Suggestion to LTT (&community) What would happen if you would plant seeds inside of a pc?

Go to solution Solved by StackUnderflow,

I don't know about living things and electronics mixing. Is there a concern of bacteria or mold in an enclosed spaces? Or high humidity (which would be bad for exposed metal/electronics)?

 

I don't deny it would be cool to have a hydroponics PC where you hook up the PSU to sun lamps, a built in filtration system and use the hydroponics in the PC cooling loop. 

I was wondering, since we have had everything now in and around pcs from mineral oil, rocks to concrete .... how would green, not only thrive but also afftect the computer's factors (bottom of the post)

 

Curiously, there are a lot of plants / seeds that do not require lots or any water or even sunlight (although I can see linus already "water cooling seeds")

For starters, cress doesn't require any maintaince. It can even be grown on regular bathroom wool/cotton pads.

Though cress doesn't grow much in height than a few centimeters. If such a build were truely be taken on, one would have to plant other seeds and plants that grow much higher.

 

So, what if one were to plant grass, seeds, weeds, plants etc.. into a pc case. 

 

How would they affect air-flow, pressure, temperature, humidity, power consumption, fps, the plants?

(Would probably install the psu externally for safety reasons).

This build would be called: The Gardeners Build.

So what do you think. Would you like to see Linus loose his sanity with such a monstrous build?

I once knew a guy whose secondary computer was inside a shed outside the house, laying on the ground. He was always talking about how cool it was, after we opened it we saw literally mold and dirt inside the case, so wouldnt recommend rly . anything that grows will eventually shed its dead leafs and other stuff, so wouldnt recommend

1) low light

2) high humidity

3) you don't want things to grow in your watercooling loop, if that's your idea of keeping the plants hydrated

 3a) the water temp might also be too high for certain plants, so it's not as easy as just supplying the water

 

Overall, not recommended to mix plants and PC, I would think

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Plants have water, if it touches any bare pins it would create a short. I dont think it's a good idea.

Ryzen 2600x @ 4.2ghz all cores | Asrock B450M Steel Legend | Radeon RX580 | 4x Samsung 8gb d-die 2133 @ 3200mhz | 500gb Samsung PM981a | 5 TB HDD | Hyper 212 classic w/ 2 delta 4000rpm push pull | Antec Neo Eco Zen 500w
