Heatpipes

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
What are in heatpipes??? I know that it can move heat away from one place to another using hot vapour and condestion and whatever inside the tubes, but what the heck is inside them?

Also is the any alternative liquid/gas use colud put into the pipes?

Thx

They can use water in a partial vacuum, alcohol, refrigerant gasses or petroleum distilates like butane.

i wonder if you can make like one giant pipe that comes from the HS and stick out really far with tons of fans and a 25 cm fan. that would be cool.

Or you can buy water cooling. Save the hassle. I doubt you can make your own heatpipe very easily, since the liquid evaporates at room temperature and pressure.

Do you know what it is called when you have a huge copper pipe filled with a coolant that boils at room temperature attached to your CPU? Liquid Nitrogen, or LN2 cooling. Look it up. It isn't the same thing, but it would be a heck of a lot more effective than one huge heatpipe.

if your serious enough to look into that kinda stuff, look at phase

I've thought about that in the past as well. At that point, you might as well go phase.

There was an article I read about a guy who made his own heatpipes for test applications in his home it seems. So it can be done.

Heatpipes can contain H2O, Mercury (doubt a lot of PC's have this one), Amonia, and a few other liquids. And basically as it heats it raises the heat to the top of the pipe where then it goes on to the fins. At that point the heat is "blown" away by the fan. Now the liquid then inside is brought back down by a wick system that is all around the heatpipe. It seems so simple but doubt it is.
