NCIX Tech Tips #20 - CoolIT Systems Domino ALC & Sub-Zero Cooling
 
Hey All,

Hopefully this is on topic. Thought you might want to see the little video I did up at work of the new CoolIT Domino ALC. We took it outside into the Canadian winter to see what kind of temps we could get on an i7!

Very nice, always have to be careful of condensation :)

Linus December 29, 2008 02:50 PM

Yep. I powered the system back on today and it's fine :)

You only need to worry about condensation when the system is being cooled below the ambient air temperature. Since the entire system is outside, there is no issue of condensation (until you bring back inside). I might do this soon, before I try to cool my rad with dry ice.

Cooling your rad with dry ice would not work. They're simply not designed to exchang heat that way...

I'm open to being proven wrong though :)

you just cleaned it out

in electronic world we use waterjet to clean circuit boards just have the caps discharged b4 starting, blow off excess than off to the oven (102f) for 15mins

correct if only using dice

but with alcohol submersed rad an dice, instant frost

Seeing that there are usually 10+ caps on a motherboard. Am curious, what is the most practical way to discharge the caps? And how often do you waterjet a circuit board? Wouldn't there be oxidation over repeated use?
