watercooling an arctic freezer?:P - Page 5

post #41 of 76
I rethought this a few days ago, might try it with my new sink, to house it 'inside' a large channel with water flowing through it to a homemade rad.

I'll MSpaint what I mean....

Horribly inefficient for watercooling, but go for it.

Should be fun.

Have fun with your galvanic corrosion using that plan.

What about doing it with the TRUE Copper?

Plus there has to be some type of additive for anti-corrosion.

If you know anything about watercooling or thermodynamics, you would know that both designs are pointless and terribly inefficient.

You have massive restriction, extra thermal layers, poor optimization of surface area, pointless heatsinks, ect. You would be better off getting a cheapo Thermaltake block.


You want to transfer the heat to the water with the least amount of restriction. The heapipe replacement adds 2 additional layers and reduces surface area by a magnitude. The waterbox method adds 4 additional layers, increases thermal resistence by increasing the distance, and reduces surface area by a magnitude.

Hmm corrosion ...

Silver coating dip, something tells me I'm getting some silver solution and a car battery.

Men were once burned at the stake for saying the earth was round. He has something here. Give him credit for thinking outside of the box. I'm sure with a redesigned block with a larger chamber for the water to absorb some heat, there could be some exciting potential here. Even without. Go for it. Be bold.

Maybe the point of this whole thing is to experiment and learn for the simple sake of fun.
