    Most interesting, its not a conventional submerged PC which has been done numerous times (using mineral oil) this uses a special fluid that is cooled via pelter.

    Love the bubble effect off the bare cpu.

    Another PC using the same liquid with a i7 930 and 4 480's

    thanks for sharing

    I agree i like the boiling effect on the processors and cpu. I wonder what the liquid is worth and if it would perform well in a loop.

    It would perform like shit.
    Why would you want boiling in you loop? Gas carries less heat then liquid, and it takes a pretty special liquid to beat the heat carrying capability of water.

    Yeah agree here. It works in the environments above because the vapor being "steamed" off is cooled quickly by the pelter. You wouldn't be able to replicate (easily) in a loop scenario.

    It's also quite pricey IIRC.

    And its cooled with a peltier, those are still magic right?

    Fail design all around if it has to use a peltier to cool it constantly/.

    As long as some dumb ass doesnt make a comment "plz put a heatsink on it"
    :lol:

    its seems like a good idea in like 5-10 years away.

    Why 5-10 years?

    Probably a lot more than water + additives, but it may also need to be replaced less often.

    A lot of super computers use phase change cooling as it is more efficient than just immersion cooling, phase change means there is no boundary layer to worry about.

    Video about cray SV2 cooling system.

    Also, internally, a heatpipe is a phase change cooler. So phase change cooling, just not on the same level is already used in most high end PC's.

    The reason why they can only run a i3 completely bare like that is the surface area to heat ratio, put a quad core i5 or i7 under there, it has the same size heatspreader but double the heat load, so it will overheat, in 5-10 years, efficiency will be much more and the 27 core cpus we will have then will output less heat than an i3

    As can be seen in the 2nd video at the top of the thread, it doesn't HAVE to be a naked heatspreader. A heatsink can be used in this sort of system to increase the surface area and thus make it feasible.
