The way to avoid fans and radiators in your loop - Page 6

post #51 of 57
I have done this, when i was testing out my custom waterblock and i didnt have a radiator, so i used a 20 litre heat dump. It worked well enough for my short term benching, but i left it stress testing and came back a few hours later and the water had increased by about 12C (was a few years ago now so i dont quite remember).

I once also read about someone doing something similar with their swimming pool, they had one loop which contained the pool and a liquid to liquid heat exchanger. They then ran a loop between that heat exchanger to their computer, this meant that the corrosive chlorines and impurities from the pool stayed well away from the computer waterblocks.

I know another member on this forum who attempted this with a larger volume of water, from what i remember it worked for him until his pump died.

I am all for "forward thinking" but in this case I say "No Go". Fans and rads are not such a burden, or did I just take a joke seriously?

This is a photo of me testing my first waterblock with a heat dump. Very simple really.
