can chiller as cpu cooler? - Page 3

post #21 of 25
GAHHHH!!!! So many people just don't get what heat is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!

Right, canned beverage is producing no heat. It is not producing any heat. Therefore the TEC can cool at it's own pace (In Thermodynamics, this is known as Q.out, the rate at which heat is being removed from the system, which in this case is the can)

In a CPU however, the system is essentially a heating element producing heat at a given rate. Most Dual core CPU's produce around 80Watts of Heat. This means that the TEC must be able to remove at least 80 Watts of heat! This is assuming the TEC is 100% Efficient, which it is not! (Infact TEC's are GROSSLY inefficient - thats why for example ira-k is using a 320W TEC to cool a 50W TDP@Stock CPU) So in the end you need a very beefy TEC and hefty power supply to power the TEC. YOu also need to be able to remove the heat the CPU is producing PLUS the heat the TEC is producing. So you really need a very good water cooling loop to cool the hot side of the TEC.

Oh and there is also a difference between TEMPERATURE (In degrees C or Farenheit) and HEAT TRANSFER (In Joules or Watts if it is a rate)

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Always bear this in mind when answering threads like this. It is not sufficient enought simply say that a CPU runs at a certain temperature which is hotter than a can at room temperature. This is not why the TEC cooler will not work. Take the HSF off of a CPU and the temperature rises. Why? because a CPU is PRODUCING HEAT. A Can is not. THAT is why this TEC will not cope.

gah. GAH. GAHHH!!!!

GAAHHHH!!!!!

(What he said)

There is absolutely no chance this will work. Once again "THE CPU IS PRODUCING HEAT". The can is not. It doesn't take much to cool an aluminum can with twelve ounces of pop in it.

So once again, NO it will not cool your CPU effectively. Not even close.

it uses a tec plate to cool. i imagine it is a fairly weak one and so i sudjest that you get one of the fairly cheap ones off of ebay. i have a slot 1 heat sink that has a tec plate built in
