Heat pipes!!!!! - Page 3

post #21 of 53
Thread Starter 
my testing comp are gonna be freind old p3 sitting in a corner and my old p4 laptop. i also think i am gonna test on other thing that are meant to be hot like the hot plate in my hot pot. i want to make on for my comp but my frst trals are gonna be useing large and not meant to be power ful but jsut meant to see if it can be done. if that fails than i will try it a couple more times and if those fail i am gonna say screw it i am not gonna kill my self over this.
so my actual question is can i make a heatpipe that can cool something down to lets say 4 degrees below what it would be with out the pipe
my hypothesis is that it cool it down 1 to 2 degrees but that would be jsut because the copper. and after a few miutes it go boom i i will hurt myself.

There's an article on making a heatpipe which may give you some insight into a potential build technique, or at least a clue of how it's working.

Read and enjoy!

Curiously enough, I was interested in developing a rather complex watercooling,TEC,heatpipe solution for my 4x4 several months ago. The complexity, lack of resources, and general laziness prevented my further efforts.

If you're interested, here's the thread where I described my ridiculous solution.

Making your own heatpipe sounds like a fun idea.. If you had the right parts and formulas, you could prob. make one that cools a little better than a HSF..

In a less harsh way of telling you:

Unlike watercooling blocks or HSF's, making a heatpipe requires more than you could imagine.... The amount of money spent and time invested would far outway your final results.. Its just not worth it..

Think of it this way, all other companies that make heatpipes invest millions in just in R&D.. Also, with all that money and "brilliant minds" working on it, don't you think their designs are as good as it gets? If not, then maybe their designs are at least better than what you could build at home, and would cost hundreds less for you to own..

But hey, if you enjoy playing around with stuff like that just to learn how it works, then go for it.. I do stuff like that all the time.. Just don't mislead yourself into thinking you're going to make the worlds best heatpipe..

Good luck and have fun..

i guess you understand.
i did not put this down very well.
i am NOT trying to build the next best heatpipe but just want to try and make one. my main goal is not to make one that cool isanly good but just works ok.

I'd have at it then man.. I would suggest testing by using an external heat source, that would adjust to produce a steady 50-60C.. Goto your local auto parts store and get an Air condition refill kit.. That will provide you a cheap fluid to use.. Other than that you'll have to research how much fluid per size of your pipe.. Also, a wick is really used when gravity can't pull the fluid back down fast enough.. So if you aren't making loops and crazy bends, you shouldn't need a wick..

I have a HTPC that I want to build a very thin and small case for.. Problem a decent HSF limits the size.. What I need is a heatpipe setup that puts the radiator near the I/O area or towards the top of the case.... If I thought I had the skill, I would make one of my own..

Win or lose, let us know your results.. sounds fun..

Why don't you buy some heatpipes from a supplier (you think Thermaltake makes theirs?) and build your own fully copper and huge heatsink. I think that would be cooler than trying to build a heatpipe.

Yea, I agree with Mootfox, building your own would be very difficult, especially considering the level of eduction you have.

It is great and all that your school is "very sciency so we have a vacuume chamber and acess to all sorts of nasty chemicals" however if that is the phrase you are using to describe it, then you shouldn't be allowed near the lab.

They were doing server maintaineance, website was down last night.

And I also agree with Mootsfox - Heatpipes require LOTS of precision to get right
