So if I’m reading this right, you live here, a little anti-freeze in your loop and your benching is ok.If I take an AC unit, cool the air to -20c to replicate a place like Stanley and run it through my rads and across the MB in a closed loop system, it’s not. Damn the cold weather folks have it made in the Enthusiast League.
Thanks for the comments.So how are the Crows doing, haven't seen an Adelaide game in a while, so don't know their standing. Just finished watching the Swans/Hawks nice finish.
Can you use a fridge to cool a modern gaming computer, for 24 / 7 use? Mini / Dorm Refrigerator = NO Standard Size Two Door = NO Large Side By Side = No Commercial Reach In = Maybe, See Link, Specs in PDF The concept of cooling a computer with a fridge has surfaced in this forum on a regular basis. Search the word “fridge” you’ll get a pretty good...
To answer the often asked question. The mini/frig concept has two problems; refrigerators don’t have the capacity to handle most gaming computers. The other is the compressor is not designed for constant operation. 1 Watt = 0.0009485 btu(s) Taking 350 watts out of the air to represent a loaded computer. 350 x 0.0009485 = .331975 btu(s) x 3600 = 1195.11 btu(h) After spending some time searching for...
Had a 8086 in a Tandy XT which I sold and bought a CompuAdd 286 8mhz with a 20 meg HD.
Thank you, answered a lot of the uncertainties I had. Might of missed it but what size AC unit are you using, your –25c +/- chamber temp under load is right where I wanted to be on my own project. A lot better than a slush box concept I’ve been toying with.
Better price and new. Using a W3550 @ 4.7+ 3870 X2 = 10.9 in Vantage 5770 = 13.9 4890 = 15.3 2x 3870 X2 = 19.4 (Added) Two 4890s need more power than the 3870 X2s, based on my problems with a 800 watt PS and the 4890s.
Autoparts/Hardware Store Water Cooling. Personally I’d just use a variable D5 and draw off the bottom of the rad and let gravity and head pressure do most of the work through the rad tubes with the pump only pushing the water through the tubing and blocks on the MB/cpu to the inlet side of the rad. Fans would be more important, trying to get even air flow across the fins due to the size of the rad will be difficult. Having around a inch and half outlet is nice, if you...
Nice going
Based on the viscosity numbers this would be worth looking at, little easier on the pump. Had to replace a heater hose at -20+ F and the 50% P. glycol coolant was moving more on the lines 90w gear lube.
