Anyone ever run a H100/H100i or similar without fans? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
It may work ok for intermittent and very small heat loads or if you are able to produce a strong drafting of sorts, but I had hoped it would do better on the test bench.

Conventional rads are just a bit too dense to really do passive very well in the compact size and small exchange deltas we desire. I have seen some examples of custom built radiators for passive that supposedly worked but they were pretty massive car radiator sized. Have also seen people use 55 gallon drum reservoirs as remote heat storage but eventually you need to extract the heat from the fluid. Just hard to justify passive when really low speed fans can keep the sizes down to practical levels and keep noise in check.

Then there are those with remote (separate room) rads that plumb lines through walls, etc. There is no limit on options if you get creative..smile.gif

Unfortunately creativity isn't a huge option as I'm currently renting, and don't have the funds for any sort of huge external rad setup or anything. I was mostly just curious as to what I could do with the features I have available. Still, who knows? It might work out for me, it's still worth at least a test-shot.
