I'm wondering if anyone has come across (or modded) a split system for cooling PCs please?
It's all very fine going water cooled but if the fan and pump are still in earshot, what's the point?
I'm envisaging a system with attachments, preferably modular, for CPU, GPU, north and south bridge, RAM modules, possibly hard disks. The coolant liquid will then be pumped from somewhere remote and cooled (like the outside of the house, similar to air conditioning units - but with a quieter fan!
Hell, why stop there?! We could move the last fan (PSU) outside too and just run the 12V, 5V lines in.
Oh oh! I can see where this is going.... forget all that, why don't we just move the whole PC with its 'noisy' components outside (under shelter of course)
and just run the on/off button wiring to the inside, together with the other necessary cables. Will be a bit of a pain having to walk out to change DVD's but that's a noisy bit too isn't it?
