Barometric Pressure

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
My local shop told me "I do not suggest water cooling in Alaska". I asked why? He says " the barometric pressure difference between summer & winter will blow the tubing".

Is this true or should I declare shenanigans?

I mean if barometric pressure killed water cooling in a computer imagine what it would do to cars/trucks where the cooling system is under 13-20 psi....There is virtually no pressure on the water cooling of a computer. Also you should have a reservoir of some kind that holds extra coolant, so that would basically create a vent of sorts for the changes in pressure.

There might be a truth behind it - but not enough to blow your tubing. As said you can get a reservoir if you're really paranoid.

Absolute BS; the pressure difference wouldn't have that kind of effect.

The guy could be correct, I have no idea. But I do know that winter does not instantly turn into summer and summer into winter. Thus you would have plenty of time to "relieve pressure" If there was any...

We have far worst temperature and atmospheric changes in Quebec and it's still alive
My friends with WC are good as well.
