Could you try using mercury or gallium instead of water in the cooling loop? The thermal conductivity is much higher than the one of water.
Propably the pump has to be more powerfull because of the thicker viscosity.

Actually a really clever idea for someone who just wants to do a quick, cheap and easy record bench. The biggest problem is the sudden heat spike where it doesn't matter how cold the water is, the heat just won't tranfer fast enough causing throttling or shutdown.

I've been following this LMG for many years now and I would argue this is among the funniest videos to date..
Please keep doing things Linus doesn't want you to do behind his back!!

What if you use a huge reservoir? And make that of aluminum with fins on the side to bleed even more heat?

put 20ft of copper tubing in a concreate cellar wall when building a home and hook the copper tubing to the waterpump..the wall is the rad.

Imagine a "River cooled" PC. Free Water to cool your Rig constantly not wasting anything.

I think this could actually work, just get a 1000 liter tank and put up it up high somewhere than just fill it with ground water you pump up from a well. At 150 litres an hour you'd be gaming for over 6 hours before having to fill it and that takes just a few minutes...

Can even the use water afterwards for your plants or animals or whatever.

I'm a week late, but if you ran a water line off the main supply, through the cooling loop, then back to the main, it would constantly have cool water and no waste. Do it!

yeah thats not the greatest i think you need higher pressure

The water pump method is not to far off from my setup, save I use a 55 gallon plastic drum of water in the basement, but I also hit the render button about 200 times a day so....

TAP COOLING WITH ALEX AND JAKE!

I thought they would put the MB upside down with cold running water in the sink so that the water would go through the metal fins of the heatsink (obviously with the water not touching the MB) to cool the cpu down. Still think it could perform better but 1000x riskier.

Next time, duct tape the water intake to the fridge water outlet.

150L of flow per hr.... small chiller sucking heat out of about 500 litres of water.... it would prob be doable in a closed loop
