I understand how the phase change setup works. But what do you do with the Evaporator pipes? My best guess is that you submerge the pipes in a water resevoir and then just run a normal water cooling system, but correct me if I am wrong.
Direct die can kill your CPU faster correct? How much of a temperature difference would there be between these three options?
1. Direct Die phase change
2. 226w Pelt
3. Phase change chilling the water and then a standar wc setup.
Well I might as well go all of the way if I am going to do it (too bad I already bought the copper to make my waterblocks and coldplates!!! $36 down the drain). Can anyone get me some good info on setting up a direct die system?
And Nealric I think I know what you mean about the risks being the same. If there isn't good contact, no matter what form of cooling you are using, your CPU is toast. And the only other consideration is condensation, which by the way I have no idea how to do when it comes to direct die.
A vacuum isn't a pressure test, to test your evaporator you have pressurize it a good margin above maximum equalized pressure for your system.For instance at an average room temperature using propane your system will equalize at or below the vapor pressure of propane, about 125psi.That is only if there is liquid in the system, so chances are actual equalized pressure will be below the vapor pressure.
Anyone have any good guides on how to make an evaporator out of a solid piece of copper? I really have no idea where the best place to get parts is, besides ripping them out of an old fridge. How powerful of a compressor do I need?
Also, a coolant with a lower boiling point is more effecient correct? But it needs a stronger compressor to get it to liquid state. And that would require my block to be able to stand more pressure. Correct?
