yeah, that could work - if you never ever have fog/mist/snowblizzard

Love the door opening mechanisme thumb.gif

Fan controller and antifreeze and you have yourself a year round way to keep heat out of your house. Though kinda nice to be able to use the PC as a heater during the winter.

I just had that idea 2 days ago... I was gonna do it on my next build and be famous for coming up with such a great cooling system, but now I'll just be the guy who turned your great idea into a real thing. Oh well, I guess I'll have some other cool idea at some point...

been done, in 2002 or 2003 if not earlier -include pro-cooling and/or xtremecooling/xtremesystems in your search

The problem remains: in winter you need to run +50% antifreeze AND you have a very big chance of condenstation on blocks & hoses indoors/in PC

Use a fluid tight pressurized loop, and Novec 7000. It has a freezing point of -120, and if you pressurize the loop a bit you could increase it's boiling point. (Novec 7000 boils at 40celcius)

If you could keep the loop fluid tight, and pressurize it you could have a pretty wicked cooling system in the winter.

Edit: Come to think of it there are probably a lot of refrigerants you could use as coolants in place of Novec 7000 that would be a LOT cheaper.

yeah, like distilled + glycol smile.gif
... if your outside temp is below zero, does it matter that your loop runs at only 80-90% capacity?

Anyways, the point is moot, as long as there is not something in place to deal with potential condensation on blocks/hose with the PC indoor & the rad outdoor setup remains risky.
There ARE ways of dealing with it, but increasingly inconvenient smile.gif

50/50 glycol+distilled would be way to viscous at subzero to function with a normal PC cooling pump. You'd need some sort of specialized pump. Beyond that, you'd need to run the pump 24/7, or I would imagine parts would start freezing up on a bad night.
