Adobe Reader is ubiquitous because Adobe, for some strange reason, managed to convince the world that .PDFs ARE Adobe Reader files!?
Why they wanted to be ubiquitous and have there shity, slow reader app on more computers than have windows on them... then... bend over and take it boys...
My next upgrade path is Ubuntu. (IT Admin for 700 Workststions)
Did I want to learn Ubuntu?
Microsoft left me no choice with their bloated crapware, ridiculous pricing and specially designed to be utterly confusing licensing schemes, not to mention the goons they will send round as...
These guys have been buying out the makers of excellent software and fucking it up for years:
The old PC Tools
Quaterdeck (remember cleansweep)
Now the makers of, arguably, the best anti-spyware application out there.
I am seariously pissed off!
Isnt it time some government dept...
Good thing too: Now I can put one in my old, low flow, Koolance case.
Where the hot air from the radiator wont blow through the Ice-Cap heatsink!
Just occured to me that I could remove the pump in front of the heatsink and put on another fan for extra coolness!
Damn! And it has to be a Dell! :mad:
Am looking for more details now.
EDIT: Dells Page. Click: Technology - H2C - how H2C works.
That has to be the biggest cooler ever bolted to a...
Thank goodnes theres someone else with brains/imagination in this thread! JK guys :D
I think this is brobably a very low flow system with specifically designed waterblocks (all 3)
It should work well in one of those old Koolance cases...which I just happen to have!...;)
To clarify my...
I wonder what would happen if you put one of these things between a std rad and the waterblock?:
The rad should bring temps down to 'ambiant' while this drops them sub ambiant!
Should make a nice room cooler at idle! :D
Wonder how they do it though; attempts to use ice caps to cool...
I used a car relay in my home made system.
12V & ground for the relay from molex connector.
The other side is just a switch so AC or DC does not matter as long as the pump is pulling less amps than what the relay (switch side) is rated for.
Also switches a 220 Volt fan!
you probabl.y can, although I have not tried it.
At some point the pump will stop turning compl.etely and I would be lothe to try it without a flow meter of some sort.
If your pump is screwed to your case it is probably causing the case to resonate.
Try mounting it with double sided tape...
THX Pherret :)
If I do something similar again I'll defenatly build the mister and rad into the bottem of the case.
Or an enclosure attached to the bottem.
Eye catching plumbing...
This is the water supply to the cistern.

Finally had some time to work on this project again:
This is a bad photo of the enclosure and its components:
Top left is the a rectangular mesh screen for catching most of the droplets that would normally end up on the radiator and air filters. Effectivly blocking airflow.
Left is the...
Testing caused the enclosure to rust quite a bit.
So I sanded down all the steel plate bits and had them galvanised:
All nice and shiny! Seems a pity to paint them but I want to keep wet metal down to a minimum.
This is my centrafuge/fan/evaporator thingy:
A fan, without the frame...
From tthe point of view of heatpipes:
Liquid boils at the bottem of the pipe.
Steam rises and condenses higher up the pipe.
Droplets run down the side of the pipe to re-boil.
These cases make a lot of sense too.
I think heatpipe manufacturers are using wicks or...
Definatly open KrakenGuy, otherwise the air will become saturated and not cool anymore. Will even begine to warm up!
Even the windows in the room will have to be open so that the air in the room does not become saturated.
Testing today with the thermal probe thats part of the Koolance...
THX KrakenGuy :)
Hoping to get 4Gig from my Presscott 2.4 A. :eek:
I'm busy with a centrafuge fan thingy idea to get more of the mist evaporated.
If droplets stick to the radiator and evaporate there, thats OK, but I dont want to cool the room rather than the radiator.
THX revenant & Ultragamma :)
Not worried about the relavant humidity at all revenant: The climate is very dry and windows are always open.
Condensation is not a poblem Ultragamma:
Condensation forms when the air is over-saturated with vapour. Here the air will only cool down while it...
Some more photos:
The MB & Vid Card: A P4P800E De Lux & Asus 9800 Pro.
the 9800 Pr0 has a R360 core and has been flashed to a 9800 XT.
I will do the Droop & V Dim mod on the MB and a V core & V mem mod on the card later.
I'll also be adding some of the missing caps to the MB...
They have been working all weekend while I test the cistern and the best way to mount small fans to get the mist evaporated before going through the radiator.
The bearings are sealed and the thin layer of paint just wipes off the oily surface.
If the paint had been electrically...
Been doing this for years.
I'v always seen improved temps and better overclockability.
Mosfets are designed to dissipate heat through the side that is normally soldered to the MB. Many other chips also dissipate heat into the MB.
The CPU has hundreds of highly heat conductive paths from...
Car;'s panel beated & Painted so I've had some time for the Mod. :)
The Enclosure is too long for it and the PSU; so brackets.
Bling for the fans: Drilled 2 holes/ fan for LEDs They dont shine up in the black So silver.
The wires have to go...
Mixing AS5 and ASA increases the thermal conductivity of the ASA and makes it easier to remove the heatsinks.
I use a 50/50 mix of ASA and AS5 as is recomended on the AS site.
To avoid getting the mixture on the pins and legs of chips stick a large piece of insulation tap over the legs...
486s multiplier can be changed via jumper settings.
As xxGriff said the FSB on good boards had settings up to 50 Mhz. The 25 33 and 40 Mhs settings run the PCI bus at a 1:1 ratio. The 50 Mhz setting runs the PCI bus at 2/3ds the speed = 33Mhz.
I found the 40 Mhz to be more effective as...
With any luck the enclosure will be completely water/air tight; Exept for the entrances, through the filters, and the exits, through the fans on top.
The side covers will have cutouts for the filters. when they are in place the blue rubber part of the filter will be tightly squeezed...
As your system is using water all the time you dont want to be running off to the shops all the time to buy additives. The fumes of which could be realy bad for you.
I would go with a water softener/filter and the UV light, and inline filter, to kill badies. Perhaps with some Fishtank...
Evaporative cooling rocks! Sub ambiant without any condensation worries: Water only evaporates/cools until the air is saturated. Condensation only forms when the air is oversaturated.
With radiator cooling water siphons down in the downward pipes so you dont have to worry about pump head...
THX Zecora. :)
I made the mould by mixing up some Plaster of Paris in an icecream container.
I then drilled 2 holes to bolt the block of plaster to my milling machine.
Then I milled out the opposite shape to the casting I wanted.
Then some sanding to round the inner corners.
