Water cooled Laptop on a plane

Hi guys, 
I was just wondering, if I could take my watercooled laptop on a plane and use it there?
Does anybody have any experience on that?

is this a diy project? What laptop is this? The airplane tables are barely able to fit a 15 inch laptop.

If the notebook has been customized by you and no longer follows the manufacturer's specs, you'd probably violate the law. Even if the notebook is working fine, it is no longer within the specs that have been approved/tested/... whatever.

 

Whether someone would catch on to that and you'd get into trouble... probably depends on the airline and the security checks and how obvious and "ghetto" these modifications are.

They will open your laptop,rip the loop out of the laptop and drain it,

In a lot of cases the damage they do is irrepairable.

 

They will see the liquid in the scanning machine,it's not hard to miss.

I would not try it at least not trying to use your laptop in the plane if you want to transport it I‘d empty the loop in advance

and be prepared to explain what you are transporting. Because I don’t think you‘ll easily let through security ( since it seems that they often aren’t able to distinguish a gun and a waterbottle

Not to mention an electronic device with cables sticking out or looking otherwise suspicious/tampered with could very well be mistaken for something more sinister, which might mean you'll spend some time in custody explaining things and might lose possession of the item.

If you are very unlucky they will call the police for diffusing your „ bomb“ but very very very unlikely

Yes it is. I build it last year and it is my only Laptop. I don't plan to fly anywhere soon. I was just curious, if anybody has tried it before. But I guess, it isnt possible then. Thanks for your answers



That's the Laptop.

Forgot the obvious: https://europa.eu/youreurope/citizens/travel/carry/luggage-restrictions/index_en.htm

Quote

Liquids carried in the aircraft cabin such as aerosols, drinks, toothpaste, cosmetic creams or gels must be carried in a transparent plastic bag - maximum capacity 1 litre - and no container may hold more than 100 ml. Liquid containers larger than 100 ml must be placed in checked baggage. The volume restriction does not apply to medicines and baby food.

Even if the device itself passes inspection, you can't have more than 100 ml in a single container.

They have a good reason to not allow liquids on planes - liquid bombs and molotov cocktails are a serious threat.

Oh, that will make it impossible. I dont have a lot of water in my loop, since it is pretty small, but it is more than 100ml.

I know it’s more an ironic explanation that airport security is very strict and investigate anything suspicious

I'd say even without the water it is too wide to fit on an airplane table without blocking your neighbor's table as well. Not to mention an unprotected fan someone could get their fingers into :D (Cool project nonetheless)

Not a chance.

 

You would maybe be ok if the waterloop looked much more professionally built. Using less mainstream components and 3d printed enclosure that could look less DIY.

Something like a 3x80mm rad (nexxxos make them) that is mounted in a an enclosure that attaches to the back of the laptop behind the screen hinge or the side of the laptop. No pipes visible, no wires visible, with shrouded fans, and no res.

Yeah, no chance at all. You have to use it with liquids and those have to be put in a clear plastic bag so that's the first issue. It looks sketchy and hard to test for anyone who isn't into this stuff. People with DIY headphone amps had their issues getting them through security. You're coming up with liquids and stuff. Not a chance.

 

And even if you brought it on a plane: remember the lower cabin pressure. Those liquids will expand and you might sport a leak.

 

Forget it.
