Water cooler maxout

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

The video where you used an external water cooler and the coolant lines where condensating heavily, I was thinking of ways to encase it and remove all the moisture. Vacume and pressure are out of the question. Then it dawned on me. Dry nitrogen... Readily available and works at room pressure.... And if automated purging is needed, thats easy.

then the nitrogen will cool down and whatever you put to contain the nitrogen will condense...


Beta!  X570 VRM + Features list (PM me if you want to help) 

 

Will prob be making an X570 "tier" list when that is completed.

Some Custom Loop Questions, please help answer them.

Not liquid nitrogen, room temperature dry nitrogen from a pressurized gas cylinder. Displaced the atmosphere with pure nitrogen.

yes. room temperture nitrogen. The fluid in the tubes will cool down the tube which will cool down the nitrogen.

But no water to condensate on the inside. So it's safe for the electronics. Therefore you can run your chilled water at tempatures well below the dew point using a compressor driven water cooler.

so the entire system is in nitrogen... suppose you want to use the safe boot button...

It would require occasional purging but this is possible however having a case that is very open air in this kind of application wouldn't work and would need to be fairly isolated with the tubing and rad running out to somewhere else. 

 

This is commonly used on industrial equipment with clean air or liquid air tanks to purge cabinets but to prevent dust ingress.

Yes, it would need to be enclosed and purged. A rad would be unneeded as the water cooler would provide all the cooling. I envision a sealed passthrough for power, monitor, and network.

You would have to make a passthrough. Its a low pressure concept so a poxy seal would suffice.

Yes, which is a benefit and harmless inside the chamber.
