I've Wanted this for YEARS!

Recommended Posts

22 40mm fans (including PSU) are too loud to put in the room next to your editors? Who would have guessed.


¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Kinda strange design, but after explaining what it actually is, kinda makes sense. No need to "fix" what ain't broken, it's a skunk works practically (closes comparison is the headless PUs for bitcoin mining).

 

Still, 1U is THIN.

Interesting choice of music - sounds like Terraria's OST.

I'm assuming it was Taran that edited this one.

 

Regarding the actual product, I wouldn't be able to validate the extra cost and noise of this 1u. A 2U just seems to be the way to go.

In my world you need a thick coat to actually go in to a server room because of the air conditioning so why water cooling would be a thing is beyond me :) Also in a real server hall sound volume is not a factor. If you have a few hundred servers a 1U form factor will be appreciated.

The editor is always listed at the end, 16:24 in this video, and the editor was @Aprime.

That surprises me a bit. I thought it was Taran due to his recent terraria related content.

I made a Terraria reference?

Edit: oh, yeah no.

The music included in the video sounds very similar to (If it isn't) Terraria's OST.

Nah, it's like compressed air, it'll make you deaf but it won't break anything.

There have been attempts at water cooling server gear in the past many times. The problem is stuffing blocks and tubing inside already space constrained 1U-4U chassis that has been designed for airflow and has a defined air path. You cannot always interrupt that air path with tubing runs and a giant block. The power supplies, memory and storage, installed cards etc. are also designed to be kept cool using that air path, meaning that you will still need several loud fans running even with a custom loop.

 

Assuming you do get your tubing and blocks inside, radiator size is the REAL hurdle when it comes to cooling. Radiators need lots of square area for air to move through and fans to cover. A 1U rad with a 40mm fan spinning at 3000 RPM won't cool anywhere near as well as a thick 120mm rad with just a single fan on it. So you end up moving the radiator outside your server case and mounting it directly to your rack. The problem there is orientation. Most 19 inch wide racks will only accommodate three 120mm fans across it's front. Even if you double up with two 80mm thick 360 rads with fans in push pull you are still just 17 inches inside a 36 inch deep rack and have taken up 4U of server rack - your space is completely wasted.

 

A better method would be to place 140mm rads oriented not front to back but side to side. Now a set of four 80mm thick 560's with fans in push/pull would fill out that 19 inch wide 36+ inch deep 5U rack space better. The catch is that your single tall rack will now require airflow coming in from the front AND side with airflow coming out the back and the other side. Some installations can do it, but the majority of rack setups can't.

 

You could also place the radiators behind the rack and do longer tubing runs but that would require deeper space and add mounting complexity. Also, if you end up with a whole wall of radiators, moving that heat out will require significant rework of your exhaust. The benefits to having a cooler and quieter system and getting it overclocked are tough to go by when air-cooled is far simpler and the noise can be mitigated.

So where do I get that cooling system??? I am thinking water cooled mini-itx in a custom case that is less than 2 inches (50mm) tall, allowing me to design a serious gaming laptop for cheap.
