Dropped about 30C with this 1 - Page 2

post #11 of 40
Thread Starter 
and reason i posted this is because some of these experiments are crazy and i dont understand why people dont do something as simple as getting a big ass fan and opening the case, when i open the case the computer immediately starts to cool with or without the fan.

Would a mini refrigerator really work? I have a feeling it'd just block airflow...

Who needs airflow when it's already like 40F in there?

no it wouldnt its been answered quite a few times, refrigerators motors or wtver arent meant to run all the time so it would just ruin the refrigerator, since your pc constantly is warming the refrigerator wouldnt keep up

It's not so bad. You just have to replace the compressor every few months.

Condensation. You don't drain water from a fridge do you now? AC does it on their own.

I was never really clear on condensation, do you mean that the computer parts would "sweat"?

oh and tai, hows that graphic card treating you? Im debating on buying the same one, i might just wait it out until crysis for the price drops... what do you think? cause i have a 7600gt which runs current games at pretty good fps just pretty much not oblivion or stalker but just about everything else i threw at it

and considering some people use refrigerators and mineral oil, and make all these crazy experiments what the hell is the definition of practical to some people i dunno, but this would seem easier then half of these experiments lol
$30 gets you a 120mm 72cfm fan from silenx at microcenter.
that 18 for 50000000000cfm is nothing.
