WC without radiator ? - Page 2

post #11 of 34
If cost is the issue, consider buying a car heatercore, they work really well with a good shroud built for them. They can be had for something like 20-30 bucks and probably close to equal to triple radiators when shrouded right.

Yeah that would be the way to do it if on budget, but if your not on cost, just get a really good radiator like a PA120.3 and high cfm/low noise fans.

okok i'm hearing good ideas,

The reservator is good, i would have to come with a simple design and effective as well.

The bong idea has a problem, the water is going to evaporate sooner or later.

The boreas system is good but complicated, i never use peltier and look expensive.

The Zalman, IMO, is a bad idea from the get go.

They state it is anodized aluminum hopefully this will keep corrosion down, but as the CPU block is then cooper I wouldn't want to try it.

The correct term is an evaporative cooling tower; and yes they do work. Evaporative cooling is very commonly used in an industrial environment to cool pumps and other equipment.

The other major downsides are:
1) contaminants will enter loop
2) Noisy (sound of water raining)
3) Increase humidity (assuming indoor)
4) Performance is temperature and humidity dependent

However, evaporative (aka bong, swamp) cooling can get you sub-ambient temps.

there are other ways to cool water without using a radiator that the water flows through. just msot the other ideas seem to cost more or not work as well as just using a radiator to start with.

Yeah; but the loss of water is IMO the biggest drawback; aside from them working best in low humidity environments.

But the term "swamp cooler" isn't appropriate in this situation, since the swamp coolers are a subset of the evaporative coolers used for cooling the room air; the coolers used to cool the water (for cooling equipment etc) are the wet cooling towers.

Evaporative cooling will only get you down to near ambient wet-bulb temperatures; but with an understanding of psychrometrics and/or the psychrometric chart it's apparent that this is lower than the ambient dry-bulb temperatures (what you read on your thermometer), which is the limiting factor for a heatsink or radiator.

would it work to make a reservoir like the zalman and attach fans to the cylinder ?
