Have you ever considered a more experimental method of cooling your PC components? What about a breathing PC? With CPUs and GPUs getting hotter, innovative techniques like this may be the next step in hardware evolution. Although there are some major drawbacks at this stage.
This cooling system, designed and built by Matt from DIY Perks, uses luxury technology (which we will get in a moment) to pass large volumes of fresh air through the components of the PC at the same time.
The design consists of a system of silent bellows and drawn by magnets. This means that a single magnet is suspended in an acrylic tube filled with liquid and surrounded by a cluster of magnets embedded in the bottom.
Using water through the tube using a series of cheap, interconnected water pumps, the magnets easily fire back and forth. This allows the bellows to move quickly and smoothly, pushing the air volume of the entire box up and over the components once per second.
The results are quite phenomenal.
So it works, it stays relatively quiet apart from a few light fins of the air vents (an easy solution according to Matt) and, as an added bonus, it looks super cool. So what keeps us all from following the same thing? I guess its widespread adoption would be a bit frustrated by the size of the device.
It's pretty flipin & # 39; huge.
Housed in a case that surpasses even a full-tower EATX case (that is, without the PC wrapped around the top), there’s not enough space under your middle desk to fit in the refrigerator. I’m sure a smaller unit could work, but whether it would be as effective is something else entirely.
It seems that silent, effective and science fiction cooling solutions may still be out of reach. But I can’t wait for someone to take it a step further.
