Hi. I am new for here and I do not speak well English (I'm Portuguese)... I have a doubt. They find that it would have some problem if I used liquid nitrogen (NO2) in a system of water cooling (so that it did not evaporate)? If yes, which is the system that advises to me?

I have seen some marks as the Thermaltake or Zalman, among others, and wanted to know which best, or then a good choice of one marks where I can put to water cooling in socket of the GPU and the ChipSet beyond the CPU, and which the best project to place bombs, radiators...

Thanks

Welcome to the Forum. Watercooling is your best bet. NO2 is very expensive and is not very efficent, not to mention being very hard to set up. You are better ordering separate parts and building the watercooling system yourself. Those other pre built systems usually are no better than a good fan and copper heatsink.

because no2 boils at room temperature, not to mention computer temperatures, it will explode your tubing, and cause a leak, i wouldnt be worried about the leak, as no2 is dielectric, but your computer would over heat

so steam given off, which increases air pressure in the water cooling system, would equal pressurized lines, and because your system is sealed, the cooling would explode

if u dont trust me, put some water in a 2 liter bottle, then put that bottle in hot water, the inside should give off steam, wear goggles, and watch, the cap should pop off.

But I thought that the NO2 drastically cooled the temperature of the CPU... Which the best combination of parts that advise to me? At this moment, to cool my CPU use cooler Pipe101 of the Thermaltake (http://www.thermaltake.com/coolers/c...01/pipe101.htm), with DuctingMod (http://www.thermaltake.com/accessories/DuctingMod.htm) and fan of the Thermaltake (http://www.thermaltake.com/images/po...lowerView2.jpg).

I have my CPU (Celeron 2,4) 23º~24º load. I do not make overclocking but I am to think about making. Had to this it wanted to know which is a good system of watercooling.

Thanks

liduqid nitro is -300F therefore if you put that in the computer the computer is 300F plus ambient temp hotter than the pc if you do you can try to put liduid nitro but then you need to some how release the pressure that it will build up and your tubings need to be metal and not plastic

are you good with metals??

if so make a crazy heatpipe....

use mercury in some copper pipes sealed off
mount your mobo so that the pipe is verticle
add some finns to the heatpipes mount a very fast fan on it
this would be the best heatpipe and it be most bang for your buck

do you NEED liquid nitrogen?

What are you trying to do with your system exactly?

People are takine 3.2's to 4ghz on air... And 4.5-5ghz with a chilled water setup pretty easily...

Why nitrogen?
Are you watning to push a 1ghz to 3ghz? Or a 3 to 6ghz? Or somthin insain?

Post what specs you have, and how far you'd like to push it, and im sure the guys here could point you in the proper direction


I recomend a basic water cooling setup, order peice by peice, get ah eater core, pump, tubing, water blocks, and a 5,200 btu AC unit if you wanna overclock pretty far..

NO2 is Nitrogen Dioxide, very poisonous and corrosive, not a good thing to use.

N2 or Nitrogen on the other hand would only be useful in overclocking drag races, where you lay your motherboard down on a flat insulated surface, make a styrofoam cup mold to the surface of your processor, and have the liquid nitrogen sit inside the cup until it eventually all evaporates.

Not a good long term cooling solution.

I think what we are trying to consider is in fact N2O, nitrous oxide...easily available and not poisonous yet can cool (hence the automotive application), yes?. As Zokus said, I think Lord_Snake just needs a good recommendation for a home brewed H20 cooling system. I know there are a couple of shoppping lists already out there in other threads but I don't know jack about them so I am not about to cut/paste them here. I will let one of the H20 professionals do that.

Lord_Snake, as you begin to OC, your temperatures will increase. The better the cooling the more you can OC. If you only want to do little OC, try it with the Thermaltake you have and see how it goes. I have P4 2.40 with cooling not as good as you and I am 2.85 with 47 degrees at load. If you want more then go to water.

Did you read what i posted?

Heatpipe....
As in no pump connected ROFL
Rubber gloves anyone.....

Oh Cmon mercury isn't that bad, just dont get it on you, or inhale it.

Sure is fun though, letting it roll around on the table...
Funny how such a small mass can be so heavy

thought u were talking about a whole mercury liquid cooling system rofl.. someone else suggested that a while back...

mercury molecules would definately be to heavy for any pump i think....
plus mercury is extremly conductive but maybe a valved pump would work
such as a car engine you know...

it would suck in the mercury
close that intake valve
open exhaust valve
and blow the mercury out

would most definately work...
up to the point of cavitation

but im not going to try and push all this engineering stuf on you guys...

you might come back and say it wont work

I used to breakthermometers as a kid and play with the funny little balls of metal. I wonder if thats the cause of my problems. HE HE HE ...Ummm.

Dude I was about to say the same thing! When I was little I remember playing with a couple drops of mercury and making them fuse together like the T1000 from Terminator 2 LOL.

Not wishing to insult your system in any way, BUT Liquid Nitrogen to cool a Celeron?


If you open the flap on the floppy drive and prop it open with a piece of paper in the corner. There should be enough air pass through the gap in the floppy to sufficiently cool that CPU.

Dont buy a new cooling system, use the money to get a new CPU.
