Would this actually work?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I've been thinking for the past few days, and was wondering this. If I set up a loop for liquid cooling, can i put liquid nitrogen in the reservoir? I know it will most likely not work, but It's just a question I've been pondering.

You would need tubing that could handle the subzero temps

no it would evaporate you would need a constant supply of it it boils (evaporates at -196c) if it makes contact with anything warmer than that it boils away

Lol took me a second to actually think about it.

Yeah that won't work because of what was said above, the nitrogen will just evap cause of its low boiling point, you'd have to have you're entire rig at below -196 degrees for it to stay liquid and at the point it would be redundant

Ok, thanks for the answers. Don't worry, I wasn't actually going to do this

Liquid nitrogen isn't liquid because it's a liquid. It's liquid because it's cold.
APU what?

if you sealed the loop the tubing would either burst or come off of the barbs because of the expansion of the LN2 as it evaporates
