Cooling is a key aspect to achieve the best system performance of computer equipment. Traditionally we use air cooling, but watercooling apart from being quieter gets better results. Learn the secrets of this system and the necessary steps to implement it on your computer.
Speaker: Hans Peder Sahl (Denmark). He has been casemodding since he started playing with computers. Some of his first mods were very experimenting using different materials. He is experimenting until today and always aiming to try something new. His general aim in modding is to create something people have not seen before, and he admits that he will get bored if he has to make something thousands of other people have already made. His latest mod, PC-Beto made it into the magazine Custom PC twice, was nominated for Bit-Tech´s Mod of the year, and won Mod of the month. At the moment he is very fascinated by 3D printing and uses this method a lot in his current mod "Project M8", which he will bring to Campus Party Europe in Berlin. When he is not modding or trying out a new watercooling gear, he studies Integrated Design at the University of Southern Denmark.
One of the most annoying aspects of a computer is its noise. This is associated with a poor cooling operation or a hardware overload and is a sign that your computer is at a minimum performance. Learn what are the components that you can modify and how to keep your computer up and running smooth as silk.
Speaker: Óscar Jiménez was one of the pioneers in the watercooling construction and design field. He founded his own company related with high-efficiency hardware and PCs customization. He is one of hard-h2o.com admins and has given several modding and hardware workshops at CP Valencia.
