Crazy water cooling idea - Page 3

post #21 of 23

Pre spiral the soft copper tub around a pipe of slightly larger diameter.

Then thread on to cold water main. Now pull and twist the soft copper tight to the cold water main use a few gear clamps to hol it tightly.

Becaue of the spiral, when you pull and twist it will naturally tighten on to the cold main. Something like a chinese finger puzzle.

For a system like that, you don't want a radiator. You want what is called a "Plate Heat Exchanger".

The main benefit of this device is to keep 2 sets of dissimilar fluids (in this case, distilled water with a biocide, and your normal house water) in different parts of the loop). That way you don't have to worry about a complex filter system before the water hits your computer water blocks.

You run with a simple pump, reservoir, and distilled water on one side of the "Plate Heat Exchanger" and on the other side, you attach it to the cold water line of your house.
