I wish I had the free time to do this kind of stuff!

I wish I had the free time money to do this kind of stuff!


Fixed it for ya.

Now if they could figure out a way to do that without having to be continually buying liquid nitrogen, that would be sweet.

Can you break it down for this dummy ?

What just happened ?

In easy to understand words .

Cold = more conductive

more conductive = faster computer

liquid nitrogen = very cold

computer + liquid nitrogen = very fast

thank you

liquid nitrogen is cheaper than milk.

Now he needs a pump for his liquid Nitrogen so he can keep it cool and run it for a longer period of time.

I wonder what liquid helium would do. He'd probably get an extra 2 or 3 Ghz.

If I had vapor phase-change cooling, I'd probably run 4 video cores boosted as high as possible and boost my processors as well.

But I think I'd get a real M16 before I did that. It'd cost about the same.

OOPS!


I just spilled my liquid nitrogen on my foot!

I know what you're talking about... it's an oily, thermally-conductive, electrically-insulative liquid developed by 3M. They had coils running between an open tank of liquid nitrogen and the tank with the immersed computer. The liquid itself didn't cool, but there was heat transfer. The problem was cost, as well; the 3M liquid was expensive, but it evaporated very slowly so it didn't need replacing, but the liquid nitrogen was all gone in less than a day; to keep the computer that cool would have been prohibitively expensive in liquid nitrogen.

wow im friggin amazed the tempetarure gradient from the sink through the chip and mb didnt shatter it

several CRAY models were/are liquid cooled.. one of which was Freon, IIRC. The other name eludes me at this time.

IIRC, NSA has one of the Crays where the entire boards are surrounded by the stuff.
