Refrigerant-cooled PC

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Ok, Sum it up, put the thing that cools the freezer of the fridge or the AC of your car into your PC.

Of course, it'll have to be on a smaller scale. And Refrigerant isn't exactly user accessible in every state in the states, not sure about out of state though). It'll be smaller scale than the Watercooler setups, but act like a nitrogen setup theoretically.

and no, this isn't a "can you put a refrigerator in your PC" thread, this is a "is it possible to use Refrigerant as a cooling device" thread

If so, you're in for quite a ride. That stuff, when I once researched it, is kinda scary. You have some pretty powerful stuff that you're dealing with...

I'd personally stay away, but phase change is possible for cooling a computer.

like already said, thats already used, its called phase change

instead of cooling air, it cools the copper block on your cpu

ocn has an entire section dedicated to phase although the phase section is rely dead on ocn. http://www.overclock.net/phase-change/ if your going to get into phase or just want to learn more i'd have to recommend you to xs's forums. read the stickies. all the info you rely need for a first phase build. i can answer some of your questions on phase, but nol and the guru's on xs would be of much better help. also here is the phase change form on xs: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...splay.php?f=80

Freon: "They are stable nonflammable moderately toxic gases or liquids" via wikipedia

LOL, moderately toxic, like that makes it any less dangerous.

Freon, though possibly non-flammable is extremely deadly when heat turns it into vapor. One breath and you're a dead person.

You're quite wrong on that. As an auto mechanic I deal with R12 and R134a very often. I've probably inhaled boat loads of it. And I'm still able to post here.
