How to chill water?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
What would be a safe and cheap way to chill the water in my loop? I don't want frigid just chilled. The best way I can think of is to submerge the radiator in bucket of chilled water, and then have some way to chill the water in the bucket. But, I don't know if this is safe for the CPU, I don't know if it will cause sweating. I also want it to look good; I want it to be permanent. Thanks for any future replies!

Can't you use fans on a radiator?

You're going to have to stack radiators to reduce the temperature without going to the next stages of intense cooling. Condensation shouldn't be much a problem but stacking radiators is your best bet. If its not for you, you can go extreme and use TEC, phase changing, or LN2.

1.) Look at aquarium coolers.
2.) Mod a dehimidifier

Condensation will depend on:
1.) The temperarture of the cooled surface(s) that are exposed to ambient air
2.) The relative humidity of the ambient air.
If you know the above two, you can calculate (or easier, read off a chart) the dew point.

I do have two fans on my radiator blowing away from it. I am rendering a comp in after effects and my CPU temps were getting near 80, I put a window fan in front of the radiator and now they are at 55, I am thinking of taking the window fan apart and using one of the fans to cool my radiator.

However, I understand that many people will say not to overclock it so high, but I feel satisfied at 4GHz and I just need a little bit more cooling to keep it stable.

you will run into sweating on your tubing because inside the case and ur room is a lot hotter than than it is in the rad.

Unless you do some heavy duty insulation on your tubing you will have problems

get 20 feet of tubing and drill some holes in your freezer run it through...just make sure you leave the pump on if you dont want it to freeze
