Help me with the location of my PC :S(exhausting heat outside)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I finally managed to score a 480mm radiator for my watercooling project. Now I need help exhausting the heat outside the room. I have 3 options more or less

Option 1, is a window towards the west, so for about 5-6 hours the sun hits this window, I can maybe fashion up some cover so the sun doesnt hit it directly.



Option 2, my closet used to be where the washer and drier lived, since then, they have been moved outside and now I have a heat extractor mounted in the ceiling, now im not sure if its been shut closed from elsewhere.



Option 3, probably the least easy, is running coolant lines outside thru the wall where the A/C unit is mounted and place the radiator outside. this would also mean the radiator gets sunshine most of the day.



so which would you choose? or any other ideas?

none of them. to be honest your idea is good as far as your trying to keep your room cooler and all, but the heat dump from a radiator with fans blowing through it is next to nothing. also youll be at a disadvantage, outside weather will affect your temps, i dont know were you live, but if it snows in winter or gets fairly hot in summer you want it inside anyway.

also youll be using a lot of tubing to run it that far, this will drop your pressure and flow rate, therefore increasing your temps. all in all its a bad idea. mount it on top or on the side of your case

Well considering my h50 dumps a ton of heat and my room is uncomfortable if I don't keep the a/c at 77*

If I keep the pc in the closet, the rad will be mounted on top

Build some duct work to move the air out the space next to the AC, the air inside the room will be pushed through the rad and the warmer air will go right outside. You wont need to worry about the sun heating up the rad with this, and you would only need a couple feet of ducting.

You missed....
Option 4 Pull up your floorboards and floor joists, dig a 10ft deep pit install 200 ft of tubing in the pit for your own geothermal heat sink. Now repeat ....it puts the lotion on or it gets the hose!

I've also seen tubing run through the floor and placing the rads underneath the house where it is always cool and dark.

Well, the L3p D3sk guy did it. If you've never heard of it, it's one of the most extreme watercooled projects I've ever seen. Prepare to lose at least an hour or two to reading this entire thread about it--it's completely worth it.

The pictures of what I'm talking about are in the first post though, so don't worry. 9th, 10th, and 11th pictures on the page, right after the parts list.
