You wouldn't use TECs for a real life Novec 7000 cooling setup, you would just use a regular pump / big radiator and move the 3M liquid through it. The liquid boils at 93.2F, so ambient temps are enough to cool it down significantly without a TEC. With the radiator bringing down the liquid's temperature, the "bubbles" would naturally condensate without a TEC. You could even use a sprayer in the gas area to keep the pressure down...


The main issue is sealing up the entire PC. It needs to be 100% airtight for such a setup to work, and every single cable coming from the computer needs a perfect seal around it. Theoretically, it'd be easy enough for a case manufacturer to make "passthrough" connectors on the case itself. Heck, you could even make a ribbed aluminium case that acts as a passive radiator.

And then working on the PC would be a PITA because you have to unseal and drain it every time... Still, a bubbly see-through case would be awesome biggrin.gif

I was just saying a clarification that the TECs are powerful enough to cool under 0c

huh ?

what are you talking about ? the pump-less liquid cooler ?

Nah, the evaporative cooling setup thumb.gif

TEC=Thermoelectric cooling.uses a peltier effect where 1 side is too hot(deppends on the tdp)and the other is cool.

The sandia cooler looks like it had promise... But being so small it doesn't look like a 2011 cooler lol
post #19 of 25
What I heard about the Sandia cooler was that it would require very precise construction to ensure that it operated efficiently, such tolerances could be an issue if the product was put in mass production. I am excited to see some graphene heatsinks and waterblocks sometime in the future.

I think RSC is coming with a big thump, if I can convince whomever responsible to try a prototype on water cooling. I assume neither metal, nor vapour chamber based designs can compete with aio water coolers at this point. Water coolers already reach down to 0.05 c/w. I think pure performance fanatics won't go overboard for a 0.25 c/w unit that has a uniqueness of its "silent" profile; eventhough 50 dBa is pretty much the current norm.
The device already is the best radiator around per weight and size, it just needs a current and updated interface material with a higher heat capacitance to be competitive in the market. Then, "best audio qualities" and best "compatibility" awards could be summated with "best all around performance".
I'm on the news!
