  • Thermal transfer heavily relies on surface area, so yes a thicker block doesn't help but the more metal that comes in contact with the liquid will transfer more heat to the water.

  • "adding additional water only slows equilibrium"... Theres zero reason for more water without additional cooling.... Bleed and use a automotive honda radiator(seriously, like a 88-91') and put a 8-10in box fan as its quieter and easy 12v... YOU HAVE TO BLEED YOUR LINES.... AFTER LINES ARE BLED pump should work with more normal effort. Putting your cooling source like external radiators lower help by using thermodynamics to facilitate its own current. . Technically using a automotive radiator like a honda (88-91) or acura(90-93) will allow you to modify either the top channel OR a large hose to use a inline pump with ease. If cutting top channel it can be sealed with a modified cpvc pipe(cpvc is rated for highier temps) . Combine this with your ac.. dude.. it might actually then be up to half assed level of cooling. . Honestly alot of your planning and engineering is flawed from the start.. Its still a entertaining watch ect.. but really so much wasted effort vs creating a one way chamber utilizing all the flowing air by a massive radiator like said automotive type being pushed/pulled by a high cfm high static pressure fan. like a 8in 600+cfm inline or a 1200cfm variable dc.... Used in conjuction with a portable ac it would then actually be effective without creating condensation.... . . . If you honestly want the coolest temps.. you need only look at the planet. Use the fkn ground, in all seriousness. Its nothing new.

  • You should be able to use kerosene (yes I am serious) as a coolant. Pre-chill the kerosene with dry ice in a insulated container to solidify and separate out any residual waxes before filling you loop with it. Use a high flow aquarium pump, and don't bother with placing a can in the middle of the coil. don't bother with a secondary loop you don't need it.

  • A lot of people think cooling is making something cold when it fact it is taking the energy in this case heat away from something. There is literally no such thing as cold there is only less warm. So the best coolant is the one that absorbs as much heat as possible and and looses it as quickly as possible through the radiator.

  • Do you find it difficult when someone you know, and works in the same space as you, makes a video grading your sponsors performance as a company with mostly F's. More specifically the end product and customer service. I understand there's no way to word this without it coming off as inflammatory but I'm just genuinely curious. As a consumer of the content it's an odd feeling seeing the sponsor of someone's video being the subject of another person's video (whom they seem to have a friendly relationship with) where they're exposed for some unprofessional behaviour towards concerned customers and F worthy scores on customer service product satisfaction. I was wondering how the feeling was on the content creator side

  • its about surface areas. and dont try to cool a cpu below room temperature. condensation is a bitch. and its unnecessary. insulating the block is a bandaid solution. ideal setup is a thermostatic mixing valve. maintain constant temp through the CPU, mixing with a chilled tank. water not only has better thermal mass than glycol, but it also absorbs the maximum heat at about body temp. was always the way we ran industrial chillers on electronic gear. i have no idea why basic engineering concepts never seem to carry over into IT...

    Muckin 4onMuckin 4on4 tháng trước
  • Why use the can, if you already have the coil? I'm sure that was a one or the other suggestion from the scientist. Edit: Never mind, I didn't know you use a pump for the circulation. I expected a electric drill and a industrial kitchen stirring thing in the bucket.

  • Really awesome Jay went back and improved his experiment like a true inventor! 5.2 ghz is insane for a bucket of antifreeze and water /dry ice! Copper is such a good conductor of heat/cold its why auto radiators were made out of copper for 75 yrs until they figured out how to make aluminum work for a lower cost but giving up some thermal efficiency. It saves automakers a good amount of money per vehicle and shaves a bit of weight which is their other holy grail. Cost and weight are the 2 things they build most of a car around to try to hit crazy regulation figures politicians establish.

  • Hey jay. Automotive A/C Refrigerant. If you could turn a CPU water block, into an A/C evaporator. it could get to sub zero temperatures. Not sure how you could rig it up. but i think it's possible. I would LOVE to see this happen. You could even use a regular automotive A/C system, mounted outside the vehicle, and drive the Compressor via an Electric motor, with some large electric fans used for the condenser. This will cause a lot of condensation, but that only verifies how cold it's getting.

    L0rdKull0ssL0rdKull0ss4 tháng trước
    • Or even taking the Refrigeration system out of an actual freezer and turning the water block into the evaporator. probably a lot easier than rigging an automotive system.

  • *cough*: Isopropyl alcohol becomes increasingly viscous when decreasing temperature and freezes at −89 °C (which is about 10 degrees further than dry ice can go).

    dragade101dragade1015 tháng trước
    • 95% Ethanol is the way to go for this. We use that for chemistry that requires low temperatures. Acetone is even better but won't play nice with the plastic components in the loop. You do have to exercise caution though, can give you frostbite extremely quickly because there's no protective leidenfrost effect from an insulating layer of CO2 gas or nitrogen with LN2.

  • Hey JayzTwoCents! Long time commenter, first time viewer... I was watching @8:52 where you got the shop towels around the CPU block. Have you considered borrowing a technique for the space program where dealing with super chilled helium and oxygen tanks of using a foam compound sprayed onto the block to maximize the thermal internal capture and prevent the condensation? Just a thought... Love the channel and the work!

  • Having more water in the loop does help, and not just because of it taking longer to heat up. If you got enough water it will transfer that heat to the environment meaning you can cool your PC forever that way without water ever becoming too hot. The bad side is that it would take a lot of water, idk the physics but I'm guessing at least a couple of cubic meters of water.

Ok not really how it happened but more entertaining just like this content. I enjoyed watching it however now that It interested me we/you can do better. Obviously the simplest way is to remove the cooling loop and use a ln2/DI evaporator however that defeats the purpose of this being fun/sciency. I saw the temps and they are kinda meh but seriously we can do way better. People still have my contact info in the industry even though I am mostly retired so feel free to contact me and we can take this DI water cooling loop to levels reserved for the gods of men no seriously lets just make it much colder.

  • Your new cooler looks a lot like an immersion chiller we use in Homebrewing beer. You should take a look at a Plate Chiller (Blichmann is one of the best brands) these work a lot like a radiator with hot liquid flowing in one direction and cold liquid flowing in the other around it (not sure if that makes sense), but they are very fast heat transfer and really good

  • Another absolutely silly idea to help eliminate moisture... a vacuum chamber.. create a large sealed vacuum chamber for the MB and components. Otherwise you could always try submerging it in mineral oil or something.. of course those are messy but it's just an idea to keep the moisture from condensing on the MB.

    Thomas CoolidgeThomas Coolidge5 tháng trước
  • Aren't there already some mineral-oil cooling solutions out there? oil has a much lower freeze point than -35°C. According to wikipedia the classic gasoline you recieve at each gasstations goes down to -45°C and there will be much lower temps available.
