Computer heating room upwards of 3-5 degrees (room is currently 79 degrees F)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a AMD Ryzen Threadripper setup with a  EVGA RTX 2080 Super XC Ultra, Overclocked, running almost 24/7 computing various simulations. Problem is though that it heats up the entire first floor significantly. (Fans are all pointed correctly the set up (at least CPU) is watercooled). Any cooling tips?

Revert the overclocks and/or undervolt.

already tried that and didn't seem to help to much.

I only overclock if I decide to game, which to be honest I've probably spent not more than 5 hours this year.

That's pretty much all you could do.

Better cooling will mean that your components will run at lower temperatures, but the same amount heat is still being kicked out into the room. Not much you can do about physics.

that machine will heat up a room, there is nothing you can do about it. i don't know what 79 freedom is but i assume it's quite hot, the fact is that a monster of a compute rlike that is gonna consumer a few hundred watts and that will heat the room up.

Any cooling tips?

Changing anything in the PC cooling wouldn't change the total power output, which is what is causing the heat. You could remove the heat more effectively with more fans, but in your situation it wouldn't do anything.

 

The only thing you can do is change the PC power output. Remove the overclocks, try to find the point of efficiency where power usage is low, but performance is high.

 

Maybe even underclock the CPU and GPU, or in worst case get lower power parts.

Basically, this.

Your options for helping to keep things cool outside of adjusting your system power consumption are fairly basic:
Air conditioning (one of any multiple different methods)
Airflow taking warm air out of your room, bringing fresh air in.

Does anyone know of a good way of venting the airflow directly from the computer to outside? I could probably rid something up but would prefer something already built.

If you've seen the whole room water cooling series, you can do something similar to what LTT's plan was; mount a radiator(s) external to the room (or building) that you're in. It will reduce the amount of hot air being dumped into your room.

It's not a trivial task, but it's the only effective one I can come up with, aside from moving the whole system to an area where you're able to force it to vent external to your enclosure.

Thanks. I'll work on this.

Look, if you have a 1000watt anything in your room, your room will heat up. 

Realistically there are 2 solutions

1) install a good A/C

2) set your PC on a different room and have the cables through a wall to your room (as Linus does) if you care about that, quote me. Or simply buy long cables/adapters

When I was GPU mining in a student apartment, I did this to help:

  1. pray for winter to come
  2. arrange my systems on a table just under my window (higher is better, but I only had the media console I found in the unit)
  3. keep said window open all the time
  4. keep a fairly strong fan directing the heat being output right at the window

It definitely did help. Sadly, I had 10 GPUs at most in a student-sized bedroom, so even Canadian winter wasn't enough to make it comfortable, but it did help, still. 

 

If you only have 1 PC, this is easier. Position it near a window (if you expect the outside to be colder than the room, ofc if you live in death valley it won't help, then only A/C can save you). You *could* consider taking the exhaust of your system (if you have active exhaust so you can capture it) and "piping" it right into the window using the same sort of idea that a dryer does (basically make a duct, put a fan in it, and force the air out of the window)
