Radiator in the freezer!

post #1 of 59
Thread Starter 
This is probably a stupied question, but has any one ever put their radiator in the freezer?

I figured flowing water doesn't freeze (think steams in -10 conditions!) so if you had a nice big radiator with larg tubing and you put it in the freezer surely you'd get lovely cold 1 or 2 degree water gping straight to your cpu allowing a monster overclock?

Any one done it?

You'd have to worry about condensation, brittle tubing, and possible frozen coolant. The tubes in the rad are so small I bet the liquid would freeze even though it is moving.

Freezers and refridgerators are meant to keep cold things cold and not hot things cold. The compressor will break becuase its not meant to run 24/7. If your looking to go below ambient you can go with phase change cooling which is rated to run 24/7.

There should be a sticky at the top that says "No, you can't cool your computer with a refrigerator/freezer."

I dont think your parents will notice the holes cut in the freezer for the coolant lines.
