View Full Version : INSANE conept for future ROG desktops cooling system

11-26-2013, 12:55 PM
Hello guys. First let me say Im a big fan of the asus products, especially the ROG series ones. So I would like to bring to your atention a conept that has been around for a while but no company has implemented it for commercial use for the masses so I would like to see ASUS ROG be the one who establishes a first here. The thing that I am talking about is pc freon cooling. I know there are some drawbacks to this like increased weight and increased price because of the large quantity of copper used and some new engineering challenges BUT this could be acceptable for some of the ROG overclocking enthuziasts. Here is a video of a home made system illustrating the concept.
Im sure it can be made better but this is just to show the potential, especially for GPU cooling.
Please let me know what you think and if you will consider implementing this in future ROG desktop releases.

This is a tpical DIY homemade cooling solution. Its a mini-fridge and nothing exotic. Check phase change coolers, its something very close in "philosophy"

Welcome whitebety to the ROG Forum!

Yeah, as Sola is saying, that type of cooling has been around for a while, it isn't a new concept... in fact it has been more developed and safer to use with the kits like Little Devil is offering...

Been doing that for about 15 years now.

Hmm yeah, it has to be said...this concept has been keeping yoghurt cold since 1748

OK CPUs a little later but heck, there's even DIY manuals out there http://www.overclockers.com/build-your-own-phase-change-pc-cooling-system/

But hey if you've just discovered it all good! That's what its all about...and ROG is a good place to learn 50 new things a day....:-)

Some time ago I was considering of getting Phase Change. But honestly, it's not enough for real hardcore benching since the lowest temp you can achieve is like -40C.

Technically you can chain few phase change compressors to build cascade. If filled with proper gas, you can get below -100C, but it would be very hard and expensive to build and would be a very massive thing.

Hey Sola, haven't heard from you for a while, how are you, my friend?
