1 anyone that does overclocking knows to lock the heatsink in the motherboard. That on was not. This means there was not good contact with the heatsink and the cpu to begin with
2 anyone that overclocks (or as they called it an extreme overclocking) would use thermal paste. They had none.
Watch the intel P4 video you can clearly see a wire running under the table to that very spot. Smoke comes from under the table and motherboard.
Not only that but why are both the amd and the intel both at the spot on the table. Both cpu were lined up with the hole the "the first one blow through"
CPU will not exploded for overclocking or over volting.
...no poo. considering the first 20 seconds they say 6 gallons of vegetable oil.
anyway.. it would be a bitch to work on that if something went wrong after all that oil.. ya know like upgrading, adding memory. yum
I would never put any liquid near any electronics no matter what. Dunno, just basic instinct.
speak for yourself! :-)
The point of passive cooling is to quiet the system while maintaining safe temps.
Passive systems like this and water cooled computers is that at a point they reach a equilibrium. While fan cooling there is always new (hopefully cool) air added and heat air removed. Theres also phase change but theres no need to get into that.
"chips" do not exploded. They can get very heat and short themselves out but almost ever cpu, gpu and motherboard have build in protection. Most damage that happens isn`t from overclocking but over volting.
when you overclock your computer (make it faster) it heats up ALOT ALOT ALOT ALOT to the point that the chip could explode
if its cooler, you can keep an overclocked (go faster) at a longer time
its also quiet
But I think it`s neat :3
you need a strong pump because the oil is pretty thick
Good luck to anyone who buy those "Liquid cooling" computer system in the future. When something goes wrong with those thing you not only need to repair the damage you also need to clean the mess.
ugh, what a mess
I wonder what the people at best buy ("GeekSquad") would do if you asked them to do work in a machine like this lol
this looks like a good summer project for me
a few other guys, what they did was remove the fan from the PSU,GPU,and CPU. They left the heatsink on the CPU tho. I am still wondering if I need to epoxy my cpu to my mobo >.>
In fact.... lava lamp PC anyone? Although I doubt wax is particularly healthy for computers, can anyone think of a computer-safe emulsion with that stuff?
They actually wrote that they didn`t want to have fans in there at first. Though they didn`t remove it because it looked cool. Maybe it helps to create a current that distributes heat better.
I`d choose that over water cooling ;)
Also, they should have removed the fan attatchment from the power source as pushing oil around is just going to wear it down.
hax0rs at it again w00t! FTW
-216 Degrees Celsius woot.
Now the cool thing to do would be to find a way to make sure that the oil stays cooled. I wonder if maybe oil submersion is the way to go for CPUs with extremely high clock rates... Don`t have time to look it up though...
that is cool as hell though, but I wouldn`t do it. I don`t like mixing my computer equipment with liquid
