Insane or genius?

This is my prototype, i will strip it down, and rebuild the chiller, this was only a test. and it works super..

The tape is not looking good, but in will be gone in next week..

The polar pipe chill 2 pcs 240 rads...

Hmm, tubing, hmm. yes this is my new build, new fittings on its way, and some other bling stuff..

i went for dual loop, with 1 balancer.. Turned out better than my discontinued Headshot

So. please, the computer is not complete....

data> 1 pcs radeon 7950, with low flow pump, at 1340mhz, is around 31c max load

Still isn't chilly enough, for my taste.. bit in now there will be -25c outside..

My water/color.. its glycol/water

typical me, cant complete a build, before i need to benchmark..

3 pcs 240 rads in this build..

its a tight seal pipe/rad..... No freeloading inside air..

water expand/contract.. So having that lite valve on top of the balancer, not fully tighten..

just throw the pipe through the window, and chill.. lazy, and great..

That's really cool! :cool: When outside will reach -25C and that air is blowing on your rads... - what are you gonna do about condensation? It may form along the tubings and on the waterblocks... or you will keep open the window to balance the room temp?

Yes zygo..

Its real simple.. and the price is close to nothing..

Zka..

My pipe is 6 meter, after 3 m, i have a (125mm duct fan), to help push the air..

condesation....I have taken that into my calc.. and i have much experience from this kind of setup's..

No prob......

The pipe is not taped 2 the rad.. I have brackets, and 4 screws.. It look tacky now, i know..

No, on the other side of that blue styrofoam is the great outdoors. At this time of year where I live -10' to -20' C not uncommon. I am in eastern Canada.

I put gentle typhoons in my rads and they just draw wicked amounts of air through.

Snow, snow and more snow, love it....

Hooked up pipes for a few mins last nite, cpu core temps drop so fast it freaks me out a little bit. I went from mid 30's to low teens and single digits in less time then it takes to boil the water in the kettle.

Thanks guys. I was watching listening for anything abnormal.

My biggest concern was my gpu's. I think I will put a nice big fan on them as well next time I hook up to the pipes. They just felt so cold I was concerned about condensation somewhere I would not be able to see it happening. Gpu's got down to 8' C before running 3d mark11. Under load they hotted up to a massive 20-22' C. That was at 1319 core, seems to be my max on these cards.

yes, use a fan, . Condensation..

Can't wait for winter here in the South in a few months when night-time hits 8degC or lower. Gonna open up my G55 laptop as much as possible, put on my winter gear, and benchmark out under the stars... LOL.
