Hmmm, I really don't understand what's going on there? Lol.

I guess I was mistaken, but I could of swore you were using a mesh screen (rolled into what I would call a wick I guess) in the top compartment of the cooler. Maybe I just need some sleep lol

Probably a stupid question, but why use stainless steel wool? Does it reduce temps better than something like antimicrobial cloth?

You know what would be really cool? SILVER WOOL!

It's an evaporative cooling system. In the top, hot water saturates steel wool and hen drips down, and flows into the vertical cooler where the water rains to the bottom. The whole time cool dry air flows over all the water dropplets and the steel wool, removing hot water vapor and heat from the steel wool. This makes for a radiator-less liquid cooling system that has a huge thermal capacity.

I used mesh screen on my last build. I don't have any of the stainless steel wool installed yet, as It's still being shipped, and plus I'm waiting until I do the final assembly of all the parts before I put them in.

Well It's more of a trial and error type of deal. When I used cloth, even with purified water, the cloth would still filter out the last of the impurities in the water. Basicvally using any sort of cloth becomes a huge hassle in the long run, as replacing the cloth involves rebuilding the top cooler, which would be a pita.

Thanks for the explanation. Sounds pretty cool!

Getto watercooling? From 3 radiators, no money invested because we've already haved, some tubing and old push-in connectors and a lot of Telephonic WIRE we've done that! biggrin.gif The fans are locked into the place with wire, because if we want to put screws it takes time and it was booring tongue.gif You can observe some fans grilles to eliminate the possible wires that can enter in the fans... I want to know that in the case it's not a getto install! But outside we've done all that in just 2 hours....






In the past we've had, before that, a Opel Calibra A/C Radiator, it was absolutley insane but it works....

QUESTION: If i put those 3 rads in PARALEL not in SERIES what will be the temperature gain? I mean that temperatures will drop, because now the first rad is the hot one!

I have a question for you about your Cooling tower style cooler. I build cooling systems very similar to this at work all the time ( Plumber ) and your cooling idea acts the same as a cooling tower would in a cooling system for a building. The question is do you have lots of problems with dust, or dirt getting into the system. i know in the systems we design the water that is in the cooling tower goes through a heat exchanger and cools another liquid which then is used to cool the building due to the fact that the open air cooling tower concept attracts a lot of foreign substances. Also how often do you have to add water ???
