  • Just use a car fan as well at this point lol, you can use a push/pull dual fan setup as well

  • i'd like to see this done with some better adaptation of the radiator so it isn't pouring water everywhere. i bet this would work pretty well honestly.

  • With a radiator that big, ditch the case fans and just strap it to a box fan. Maybe use a piece or two of window bug screen as an air filter.

  • Yeah, the transmission cooler works by exchanging heat from the hotter oil into the relatively cooler water, so you're wasting your time there.

    AlexAlex3 päivää sitten
  • Once inspired by a younger Alex and Linus, I made a mineral-oil PC. at the time I was a tech for a car dealership, and radiators were easy enough to get ahold of. With some proper connections, I was able to make one into a cooler for the oil. 3 small things done differently, and this radiator build would have been even more successful, but probably not as funny. Love the "Mad Scientist" videos, always a treat and an inspiration.

  • You should try to water cool a pc with out fans by hooking up The reservoir to a running tap and dumping The water after The heat block into The drain!

  • I actually did this in 2014. It worked. The tower reached up to the ceeling. I needed to disassemble it and rebuild it because we moved. The radiator(audi tt) is still cooling my cpu and graphics card( ryzen 7 1700x and 1080ti.) Temps under full load are under 70 celsius for both. And you only need two 230mm fans for airflow. I use 2 laing ddc pumps and copper piping

  • You guys weren't even trying this time. I kept thinking you were about to get your shit together and fix the leaks, but a solution and a proper test never materialized. And while the frame setup was a great idea, it had no reason to be on top of a case like that, and you could've taken it down at any time. I wanna see you revisit this and do it justice. I love your videos Linus, and I think you'd appreciate the honesty.
