The way to avoid fans and radiators in your loop - Page 4

post #31 of 57
due to the fact that you could under NO circumstance have fish in it, it isnt worth the space/time/effort.

i would much rather a gigantic passive rad and use the tank for fish ( i own many)

Booze + pills = fish tank radiator

on a serious note, I don't think it would be worth all the effort. And eventually that water would heat up if it was kept under full load for an extended period of time. You would still need some kind of surface area to disipate heat.

edit: booze + pills also = typos as well. j/k of course. typos fixed. =]

2.47 watt/hours per gaLlon per degree. 300 watts in heat would raise water temps of 150 gallons in 12 hours.. Water does have really good specific heat capacity, but it's not that good and heat still has to be dissipated somehow.

A 10 gallon tank would only take a few hours to reach cooking temps. A nice long session of battlefield could serve you both a nice gaming session and dinner all in one...

Please! For the sake of my research! Please, tell me how did you get the "2.47 watt/hours per gallon per degree"!

Just think about all the algae buildup you'll get in your watercooling system ! =[
I can't believe no one mentioned a liquid <> liquid HX. Koolance sells them. Lets you throw a regular system in your case, put the hx in series somewhere, and hook the garden hose to it. Now you have a computer with tubing so cold you have condensation problems (or you could have an external radiator system that doesn't confine your computer to your living room).

Nah. They make those. They're cheap, and found in the back of most toilets.


Someone, please build a PC like this. It'll be redneck as can be! A 50 gallon drum full of water with a 2-stroke circulating pump and a toilet valve to keep it filled off the garden hose in the creek out back.

Where are the OCN red neck engineers hiding? I know you're out there...

Aquarium is really cheap. To buy a 1 cubic meter tank is not a hard work.
