Buy concrete mix

You should try liquid metal thermal paste in the loop i wonder how that will work

that would be the most expensive cooling ever. Like 2 litres of liquid metal would be in orders of thousands of $.

Floatplane on the forum isn't a thing anymore, dude

Not if you used the Thermal Grease from one of their older videos (

Hey what is the second best conductor of heat or electricity? Copper ! look into this a mixture of copper powder mixed with water or glycerin for a coolant here is the powder you will need glycerin https://www.amazon.com/Copper-Powder-100g-Atomized-Metal/dp/B00B0D4CCS

Did you diluted the solution?

Why not just use liquid metal with copper tubing?

@LinusTech Would love to see you guys do this for real... in the correct way.

 

 

dig a 0.5 round  by 1m deep hole...

get 20m of tubing(filled with water)

coil it up in the bottom of hole

then fill the hole with concrete.

hook the PC up to the tubing and test it out.

Can Anybody Link A Virtual Machine while I go download some RAM?

Would it not harden and dry over time anyway even when not running? Like shouldn't the heat slowly make the cement hard as the water leaves? Question mark? I know its a closed loop but something like this would prob happen right? Like the outside bits would harden because they arent flowing and the inner bit that was flowing would slowly shrink as the harder, dried outside grew in size.. right?

 

 

 

CAN WE GET A DURATION TEST ON THIS? LIKE UPS HOOKED TO THE SYSTEM AND LEAVE IT RUNNING TILL IT DIES?
