Liquid Cooling anybody?





Scorpio
Check this out.
Probably the best example of cost-efficient liquid cooling?

This what I call a big mod project.


Wow!


I really salute these guys. What a great job.

You can also add a pump that'll push the oil through a water radiator.
That'll cool it even more.

Read then mails that they've got on that: very un-efficient, but the coolest cooling is for sure Smile

Eww, bad idea. You will have to replace the cooking oil at least once a month.

Therefore, this is very inefficient for cooling. There are better ways though: http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=802563

In order to PROPERLY cool, you would have to do something like that; chemicals are the best solution.


I was considering a while back using distilled water (pure water = nonconductive) in a fully sealed tank to do something of this sort, but I was (and still am) fully broke...

hey Psyco (D Z) if you read the artical you will see that they tried Distilled water, however, even the distilled water had SOME ions left which lead to current leakage which eventually lead the cpu after about 5 minute of the test to shut itself down due to a power surge.

(PS see you this weekend)

Hi Ted Laughing

You would need a large amount of distilled water (at least 3x what you will be filling) so you can filter it through, and get all the crap out. I also know you can buy water de-ionizing chemicals, which would be useful for this purpose... Either way, vegetable oil is a distugusting option, which will ultimately lead to a high-maintainance (and stinky) computer.
