Im looking into water cooling and want to get the aquarius 3 but i dont like the hose that comes with it and i want to get uv hose but have 0 idea what size the hose is
I also wanna get a second resevoir but dunno if i can do a second resevoir if it already hase a built in one please help me
I don't know that there are many here who watercool, but I think with a ruler, you should be able to measure the outside diameter and thickness of the hose. You might also want to match the length of the original hose.
Also, check this link for a review of the A3, where it mentions that the hose is 3/8":
The manufacturer's spec (Thermaltake) is here:
As far as a second reservoir, I don't know that you should add one - it might mess up the hydraulics of the system.
Hope this helps.
only real reason i want to add another resevoir is i hear the water keeps high temperatures longer my aquarius 2 gets extremely hot over a period of about 72 hours the water takes an extremely long time to cool however when i extended the resevoir it had more water and cooled about 3xs better and held about 50% less heat only thing im concerned about is the preasure i would lose but they say its a professional application water cooler and im willing to fork the 246 bucks to run it in my acrylic case if it can run an axuliary water resevoir
The water resevoirs also give the case a nice touch when ya look at dyed water in the bay of an acrylic
i have a Aquarious II and well yeah it does get quite hot not much better then air cooling if at all better and yes im looking at ways to increase cooling performance and i was thinking of adding a second radiator but i dont know where to find a radiator that is compatible with the aquarious II so let me know what you think of the idea and also if you kow of any radiators let us know thanx
maybe you guys should put some fans in your systems.
If you want better/more radiator just use an automotive heater core ( the bigger the better) and go to a harware store to get the fittings to adapt the hoses.
the radiators sold in watercooling kits aren't anything special.
Another Aquarious horror story.
