Ace schrijft dat hij tegen een interessant koel projectje is opgelopen, geen peltiers en water dit keer, maar vloeibare stikstof en Fluorinert ! De bedoeling is dat ze het moederbord in een bak met Fluorinert (geleid geen elektriciteit en kost $1000) zetten wat dan gekoeld moet gaan worden met vloeibare stikstof. Hoe succesvol deze manier van koelen is moet nog blijken, alleen deel 1 & 2 staat namelijk nog maar online waarin wordt uitgelegd wat de bedoeling is en hoe ze alles in elkaar hebben gezet:
As overclockers, we've already seen a lot of extreme cooling done to our beloved systems. First victim is the CPU, we take those useless stock heatsink and fan then put a bigger aftermarket heatsink combo. Not contended, we then go extreme by adding a peltier to further cool down that processor. Finally, with all that modification we delve further to the extreme by going the watercooling way. Is that it? No. Next to fall victim is your case. You put as much fans as you could, the bigger the better, then you cut your case and put blowholes wherever possible. Is that the end??? Yes.... for most. But not for me.
I've heard of a few people thinking of fully submerging their entire motherboard with all its components in some sort of non-conductive fluid. Now that is really extreme!!! Sounds crazy actually. I've only heard of 2 people doing such bizaare experiment but with the use of mineral oil and motor oil. Now I don't wanna use that. So, I had to do some research and look for a liquid medium that is totally non-conductive. Then I came across FLUORINERT™!!!
EUREKA! I have found it. Just the fluid I need. Of course I also want to supercool this liquid. Now how do I cool this liquid??? Since I have already gone extreme by thinking of fully submerging the system, why not go really, really extreme. What do I need to add in the picture to make it more intriguing for you guys? How does LIQUID NITROGEN sound??? Yes that's it! That's what I'll do...that will be my mission. A liquid nitrogen cooled fluorinert™ to fully submerge the motherboard and all its components!
