electric leaf blower

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
i once used one to build myself a small hovercraft and i just was looking at some threads where people are looking for fans with ridiculously high cfm. so y not try an electric leaf blower, aside from being loud as hell it does move a good amount of air. not sure how it would do running 24/7 though. im trying to point out to some people that if u want crazy cfm in ur case u gotta think of crazy ideas

there is a level where the amount of cfm doesn't help anymore.

Plans for hovercraft please! I'll attach 12 gas powered to a lazyboy and never walk again!

your only going to blow heat off a sink as fast as it can sink so after about 100cfm theres hardly any point. Unless you got some kind of magic metal that sinks faster than copper on your rig.

After about 100cfm the next step is to cool the air or move on to phase.

Semantics. The point is that the rate of diffusion (heat in this case) for metals is going to be the limiting factor. Even if you go with silver, the super high CFM as opposed to very high CFM won't make a difference. I guess you could say the thermal properties of the sink are "bottlenecking" the air cooling.

Edit: I would certainly like to see a write-up and pictures of this experiment though!

so I'm suppose to believe you have a pure silver sink on your computer right now?

C-bro, pretty much explains it.
Unless theres some material I don't know about once your hitting 100-200cfm it doesn't matter till you start chilling the air. There is not enough diffrence in pure silver than pure copper to make use of a leaf blower. sorry.

Theoretically the denser the air the better the transfer thats why water works so well because its dense but blowing it over a sink fast isn't going to do all that much unless your computing off the side of Mt. Everest or something and the air is very thin.

This goes for watercooling too. There is a balance in flow vs. heat transfer because the copper can only sink so fast, so I dono why some of you guys think air is special like it has its own laws outside the boundaries of this universe.
