What is Liquid Cooling?

In this article, we’ll tell you what computer liquid cooling is and look at the advantages and disadvantages of this type of cooling for your PC.

Why Liquid Cooling?

First of all, everyone knows that CPUs are getting faster and faster every day. What comes with these faster speeds are an increasing number of transistors inside the CPUs, and also more power is used. What does it mean? Well, a lot more heat is produced!

These days, you won’t find a processor on the market without its own heatsink to decrease the heat generated by the CPU. But as CPU speeds continue to increase over time, so do fan speeds. And the faster the fans, the louder they get. That’s why we turn to other cooling solutions, and that’s where computer liquid cooling comes in.

Water Cooling PC How Does it Work

Much like a radiator in your car, PC liquid cooling systems work the same way to reduce the heat caused by CPUs. The system works by circulating a liquid through the CPU heatsink.

The liquid absorbs heat from the hot CPU, then the liquid moves to a heatsink located at the back of your computer case. The heatsink then transfers the heat out the back of the computer case and out into the air. The liquid then repeats this process as it rises through the CPU.

It may sound complicated, but it is actually a very simple process.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Liquid Cooling

Benefits of Liquid Cooling

Liquid cooling systems for your PC are a very efficient way to draw heat away from your CPU and are an additional and necessary requirement for overclocking them.

With liquid cooling, the temperature of the processors is much lower and therefore allows higher clock speeds. For example, some extreme overclockers have nearly doubled their CPU speed through the use of liquid cooling systems.

Another benefit of computer liquid cooling is that it reduces the noise of your PC. Unlike a lot of heatsinks and fans, a liquid cooling system will run much quieter. The system usually contains two fans, one is the fan to move the liquid through the PC and the other is the fan at the back of the PC case. Both of these fans are pretty quiet because they don’t need to spin very fast, compared to the fast-spinning and therefore noisy fans in a heatsink or CPU cooler.

Drawback of Liquid Cooling

The main disadvantage of liquid cooling at the moment is space. All parts of the system take up space, so you will need a large enclosure to install the cooling system.

Another disadvantage could be the difficulty of installing such a system. Do not install it yourself if you are not 100% sure of what you are doing, as you could damage your other components if it leaks.
