Dear Linus Tech Tips... I don't envy you the ridiculous things you have to deal with, but I have a feeling your boss(es) must know how incredibly lucky they are to have you on their team. Anyway, a huge thank you from those of us who know just enough about computers to have ourselves a lot of...stressful, sometimes destructive moments. ;-) We appreciate your patience and savvy. Cheers.

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..

I think the radiator need to stand vertical on the side so that one pipe will fill with condensated liquid and the other will not.

Cool concept but boiling point for water is too close to Tjunction, perhaps consider Acetone which boils at ~60c? Do also look into thermal conductivity of other liquids and you might actually be onto something here
GoldenBrew3
GoldenBrew3 - 12 days ago
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...

The problem with arguing that water cooling is silent is that it still requires air cooling (fans) to dissipate the heat from the radiator. I still think that the Dark Rock Pro series or Noctua's NH-D15 is the proper solution to high end cpu cooling. Pretty darn silent, great temps, and low maintenance. Air cooling is still the sensible choice for the average user. Unless you consider water cooling a hobby in itself that you find enjoyment in, the cost-benefit analysis is more favorable towards air coolers.
neojack333
neojack333 - 15 days ago
very true. but watercooling helps whe you have a lot of high end parts, that you want to OC, in (relative) silence. custom watercooling is an art, if you do wrong it could be worse than aircooling. but done right, it's thrilling to have your PC at full charge (CPU + multi GPU), and no more noise than at idle. No aircooling solution can do this but yea it's very niche.

you should also put the fans sideways so the thick tube entry is a the top. This will minimum back flow from the top pipe

So wouldn't you want the radiator sideways so the pressure from the water forces it in one direction. Then the hot water will travel to the top and cooler water to bottom. Then cooler water would prevent hot from going through both? I could be wrong I'm no expert.

Compared to my old PC I have a watercooling pump from Corsair (H100x) and even while playing heavily it's around 65°C and barely makes any noise.

Remove the fans from the radiator and watercool it.

you should have a pump-les setup.. if i'm not missing something...

Worth a try (on a Pentium 4 or something similarly worthless and hot), but i have minor doubts that you can get to 80-100°C core temperature with a fluid with a boiling point around 80°C, due to Intel's propensity to use Mozzarella for thermal interface.

Its basically a txv for a refrgeration unit. It probably has refrigerant and a disc valve in it. The refrigerant turns to gas creating pressure to either open or close the disc. Depending on build and or type of refrgerant

I strongly suspect the the unit is sealed to keep atmospheric pressure out, not to keep fluids in. Water at Mean Sea Level will boil at 212° Fahrenheit or 100° centigrade. If you go higher in altitude, the altitude results in lower air pressure. This allows the fluid in water to more readily turn into its gaseous state. This is where this system becomes ingenious.
It takes a great deal of energy to change a fluid from its liquid form to its gaseous form. A lot of energy is lost when a gaseous fluid turns into its liquid form. If you can cause water to evaporate (boil) at a lower temperature, i.e., < 100°C, (that's Alt-0176 for those who want to know how I got the "°" symbol. Look up ANSI codes.) then you can cause the water's natural tendency to evaporate and condense to happen at lower temperatures. Evaporated water will carry heat up and away from its source of heat, and the radiator (or condenser, in this application) will do its job and allow the ambient air to carry away the energy the gas is bringing into it. Once enough energy is lost, it will again condense into a liquid and flow back down to the cooler. If you notice, the cooler block has two different size openings. My couch engineering isn't such that I can be 100% sure about this, but I think the wider opening facilitates gas flow away from the CPU, and the narrower opening is better suited for the liquid to flow in.
Essentially, I'm just going over Air Conditioning Systems 101. I'm studying for my Airframe license to finish my A&P so I can work on airplanes. Someone else likely knows this subject better than I do. All I really need to know is whether or not there are bubbles in the sight glass to work on A/C systems on Aircraft. Still, I hope this explanation is mostly accurate, and that it helps someone know what's going on.
I doubt I'm the first person to bring this up, but I did want to mention is.
Just finished watching the video. Speculations on my part:
Its atmospheres aren't reduced. That's about 14.7 psi in there.
They're using water.
Water boils at 100°C, and that's about how hot the cores got.
I think if they had a way to keep the atmospheric pressure out, it would work far better and they could still use water.
Rigid tubing would make the process much easier. This would make the system not as good for non-custom loops. I see why it has been 3 years without a product yet. Freon might help. I don't know enough about Freon to know if it flows fine without a pump. Chances are it does, but I'm not the one to ask. This would be easier to work around if all manufacturers involved standardized radiator, CPU, and GPU placements. This would be better for an environment where one kind of computer needed mass production, or for someone who had the tools and the technical skill to fabricate their own fluid lines. Once the lines are fabricated and properly crimped, all one would need to do is evacuate some of the pressure out of the system and water should be just fine. On paper, you could keep all components at whatever temperature you wanted. Again, my education only goes so high as to make me a mechanic or a technician, not an engineer.

World Theory
World Theory - 21 day ago
What I would consider doing, is adding a tesla valve to one of the tubes, and increasing the diameter of the tubes, as well as searching for a tube design that specializes in low friction of fluids. The tesla valve is an invention of Nikola Tesla… It's a one way differential pressure valve, which causes them to encounter high resistance when trying to travel in one direction versus the other, and it has no moving parts, so it's perfect for a clean, closed-loop system like this. The suggestion to increase the diameter of the tubes that move the fluid from the CPU block to the radiator, is because larger tubes generally = less resistance. (Probably something to do with the boundary effect.) But I suppose it won't help up to a certain diameter, because reasons.

Large tube on top to carry the vapor, smaller tube on bottom to carry the liquid return. Gases have a higher specific volume than liquids. Also need the vapor return line to be on the top side of the radiator so that the liquid return can be more easily gravity fed.
This is a common type of set up for steam condensing systems or other industrial applications. Especially for refrigerant cooling applications on large scales where the efficiency vs capital cost makes sense.

Put coolant in there. They're radiators, right? Not for a car, but ones for motorcycles.
(Edit: You can use a larger rad to get more surface area, yet the entry and exit points at the radiator must be on opposite sides to better allow the cooling.)
