Lowest possible cooling temp?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Is it possible to get less than 17 degrees without crashing the OS? I have slightly modded my liquid cooling kit so I can add ice, I know it's bad for it and it will cause corrosion, but I need a new one anyway. So I have the wine glass filled with ice between the radiator and the resevoir. I have the fans on the radiator turned off because it would be blowing warm air to the ice cold pipes. I'm cooling an AMD Phenom II 1090T if that matters in any way. Below are pictures of the temp and setup.




Thanks!

Yep, and since AMD doesn't suffer from any kind of cold bug (usually) you can boot in the -150c range if you wanted to (LN2) - try dropping the radiator in a bucket of ice and watch those temps go to -25c or so

I wouldn't try it without taking some serious measures to prevent condensation...

yah the real point here would be to use bucked of ice water and actually submerge the radiator in the bucket

its not exactly perfect because you wont have any circulating current but it will still produce the desired effect
