Post subject:  Cold Loop or Cooling Collant Reserviors

I have a question on using the MCW6500-775T (If these are even manufactured anymore) to create a cold loop / hot loop to attempt to bring the coolant temperature in the cold loop (component side) down to below ambient temperature.

For example. Using the Maelstrom 5 1/4" Dual Bay Reservoir and have one pump send the coolant out to a MCW, which is attached to a cooper plat attached to another Maelstrom (some modification required). Then use the other pump to do the same to another MCW on another plate to the same Maelstrom). This would bring the temperature in the 2nd tank down below room temperature, possibly, I would think (not sure on how much cooling they can provide vs how much coolant the tank holds).

Then the cold loop (the Maelstrom that was cooled with the modified MCW's would pump the cooled coolant to the CPU out into a radiator and then dumps the coolant back into the cooled Maelstrom.

So your basically using one loop (radiator, Maelstrom, MCW6500's) as a hot loop to cool the coolant in the cold loop which is then used to cool the components. Depending on how cold you could get the cold loops reservoir you could theoretically (with a large enough case like the Lian Li PC-D600WB) keep the cold loop away from the electrical components in case of uncontrolled condensation and the warm loop on the MB side or above or even externally or switch them either way and maintain a cold loop allowing your components to run below room temperature.

Anyone think this would work? It would be a great way to get extreme cooling and allow for greater overclocking, if it would work :)

been tossing the idea around for a while, thought I would see what others thought.

What you're talking about is how large buildings are air conditioned. They use the cold side of a large A/C unit to chill water, and the chilled water is pumped into each room's ventilation. It essentially works like the opposite of a boiler, if that makes sense? This is very efficient in a large system such as high rise office buildings, hotels, etc.

In the small scale of a computer case, it's the equivalent of a Rube Goldberg machine.
