Non pumped cooling
I dont know how this works.. But it seam to do the trick...
I have an old stereo amp that has a gigantic heat buildup.. it cools it self witha set of copper foil like coolers, with a tubing runnignin a ring inside.. on part in the upper area and one in the lower..
Anyone know how this works? could it be of any use in a PC?
It sure keeps the cooler cold that is for sure....

Sounds like a heatpipe to me bro
Because they move heat via phase change rather than conduction, they are very efficient at moving heat over large distances. Amplifier transistors put a lot of heat out in a very small area, not at all unlike CPUs, and need a lot of surface area to get rid of that heat passively. Lots of surface area means the heat is going to have to be moved over greater distances, making this a perfect application for heatpipes.Jeff Evans (The Outcast)

Half of that i dident get.. the rest dont make me any happier :- )
Is it possible to use this in any way to make a aircooled cooler "more" effective? (Duh.. Yeah i would then be creating it all from scratch)
Looking at "good" cooling for a P4 without "to much" noise/work
(What should there be inside the pipes? and how much?)

Please refer to this, your heatpipe works off the same principles, but uses a wick to return condensed refrigerant to the thermal load.Jeff Evans (The Outcast)

Hhum.. I think i get the idea.. But then i dont have the possability to create one after what it looks like in there...
I'll look in to this..and try and find out more.. But as it seams that i need to create a wacum to get this to work.. i think im out of luck...
Anyone else has any thoughts.. Tell me :- ) Now i am off to bed.. My time is morning.. not even early :- ) (07:15)Primary rig: MSI P67A-GD65, I5 2500K, 8GB CORSAIR XMS3 PC3 12800.
