Water Cooling is an art and a project in itself.

The simplicity or complexity of a custom loop all depends on your requirements, the hardware selected and how minimal or outlandish you want the end result to be. The options are almost limitless!
Custom loops consist of installing each component individually to your specific requirements, making your build that little more unique.

Typical components for a custom water loop are detailed in the ‘Anatomy of a Water Cooled Build’ as shown in our diagram below.

Anatomy of a Watercooled Build

\

RADIATOR

The radiator cools down the liquid flowing through the loop. As the liquid passes through the radiator the micro fins in the radiator absorb heat from the liquid. The fins in turn are cooled by the fans attached to the radiator.

\

FANS

Fans are very important for every custom loop as they provide high-static pressure to cool the radiator and liquid while remaining as quiet as possible at the same time.

\

CPU BLOCK

Water blocks are used to transfer heat from the source to the liquid that flows through the block. Micro fins that increase the cooling surface make the block a very crucial part of any custom loop.

\

GPU BLOCK

Water blocks are used to transfer heat from the source to the liquid that flows through the block. Micro fins that increase the cooling surface make the block a very crucial part of any custom loop.

\

COOLANT

The coolant is an essential part to the custom loop, it flows through the loop taking the heat away from the block and cycling through the radiator to cool it down. There are many colour options and types to choose from when choosing your coolant.

\

RESERVOIR

A reservoir holds all the coolant for a custom loop. It also allows air bubbles to slowly be replaced with water as it circulates to ensure the loop is seamless and bubble free. Reservoirs can be stand-alone or combined with a pump, mounted horizontally or vertically and available in many different sizes.

\

FITTINGS

Fittings are used to connect the tubes/pipes to the rest of the components in the custom loop. These are available in various different sizes and colours, making the right choice is essential to completing your custom loop.

\

TUBING/PIPES

Tubes/pipes are used to connect each component together to complete the loop. The most obvious decision to make when building a custom loop is choosing between hard or soft pipe. Hard pipe is rigid and gives a much cleaner look, where as soft pipe is flexible and easier to install.

\

PUMP

The pump is the heart of every custom loop as it provides the circulation of the liquid in the loop by pushing it through all of the components and pipes.

SEE IT IN ACTION

Here you can see the liquid filling up through a completed custom water loop. We start by filling the Reservoir with the selected coolant. We them power the Pump independently to circulate the coolant which travels through its cycle filling all Water Blocks and Pipes on the loop.
