    the better would be to put the pump on the side to create a circular flow and align the heat sink so it doesn't disturb the flow

    Yeah this looks pretty janky for pro hardware, And i dont see the point of this huge thing. EKWB there industrial water solutions will probably just fit in a case and not be a hassle. And if you have to mod your case, it should not be on the support list.

    Talking about an absolute fail in electrical safety. Didn't use any electrical gloves doubt they used a GFI even. They didn't even have the sense to power of and unplug when moving the PC around. Not a video you want your insurance company viewing.

    This is GLORIOUS! The only problem is that most cases for some inane reason barely have enough space on the back side for wire management let alone a massive cpu heat sync. I really wish case designers added another inch of width for wire management.

    You're 15 years late to the trend. People were already doing liquid nitrogen heatsink cooling back then.

    refrigerant and air conditioning compressor would perform wonders with cooling. Imagine the overclocking capabilities.

  • Red X

    What if you were to create a cuboid case around the computer, completely filled with water? Run the heatsink for the CPU/GPU to the bottom, and the hotter water will naturally flow to the top, circulating the water passively. Plus, zero chance for dust.

    Ummm... I think maybe someone needs to do some testing (again) on the effects of EM on cognitive function. Between the 3 favorite tech channels (my favorites anyway), Steve at GN seems to be the least drawn to insane tech solutions and experiments, although that might be due to the hair. Linus and Jay (jayztwocents) seem more prone to extreme case mods and an unnatural fascination with water and ice with regards to PC play. Seriously, cool board and fun experiment... uh oh, crazy idea... Aquariums need water heaters to regulate temps for the fish (fresh water tropicals anyway)... a glass cutter, some silicon sealant... ok, crazy ideas are spreading... time for my own check-up. Cya... 🤣

    Does any company make a heat sink in which a pump carry water in zig-zag pattern in a copper pipe with aluminium fins while being cooled by a fan... you know the kind of zigzag copper pipes we see in refrigerators and ACs... P.S. I know how other coolers works so please don't reply with "do you even know... have you ever heard of "

    i would have liked to see what difference just tilting the case back 90° would have made, it would have oriented the fins in a way that would allow some natural air convection.

    if you could somehow invert that you will have far better cooling as heat rises. What y'all are doing is relying on leaching.. Have the PC on bottom and seal the cooling chamber above it and put the motor back in. It will drastically reduce the heat dissipation.

    aren't you loosing lots of performance of the heat pipes by having them upside down? Also unless you remove heat from the water it will slowly warm up loosing performance.

    If you had added salt you would have rapidly cooled that cpu. salt and ice used to be the way to make ice cream.
