Might want a good filter!

Should this setup work?

Might suck waiting 18hrs for a shower though!

P/V= I = (300 / 1.4 = 215A)

68370sec ~ 18hrs......

Open for mistakes... ;p its been a while since I left school...
Yeah, looks about right, although this assumes a 100% closed system (not saying you should have done it another way as that'd be a major pain ) whereas if I were building a 70l tank to cool my loop I'd probably use a copper one instead of an insulated one and a copper tank would dissipate a lot of heat in 18 hours.
Then again I'd also stick as many copper plates to it as is humanly possible so I'd basically have a 70l rad and at that point I'd be far better off with this.

Edit: pics on page 3.

First I was interested in a chiller but I'm afraid of condensation.....

Yea it would work...kinda.
Assuming you don't use your computer at full load (if you do then you'll overheat) you should be able to keep it up for a good while. But most likely you'd reach a point where your CPU (and water temps) were idling at ridiculous temperatures.

I agree with you, but i'll never run full load that long! Also I never use my pc for more that 4hrs...

Nice maths. It could work, especially if you put the water container outside (covered obviously) or somewhere cool.

As for the maths, are you taking into account that while the CPU is heating up the water, it will be trying to cool itself back down to 20 degrees (the water)?

Yes sure, the container would be outside and covered in summer....
Ambient temp would be 30C in summer in shade, this will also help reducing temp...

Oh man, i didn't see that you were in Malta.

Shame you're not somewhere with an average temp of 2 degrees

It's worth a shot though, what's the worst that can happen?

Good luck moving your PC after you're all hooked up

Get some Quick Disconnects.
