PC in a Freezer in a oil bath. - Page 4

post #31 of 44
Thread Starter 
Ok ima go through with this now. Every one sees pc + fridge and they jump to the conclusion that I’m just sticking a pc in a fridge. Well im not. Computers in oil have already been proven to work (even though everyone said it wouldn’t). I’m going to take a compressor off a A/C and put it on a fridge shell that has been separated into two parts. The top part (the freezer section) will have radiators with the oil running through it. The bottom will have the oil tub and pc in it. This way the freezer section will have direct cooling on the radiators and the bottom will be just chilled. I’m getting all the parts tomorrow.

Excellent coolaide. Rebel against common thought. :swearing:
Seriously, I think this might actually work.

I wonder if Mineral Oil can transfer heat better than water. Not to sure, but I like your idea if I'm geting it right.

Heres a theorectical question which may be troll candy, but here goes:

What if you used a bar mini fridge to host the water cooling radiator unit instead? You'd only have to drill holes for the 2 tubes to come in and out of the fridge. You could put everything on the loop including all chipsets, and ram (using WC RAM mounts) and opt out of oil and fans altogether. If you joined Sata/molex pairings to the ambilicus you could put your hard drives in it also. This would make the rig silent and generate virtually no heat.

My first thought was to suggest putting the radiator in a freezer and use antifreeze in the loop but god knows what the long term effects might be.

Ok, submersing a pc in oil can work. Submersing a pc in oil in a freezer cannot. Ever.

Say he's using 10kg mineral oil to submerse his pc in. That's 16700J to heat the oil by 1 degree celsius.

Every second, his pc will be pumping around (at full load) (if he has a quad core and a reasonable graphics card) 400W into the oil. That means that the oil will rise 1 degree every 0.75 minutes or so.

In half an hour, the oil will have risen 40 degrees. Every component, in fact, will have risen in temperature by 40 degrees. Unless the cooling system can withstand it, it will continue to rise.

We can say that our fridge uses 50W to cool it down. That means that the amount of power being produced by your fridge is 8 times less than your computer. This means that in half an hour your temperature will have risen by 35 degress. in an hour it will have risen by 70 degrees.

That means that, from a start at 0C, you will have, in a single hour, made every component in your system hit 70C. Do you want to know how fast, based on the same calculations, it will take to cool down? 8 hours.

This sounds like a ridiculous amount of effort for very little effect.

I don't think you've calculated this right. Otherwise, the Puget system wouldn't have run for a year.
