BIG ISSUE: When is water cooling going to be Mainstream?

Watercooling is quite specialist in the computer engineer trade in England, circa 2011. I have phoned from yellow pages. Hardly any engineer provides service for water cooled computers. Some don't even know about it. In fact some even criticise water cooled computers including computer vendors. Some that could build it don't guarantee their work. All this is really a shame. Could anyone provide a computer engineers list specialising or including watercooling installing and repairs in London and surrounding location. I hope there are initiatives to stop this draining to the aircooling sector. Perhaps government intervention is required to encourage watercooling PC building included in BTEC and other courses. Might be an idea to write to your Member of Parliament suggesting improving computer courses and also allowing user control over their water coolant. Petitioning could also help.

Err ok....

No intervention is required, if you want to have a watercooled PC then you will have to build it yourself, do research and then buy the parts.

Education about watercooling is required.
Corsair H70 as far as I know does not allow user to control coolant.

I think that because pcs are generally just third party bits assembled together, its quite easy for alot of people to repair pcs without being engineers.

If a bit fails they just replace the bit, they generally arent true engineers and wouldnt know a transistor from a diode, and wouldnt know a schematic drawing from an oil painting.

So if watercooling was main stream pc repair engineers would get even more confused.

You would have to send your pc to a specialist with knowledge of electronics/basic engineering etc etc, rather than your Joe bloggs pc shop.

Watercooled pcs i wouldnt say is difficult to fix though, i mean, its a very simple loop process

res-pump rad setup.

I wonder though if anyone would end up calling a plumber to fix their pcs?, that would actually be quite funny.

I think you're taking this issue far too seriously.

Water Cooling is, and always will be an enthusiast technology.

The more technology advances the less heat it produces. Compare an SB i5 to a P4 2.8ghz.

First of all, your local MP has nothing what so ever to do with this issue and frankly a letter to him/her about it is nothing short of wasting their time.

Water cooling will never be standard in PCs, and it shouldn't be. How much extra energy would a huge office of water cooled PCs use over the standard crap boxes in there now.

In short: What have you been smoking?

If you took a pc with watercooling to a repair shop, would they refuse to fix it?, im not sure, im betting that most would be happy to undertake the task?

No doubt the hours may clock up if the faults lie with the watercooling parts?, drain refill etc etc.

Agreed, 100%. Watercooling will never be mainstream. People want their computers to just work, they don't want fiddle with cooling and constantly having to change coolant. It is enthusiast for a reason.

Chap, you keep spamming these forums, please stop. You're making it very untidy.

Edit: In fact, post reported for being spam....again.

It's funny, for all of 3 seconds. But when you notice he's done about 4 threads on what is fundamentally the same subject and they've all become a spam fest because he never answers questions in any intelligible language, it starts to annoy.

Let's do a search for books on Amazon.co.uk or any other booksellers for watercooling computers, there are no books totally about watercooling.

So basically you want it handed to you? Sometimes in life you have to look a little further than Amazon.co.uk or the Yellow Pages to find your answer.
