    Using different size pipes to supplement pressures to aid movement along with a heating element pre radiator should work so it doesn't need to use heat from the CPU because by then it would be too late. It will take more wattage for the heating element like a glow plug but it would be quite. Also add a flow and temp sensor to regulate the heating element.

    Pretty sure that one of the pipes need to be higher up than the other (on the radiator). At least if car radiators have taught me anything.

    Surely orientation for this kind of thing is key. The convection current needs to be gravity assisted. In the same way a central heating system or water heater would work?
    The cold feed into the block needs to physically be below the hot outlet and then the reverse for the radiator, hot feed into the top then cold coming out of the bottom? That way the convection current flows with the force of gravity providing assistance?

    I think it is supposed to work like the bubble-pump in a coffee-maker. There are stem bubbles forming that float up pushing the liquid as it expands. That's why it should be mounted vertically with the large pipe up, liquid+steam takes more space than just liquid.

    There aren't very many fluids that will go from a gas to a liquid around ambient temperature. It is definitely something of a low boiling point kept under pressure or a high boiling point kept in a vacuum. As to what it is I do not know. Possibly methanol put under a few hg of vacuum. It naturally has a boiling point around 64c and a vacuum would lower that substantially. That would explain not using typical plastics or rubber seals. It does not however transfer heat so well so it would have to stay quite cool to do the job which further supports it being under vacuum.

    You have both pipes at the same level. The intake side should sit lower than the hot side. Since heat rises yada yada yada, once cooled by the radiator it should go through the cold side and come up from the bottom.

  • Xiao Mi

    Im pretty sure without a valve on one end of the tubes, the coolant in both tubes will only be moving one direction - away from the block as it heats up. And without sufficient coolant in the loop, with the presence of air pockets, full convection cannot take place effectively to cycle the coolant through the furthest end of the cooling block to really bring the temperature of the coolant down. In summary, add a valve, fill up the loop with more coolant and no air pocket. The heated coolant from the block will create enough pressure to cycle through all the chambers of the cooling block as the valve on the other end only allow the 'cool' coolant to return. Vola!

  • Blanket Bearer

    Water shouldn't be flowing out from both sides of the block. I would have imagined that thing has a check valve inside of it before watching the video. It works by keeping liquid, in this case coolant, flowing in one direction only. A check valve is the liquid equivalent of a diode, for anybody not familiar with them.

    That explaination on the straw filling with water was definately wrong.
    It does not matter if it was water, apple juice, pee or any other fluid because it has nothing to do with the surface tension at all. It is all about the hydrostatic pressure. What that means is that fluids try to keep a level through out their entire used space. Thats how most of the toilets all around the planet work. So basically you have water outside of the straw and inside of it. While both spaces are not fully seperated the reservoir with the higher level (initially the outside of the straw) pushes down to keep up the level with the strawer, but since water (like any other fluid) can be compressed (#physicsisgreat) the inner reservoir takes the pressure of the outer one and gets lifted. So both levels come to a tie
    This picture clearifies things a little bit. That is the U-Tube (no, definately no Pun here) Manometer visualized
    So it basically is about the level difference and the density of the fluid. No matter of surface tension

    EDIT: Still great video as always xD

    ahh try adding 2 or more radiators and see if it does something to reduce the temp even further... however it wouldn't be a standard tower case that you can mount the cooling setup into..
    at this stage an oil with a high boiling point may be the only liquid option that could be used
    however if you were 100-1,000 proof alcohol route for cooling you likely need to get it 5 to-5c making the solution pointless to consider the option..
    at this stage the only 2 oils I would use if attempting to use a radiator type cooling setup that would be rice or olive oil or similar consistency..

    • Jason howe
      Jason howe Mês atrás

      @Mike Hersee It make more sense having the psu in the top part of the case unless you require a 2 psu option.. depending on the gpu option you want to use..

      you would pretty much need a different case and layout if you wan to suck cooling in from the bottom..
      however I still have to ask being a workstation class platform i have to wonder why isn't there 2 psu's in the chassis as you would likely 1 psu for the the mobo and drives and 1 for the gpu setup ..

    • Jason howe
      Jason howe Mês atrás

      @Mike Hersee in my situation it is best to sit the pc on a concrete floor and suck cool air through the bottom of the case and vent out the top...
      My original comment was more directed at cooling aspects of the system as setup you would likely be needing to mount 2-3 cases together to mount the excess coolers into I would hazard a guess that the cooler setup was not adequate for use if you were trying to cool the system down past operating temps as I doubt it would cool tthe liquid enough dissipate the adequate enough for cooling the cpu or anything within the cooling loop..
      I have no clue what the average temp in north america as a whole is however I suspect you will likely need to operate this in a constant room temp south of 25-18c for adequate cooling requirements..
      if you are in a room north of 32c you will not have adequate cooling

    • Mike Hersee
      Mike Hersee Mês atrás

      @Jason howe An ambient temperature of 35 degrees C??? That's a tough environment!. Evaporative cooling there could be a challenge as it would be more difficult to get the damn fluid to condense again

    • Jason howe
      Jason howe Mês atrás

      @Mike Hersee i understood what he meant even if poorly explained how ever you will still need to cool the liquid down to a point and sadly you would likely 2 or more radiators to cool it to the point the liquid is cooled enough not to cause throttling of the cpu.. and anything else within use in the cooling system
      living in a country that oftenly doesn't see an ambient temp below 35c in summer and can average the same temp days on end all year round..
      cycling hotwater can become corrosive even in gas form because you are still boiling the water with impurities and whatever chemical imbalance there is would cause more more damage..
      unless you have the capacity to drop the the temp from 60-85c to 2-10c and keep cycling the water no chance in hell you are drop the heat to the point you don't start cooking thing..
      you will likely be needing a cooling solution that would not likely fit within that chassis to the point you could drop the cooling down to a point it would below 22c..

  • GoldenBrew3

    Low enough pressure for faster boil, correct mix for lower boil temp, but what they are missing is a long enough tube to allow the liquid to air cool without a fan. Think of a massive copper or even silver curly straw. (silver allows better heat transfer then copper) The Liquid would boil up then at it's apex form of vapor begin it's downward water slide to cool off. I would add in a larger reservoir before the two tubes with the fat tube leaving straight up and the smaller tube entering from the bottom instead them both entering/leaving sideways. It would be a massive water cooler, BUT silent with no moving parts

    I don't think that the pipes in the radiator should have been at the same level, if the radiator was on it's side so that one pipe was higher then you might have had better circulation... probably best also if the pipes where connected diagonally... still not efficient enough but this might have increased the efficiency significantly...
