[DvHW] ThermalRight HSC-101 - new case for passive cooling - Page 5

post #41 of 46
I find that case to be about as attractive as this:




And the Zalman case failed. It was overly expensive and had about 50 pounds worth of heat pipes. They got rid of the big one. Now they just have a Micro ATX.

In theory it makes sense... a case gives you a larger area to disapate heat than a HSF. The problem is finding a way to take the heat from the local hot spot and distribute it evenly throughout the case.
The Zalman unit did use heatpipes - the CPU had something like 10 heatpipes going to various parts of the cases, and the GPU had a similar number. However, the problem is the heat dump and the inefficiency of passive cooling.

Let me tell you a good mod I learned in Romania. Get your case, open one window, get a desk fan (roughly 20" in diameter), put it on low speed facing the inside of the tower and power on. Results: say 15-20°C difference in summer time vs the closed case.

Also about the heat-pipes; I've seen an article recently on Xbitlabs and those guys have dismantled (aka cut) a couple of heatpipe coolers to see if there is any fluid inside, or if they are only marketing scams. With sadness I ave to tell you that not one had anything inside, so the heatpipe principle as duckie presented it works and is correct, with the condition that there actually is a fluid in the interior.

Space heater? The fact that the case or any other fan dissipates the heat doesn't change at all the amount of heat needed to be exhausted. The idea would be that you no longer need case fans with this design, because the heat will exit thru the walls of the case and not thru holes with forced air circulation.

Mu 2 cents.

Didn't know that... thanks for the info. Passive cooling is certainly less efficient... but not impossible

That is one gaudy and ugly looking case. Christ the T.R.U.E looks ****ing metal, how have they managed to make that case look like a dime store POS.

That's the same principe as having a massive fan on your side panel and is hardly uncommon knowledge...

That's because the liquid evaporates I thought?
