In this article, we uncover the reasons behind our choice to innovatively cool our overclocked servers.
Blackcore's custom-built liquid cooling loop utilizes the best components from our partners chosen after evaluating many different components. We run a full-proof quality control program at our HQ to ensure every loop is assembled to a platinum standard, then we apply our proprietary overclocking procedures to be able to run our systems at industry-leading overclocked rates whilst maintaining consistent all-core turbo ratios within temperature windows that maintain longevity.
The Top 3 Benefits of Liquid Cooling
1: Greater thermal efficiency, with less heat soak from other components.
Liquid cooling targets the CPU & GPU directly, this ensures a direct and concentrated cooling effect. This negates ambient heat soak from the chipset, VRMs, or other IO and prevents those components from having a negative impact on the temperature of the CPU. As the liquid cooling loop draws heat from the front to the back as a conventional server would, these components in the periphery of the socket are cooled in the conventional manner.
2: Maximises the frequency attainable with overclocking.
Liquid cooling keeps the CPU much cooler than traditional air cooling. As a result, we are able to push the clock rates of the CPU that much further than standard heat sink setups. Our CPUs are also de-lidded for optimum performance benefits, and optimum heat transfer to our liquid coolers.
3: Increases the consistency of system performance.
Liquid cooling enables us to maintain a lower baseline socket temperature while in production environments, this stops any thermal throttling or halting of the CPUs delivering a greater level of stability to highly demanding workloads, not only from a throughput perspective but also maximizing reliability.
