I have a frio ock and i cant evan oc it to 4ghz without temps being 60+!!! so i was thinking if i just bought a radiator and a cpu water block would it work? Would i have to buy a pump? or would just a two 120 mm fan radiator and a cpu water block work to cool my cpu to at least 4ghz My cpu is a i5 2500k

    Why oh why would you want stagnant hot water cooling your AWESOME CPU. Yes you need a pump. Something like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181013&Tpk=h70 is a self contained closed water cooling system. You don’t need to maintain it like a conventional water cooling system. Nor do you need to buy a separate pump. How would the water get from the block to the surface of the CPU and back again? You can read this To move water through the system, a water cooling pump must be used. Many water cooling setups use submerged pumps which sit inside the reservoir. Generally speaking, a pump with 100-300 g/h should be sufficient; although that will depend on what components you have in the rest of your system. A pump should be just powerful enough to move water through the system without allowing it to sit inside a water block for an extended time. If the water moves too slowly, it will not be able to effectively whisk heat away from the chip. If the water moves too quickly, it won’t have adequate time to soak up the heat from the water block. Which is an excerpt from here http://www.xoxide.com/water-cooling.html.I use the Cooler Master V8 cooler with Arctic Silver thermal compound marrying the two, CPU and heatsink, together.
