Block and Tubing

The last part of the kit is the water block that sits on top of the CPU. Again, it has two holes (each of which is labelled ‘in’ or ‘out’ so as to avoid confusion) for the nozzles to be installed and mounting holes on both sides for the brackets.

The base is pure copper both very smooth and reflective and should make for a good contact as I couldn’t see any machining defects or dirt on the base; a plastic cover helps the preservation of the base too.

Ok so now all the hardware has been covered; let’s move on to the tubing and connections. There is about 3 metres of the 3/8th inch blue tubing – plenty for the setup to be installed with lots of room for manoeuvre.

In order to join the hardware with the tubing, each part needs two metal nozzles to be screwed in – these can be hand tightened. The tubing then slots over the nozzle and a clamp holds it in place – I’ll explain more in the installing part.

The final and very crucial part of the Aragon 900 is the coolant. It comes pre-prepared and doesn’t require mixing with any extra de-ionised water. Containing 72% water, 25% ethylene glycol and various other chemicals, the liquid will aid the cooling process much better than 100% water would. Note also that the coolant has more additives such as anti-freeze, anti-corrosive, anti-rust, anti-foamer and anti-UV.
