ice in res? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
If you were to lower the temp of the fluid in the res, but not below room temp, that should be ok right?

I mean, just use it to reduce the bulk of the heat... I didn't think water cooling was to get the temp as low as possible, as much as it is more generally to just dissipate the most heat possible.

of course you could throw some ice cubes in the res if you're careful, but the real question should be: would it be practical.

prolly not considering the cubes would be melted every 10 minutes or less and you are most likely melting tap water into your system, unless you had an ice core, but still it is really impratical.

This.

Like I said earlier.. it'll hardly be worth it for such a minimal temp decrease over such a short period of time.

I was actually just considering something like this...


Only, dry ice not ice


I think I'll risk the condensation though, I'll be insulating my board shortly for TEC cooling anyway.

Do a read up on how condensation happens, Anytime your bringing it below ambient temps your gonna get condensation.

Take a Peltier Cooler, Hot one Side, Cold other side, Even this draws moisture from the air, No water involved but will produce condensation.

Refer to my previous posts in this thread or google "dew point". It's not a bad thing to warn those who are unaware about condensation but this statement is actually inacurate.
