  1. Maybe a strong Peltier cooler connected to an outside power source?
  2. Title states it all. Here is the case and AIO I am seeking to run. https://www.newegg.com/black-phanteks-eclipse-p500a-atx-mid-tower/p/N82E16811854101?Item=N82E16811854101 https://www.newegg.com/arctic-cooling-liquid-freezer-ii-360-liquid-cooling-system/p/N82E16835186249?Description=ARCTIC COOLING Liquid Freezer II - 360&cm_re=ARCTIC_COOLING Liquid Freezer II - 360-_-9SIAD2TEWS8305-_-Product&quicklink=true
  3. Unless manufacturers make the case really wide? It could happen.
  4. But that doesn't look cool.
  5. Absolutely not lol. A GPU with good air cooling and a NH-D15 will work fine. But why not explore new possibilities?
  6. Because cool! This is exotic cooling after all right? I know cathodic protection like that I said in the post above does work in real life on other things. Not sure about a computer water loop though. The principles remain the same I think.
  7. Yea, I agree it is mostly a nonissue. But would the configuration I posted (if a 360 rear rad was possible) in a good air flow case, then would it make even 1 degree cooler temps? Why not let us aim for optimal, even if it wont matter much.
  8. I want thinking about soldering a copper wire to my aluminum rad on one end. Then just a little pill capsule of elemental zinc connected to the wire on the other end, or maybe a solution of zinc and salt. Then just secure the pill capsule on the underside of a desk out of sight. Any copper oxidizing the aluminum will be replaced by the aluminum oxidizing the zinc. At least that how it should work in theory and how it does actually work on major underground oil and gas pipelines.
  9. I have always not been comfortable having a rad in the front intake. To me it just seems to preheat the air coming into the case. If there are any other rads serving as exhaust, then they don't get fresh ambient air going through them. Instead they get case air that is already preheated from the front rad. Plus this preheated air serves to make other components on the motherboard hotter like the VRM's or capacitors. I thought and thought about a solution to avoid this preheated front intake air and what I came up with is the configuration below. This way no exha
  10. Okay, so aluminum is oxidized by copper. I wonder if using a piece of zinc connected through a wire to say aluminum rads would serve as cathodic protection?
  11. There has to be some other reason besides cost that I am missing. A heat sink with purely copper fins would not be very much more in cost since the fins are so thin. Maybe I am missing some science within the material. Maybe the crystalline structure of the atoms within each material has something to do with it.
