Is It Possible To Build An 0db High End Comupter? - Page 12

Thats a good option too. All of these equal lower hardware or higher cost thou. Can someone give links to these electic silent coolers? I cant find them

google thermal electric cooler or peltier device and you should be able to find venders for it. however... DO realize that TEC(thermal electric coolers) are NOT efficient. you will be doubling the thermal output of your CPU by trying to cool it with a TEC. which means a HUGE passive heatsink on the other side of the TEC.

best option I have seen so far is put computer in another room and run the cables to the recording studio. That would also keep the room a little cleaner and have more space for stuff.
You could wire up a box to plug everything into, it would include all the USB and everything with power and reset buttons on it, so that would just sit on your desk in place of the tower, which would be in the other room.

You could plunge the whole thing into minaril oil as well. Enough volume and it could be all passive.

You can work on your "mineral oil immersed" computer yourself.There are fanless power supplies.I would be checking just what a professional sound studio uses when they want a computer in the room,then reverse engineer.

No really, i looked it up. Its basicly a fish tank, in goes your parts (no hard drives thou, ssds are fine) then in goes mineral oil. Its liquid cooling, but the oil isnt conductive so you can pour it right over your stuff. With enough volume, its effective enough it have no moving parts.

This - it works 100% it's simple and honestly - the difference it makes is huge.

With audio interfaces running on firewire or usb it's no big problem to drill a couple holes in the floor (if it's carpeted when you remove the cables no one will even notice) and use a couple long usb cables.

It also means you can overclock your PC - chuck some quality high cfm fans and filters on it and not have to stress.

You may still need radiators and fans for even submerged mineral oil cooling. Oil gets hot just like water. It may be simpler just to go water-cooling or get really big heatsinks like Thermalright and Noctua.

one of my friends runs his 990x passively using a CM hyper z600 (its not overclocked and i am unable to tell you load temps)
Its probably not ideal seeing as the cooler is only meant to handle 89w TDP passively.
But it works

I agree it would be simpler, but if theres enough volume for the heat to spread out you wouldnt need the fans. However, plunging your computer in mineral oil does border on insaneity
