Idea for a near ambient temp passively cooled pc - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 

Phase change generally involves a compressor if I'm not mistaken to run continually and reverse the phase change the coolant went through when cooling the CPU, silent operation is the key goal of the system, if silence can't be achieved, a low flow WC setup might be the next best thing.

Here's a video I posted in the news thread where I learned about this coolant: with proper preparations the components are kept at very low temps

for silence you could put the case in another room with a hole in the wall , that is pretty epic, i would get a case for that machined out of an acrylic block or vacum formed ot look sleek and awesome

Unfortunately, the adjacent rooms are the bath room and my mom's room (I got a corner room), so the case has to be directly connected to my monitor/keyboard/mouse.

A nice normal liquid loop will do better imo...

10-15% the cost, probably more effective.

You'll prob want a few anti-vibration mounts and such but it's certainly a more feasible solution.

Also, if anything ever breaks or you want to change something, you wont be elbows deep in gunk to change it


Forget everything I have said in this thread, that is the most amazing cooling look I have ever seen!

I get better temps with closed loop liquid cooling. Makes a lot of noise though. I'd say if you're rich and want a silent PC, then go for it. My next system will either be that (if I'd be keeping it in my room) or phase shift (if I'd be keeping it in a room near to me).

Phase shift is probably the best solution for extreme overclocks. But submerged has one big advantage over all other types of cooling: it's completely dust free. A combination of all of the above maybe?
