IF you buy a kit would the tubes/metals condensate?
What materials condensate, because im useing artic silver 5, and im going to mount a water block to it?
Has anyone had any experience with AWC-1, i ordered it, its shipping.

hey i'm running my system with the full asetek kit and no condensation will happen because it doesn't got that cold like a phase change kit. the water will be a few degrees C above ambient/case temp. AS5 works great with any HSF or waterblock. Definately test your system outside of your comp and run it for like 30 mins or more to test for leaks before you put it in. If you do leak make sure you remove any power source and let id dry for a few days. Also make sure you read all instruction pertaining with that kit. Good luck with WC

Unless you are useing some kind of super cooling ( like a TECF or phase change) then you don't need to worry about condensation. Nothing will ever get below room temp so condensation isn't an issue. That only happens when the temp drops below the dew point, and unless it is foggy that doesn't happen at ambient temp.

Yes leaks can happen, that is why it is important to check for leaks befor starting the system. Leaks do not happen often if care is taken when putting your system together. If you use distilled water then a leak doesn't necesarrily mean fried equipment. I always use hose clamps.

i am creating a special type of water cooling, but i also use a rather explosive/poisoness gas to chill the water to below 20F. yes that means condinsation, duh, but, thats were insulation comes in. w/ the proper insulation, u could have smal punctures in ur system, and nvr actually let any water or gases out of the tubing/insulation.

and hey, y do ppl even think about this method of water cooling, the one all u guys r using now. all u have is a copper or aluminum cooliong coild w/ ambient water temp goin thro the coils, then simply cooled down not even 20 degrees by a small lil fan, then have it run onto ur CPU.......a lil pointless if u ask me. and how much does a top of the line system cost......150-300 iv heard. i built my cooling system for under 300 and the water entering the CPU heatsink and GPU heatsink are BELOW 30 F. and yes, that does mean normal water would freeze......and thats y i dont use normal water. i should have a few models done and ready for company testing by october or november. il try n supply sum pics wen its all dun. write me an email or sumtin to discuss this or water cooling BRAVOSNIPER47@gmail.com
