    Watercooling additives

    im currently watercooling my opteron however since the sunny weather has come to town my temps are shooting up ive jumped from 25-27 degrees to 38-40. My room where my rig lives is pretty warm but ive got no way of cooling that much other than opening a window

    i saw some water additives on various websites which is supposed to help take the heat out of the water:

    would this make much difference or am i going to have to put some case fans in ??

    Cheers

    I would say just add a couple of quiet 120mm fans, its not as if its going to increase the noise level much...

    if the room is hot, then theres not a lot you can do about it, apart from maybe back off the volts a bit until the weather cools down. extra fans wont hurt, but wont change the cpu temps.

    If you put a fan directly over the cpu it migth be a bit cooler, coolant wont help though.
