post #11 of 23
lol I agree but unfortunatly I only have my phone to take it and it is screwed into the case so i cant really be bothered to remove it just for a pic, sry.................. it really isnt rocket science though get a f00kin huge heatsink stick a fan on it and remove the covers for the floppy drives for a larger air intake

what if you would remove the compressor and build a custom box and then have a few fans blowing the cold air into the case or pipes to conect the heatsink?

This might be kind of off topic. There is a case that has air conditioning. When I read this article, it reminded of the magazine article I read. The price is kinda steep, $360. It Also says the case is somewhat loud. Here is some more info.

A freezer wouldn`t work either. Ultimately, it would get any non heat producing item at the desired temps, but would be ineffective at any other application. Actually, the compressor would run a little more, but it would still cycle. The heat in a proc. chip just couldn`t be removed fast enough to comply with the rate of heat exchange needed for the chip to operate safely.

Somebody want to make an FAQ and put it on the front page that says "IF YOU HAVE MINIFRIDGE IDEAS THAT INTERACT WITH A COMPUTER FORGET THEM, YOU WILL FRY YOUR COMPUTER BECAUSE OF CONDENSATION!"

A good idea to try would be to put it in a Freezer box of the Fridge, that may really keep it cool... I dunno just a thought,

A dehumidifier would take care of the possibility of condensation upon shutoff.

An AC is basically a dehumidifier + chiller. So let the dehimidifier run w/o chiller until temps = room temps = no condensation.

Someone build a mini-unit that fits into a 5 1/2 in drive and lowers temps 10C or more and you got a product.


Let's face it Thermaltake, Zalman and all these other companies have better cooling solutions on the board.


They are just in business. Business is to sell you a little at a time.


Why come out with great cooling now? Sell people more products over time and eventually arrive at great cooling. You make more $$ that way.


Sell you the greatest CPU cooler ever made now or sell you 10 revisions to make it down to the best cooler ever made over 10 years. Which way makes them more $$?


Companies are in business to make money so don't be in business to spend it.
