Post some dank CPU coolers Jow Forums
takes up 11/16ths of your case space
I had one of these. It fit so close to the side panel that I cut out a section in the panel and put in a mesh screen filter above the GPU. It worked surprisingly well.
no elevation or side fins to take maximum advantage of airflow, thusly not minimizing fan speed requirements
Never gonna make it!
Honestly, though, I love the aesthetic of all big ass fan coolers. I've been using AIOs for a long time, and always get urges to switch back or go for crazy passive builds.
Gonna nostalgiapost a few things.
When did Thermaltake go downhill? Or did its competitors just get that much better.
This one has a Peltier element cooling the CPU and in turn being cooled by the heatsink.
Still have one of these in use. Hell yeah.
Nothing personnel, motherboard.
What part of the motherboard do you want to cool as well?
He has VRM problems?
Heh, nothing personnel kid.
In Romania this much copper would be steal in minutes.
Same, we have a server with one for 10+ years shit never gets dusty, it's fucking magic
So cool I can almost go passive
Mine's still spinning right now. Actually I'm turning it off this week because the machine it's on is switching to AMD (and I lost the AMD mounting bracket). Not throwing it away, I'll just keep it in case I need anything cooled.
I had one of those.
Tt was the most aesthetic shit on the market so far.
The 2000s sure had some weird cooler designs. I'm kind of glad this is over and Top Blow/Tower coolers are the norm now. FWIW, I still use a Noctua NH-U12P that I bought in 2009 (upgraded to dual PAM fans), a cooler design that originated in 2006.
Its age shows, it's nowhere near as potent as the newest Noctua models, but the fact that I could keep this cooler for so long and with so many different builds (Phenom II X4 /AM2-> Phenom II X6/AM3 > FX 8350/AM3 -> Ryzen 1700/AM4) makes this the longest lasting piece of hardware I had ever bought. Poo or not, Noctuas are well wirth their money.
I'm kind of glad this is over
Fuck you, nigger.
Still better than having to deal with the local rapist.
Do you really want to go back to this
faggot? Besides, Before the noctua I had a Zalman CNPS9700 like in the pic here
back in the day, it was a very good cooler but by today's standards it's dogshit. It's probably on the same level as AMD's stock coolers.
Do you really want to go back to this
Hell yes! Try new things, give people options, celebrate the odd!
they had a really good run for at least 5 years, then they lost traction. Their innovation and aesthetics were top notch during that time. They didn't keep up well with the front to back and AIOs, though. I wish they went into more passive cooling stuff when they obviously fell behind. My brand loyalty and their innovation would have carried me into trying out a few of their things if they had. Maybe they tried and just couldn't think of any good innovations for passive stuff, though. I never looked that deeply into it.
I wonder if there's any ridiculous coolers using stock AM2 backplates, because those can be installed on AM4.
reee stop liking anything other than muh copypaste towers
Phenom II X6/AM3 > FX 8350/AM3
Why would you do this? It's not even an upgrade
Looks sleek, but if LTT is to be believed, it sucks at cooling.
What Intel CPUs come with this again? Old Xeons?
Phenom II gud
nice AVX support, faggot.
I remember hearing about kinetic coolers and then that's the only one to come out.
Gonna get this for my 3700X next weekend.
Intel's Socket 478 stock cooler was pretty nice. Just rigged up one and hooked it to a Prescott 3Ghz, getting 55-60C on full load. I don't understand where the Preshot housefire meme comes from.
The absolute state of modern pc technology
Based. Just got mine in the mail yesterday.
This is going to become the new patrician's choice air cooler. Mark my words
Thank god for AIOs. Fuck these monstrosities that are a pain to install and clean.
Still using it to this day.
post actual pics
I fucking hope that was one of the Opteron versions and not a SPARC.
It was, the Opteron hardware is now housed in a different case and was still working when I moved the hardware.
too bad it was dumbed down
I had that ram back in the day OCZ platinum ddr2 800mhz. I had to put 1 stick into a mobo and bump up the voltage before it would boot with the other 3 sticks in
I don't know what's worse, that Zalman made those fans, that I actually bought one or that other companies copied the design.
I had the mini ninja on an old am2 htpc that did go passive as long as I knocked the voltage down a step or two
oh so that explains that.
i had a phenom 2 tri-core at like 4 ghz but i fried the motherboard and i temporarily used a pentium g4400. despite the drastically lower clock speeds and the lack of threads it was insanely fast in comparison, especially for video editing, even though it technically benched lower
i have a perfectly good hyper212 i could install on my cpu but i'm a dumb motherfucker and i bought an overpriced gold gammax 400 for $40 because its gold plated and i have a gold colored gpu and gold colored fans. i bought some gold heat sinks for my ram too
super comfy thread, thanks
owo whats the principle here
i'm using one of these on a 7600k right now and i can even get it to overclock to 4.5 without my temps rising above 80 and its not like case airflow helps because the entire cooler is lower profile than a fucking ram stick
metal fan dissipates heat too
its a very impressive cooler in terms of its size but its a low profile cooler for 70w cpus, and while the gimmicky metal fan is definitely doing something, it isn't nearly as good of a cooling solution as using heat pipes. it's a novel approach within its design constraints though, that's for sure.
had that one on my athlon 64 build ages ago, was loud as fuck when it ran at full speed
aallright. i'm usually a sucker for these weird takes on classic designs.
so it's like a heatsink with moving parts lmao.
but it's still driven electrically? or are they doing that with heat as well? because that would be rad.
also since this is kind of a hardware thread. anyone know if there's compact cassette players in the same form factors as floppy drives or cds? ie that i can slot them in my tower?
i don't have high hopes but my thought is they would exist as a remnant from like the atari/commodore era when you stored data on tape.
i've found a lot of drives for different tape standars (pic related) but i want it to be the compact cassette usually used for music
wake up in your vardo
your three uncles still sleeping next to you
pickpocket your uncles
head outside to see your mom
ask her for some breakfast
mom hands you a garlic bulb
she tells you to go walk your dogs
pickpocket your dogs
realize you're actually about to do honest work
tell your mom to go fuck herself
she caves your face in with a crystal ball
pickpocket your mom before dying
Honestly that just sounds like a perfect excuse to get into 3d printing
this image sums it up well
Im considering this seriously. Stuck between that, the out of stock u12a, and either the corsair h60 or nzxt x42
Coolers have never looked so good until this
Why can't manufacturers make a rotating heat sink like that image
that's the initial idea. to spun it so fast that no would rest on
I had a Fuma about 4 years ago when I lived in Japan. I ended up getting a D15 when it wasn't enough for high voltage OCing. It's not a bad cooler but you can't ignore physics. It's just not big enough to handle a ton of heat.
It's the TS15A and is sold standalone. I don't think any CPU comes with one in the box.
Cooler Master V10. Was basically a dual tower sink with a 3rd tower laying horizontal over the ram.
Is that a Stirling engine? So rad.
yes it is
Why not a 280mm aio instead of the shitty h60?
I pulled my 2010 CNPS9900 from a box after a failed AIO, it now cools my 6700k
could this actually work? Never thought about putting a fucking sterling engine on a cpu
You are like a baby.
Where is your god now?
Where we are going we don't need fans.
I have that one semi-fanless on my 1600X.
Why is copper so fascinating, Jow Forums?
Unironically where can I buy this?
please god let this be the new meme design after RGB dies out.
you need to build it out of copper atoms
Are these supposed to be passive, or can you somehow strap a fan to them?
hey Jow Forums, what if you just polish the underside of a bismuth crystal and stick it to your CPU?
passive I think. Could work for chipsets anyway. Surprised there hasn't been a Cthluhu-themed gaymer mobo with anything like this yet.
My retard case doesnt have any space for a 240mm. Its the fractal design define mini from 2013. It has two 120mm fan spaces in the front but I dont think it can fit a radiator.
That's a no go
1. You'd need shitload of bismuth
2. Thermal conductivity of bismuth is really, really shit compared to copper or aluminum, afaik it's even worse than iron
Given how easy it is to cast aluminum I'm surprised there's no such meme heatsinks in circulation.
That's a really bad attempt at passive cooling because the hot air just gets trapped between the plates
Pentiums and Celerons don't have AVX either.
Shieeeet, that niqqa ugly
What the hell are those
blocks your path
Slices your hand into ribbons
heh, nothing personal kid
Got enough fans in there? What's a noctua fan cost these days, like $33 a piece?
Pic related is the absolute best deal in CPU cooling dollar for dollar. Doesn't look terrible either.
fully passively cooled heatsink designs made out of other stock heatsinks.
fractal design doesn't design fractal heatsinks
Must be expensive to mold. The air resistance must be high too. Also imagine cleaning these.
Sexy as fuck. Is it worth it to buy a heatsink and noctua fans separately?
3D printers bro. Also canned air, bro.
he doesn't know about Nehalem cpus
zoomers I swear.
what is triple channel ram
fucking summer zoomer newfags
Guys, what if we filled this with mercury? Will it work effectively?
looks like a dual channel motherboard though
less effectively than if it was just a solid block of copper inside, actually. Mercury has lackluster thermal conductivity. It's also not a good working fluid for a conventional liquid-cooling system. Besides the toxicity, its extraordinarily hard to pump around because its so damn heavy.
looks like you're a blind idiot
They worked well for low profile needs, even the more elevated ones like that one (trade off between profile and efficiency). That one was also pretty innovative in the fin design.
To be fair they did print "jet" on the side to warn you.
I just bought this for my new Ryzen build. Waiting to see 3800X reviews before getting a cpu though.
Is the bottom fan an intake or exhaust fan?
What a failure that was
Time to get a new case then!
It is a dual channel motherboard though, I have an Intel dual channel like that.
Would this be any good at cooling, better than traditional heatsinks?
The DX58SO is not a dual channel motherboard you stupid fuck. For whatever reason, intel gave the first channel 2 dimm slots while the others only had 1.
What's that mean?
lmao, just use a tire inflator
I remember calling them out on when they were first announced and everyone got excited.
They would require the tolerances and finish only the aerospace industry employs and only in the engines
Not that it's impossible, but it wont work any cheaper than 500-700$ per unit.
I told you its not a consumer technology a couple years ago.
Wow you're a total Nostradamus bro
literally just googled 'compact cassette 5.25" but this one looks pretty shitty. looks like most people that want something like that use car stereos and hack it together
its not for audio cassettes you tard, its a data tape drive for backup purposes, some tapes can fit 330 terabytes and more
you say that as if the post im replying to didn't contain:
anyone know if there's compact cassette players in the same form factors as floppy drives or cds? ie that i can slot them in my tower?
literally the best cooler of all time
Nah I just bought
airflow in two different directions
one fan 50% blocked
completely covering up ram
what the FUCK
What TDP do you figure those are rated for passively?
3D printing is extremely slow and cnc machines are significantly more expensive than the metal presses they use to make copper heat pipes and finstacks.
you lost me
the final four
Not sure. Those weren't rated but this 5kg design by the same guy is rated for 200 watts TDP.
install everything and rotate the pc up
mobo breaks from the sheer weight
These are beautiful
I'll stick to my Hyper 212 and 65W TDP chips.
Cools my pozzed Intel in my Node 202.
link for the paper on that? sounds like they created the models through ML
Fin stacks are by far the most efficient and effective method of creating surface area. These are pretty, but by no means practical.
no. theyre the eaasiest to produce, and best price/perf
At best, you would be able to tell what temp your cpu is at a glance, but you would be better off with almost any other material.
intake. The only exhaust is the one in the rear.
You have no idea what you're talking about. Go back to /v/.
Also corrosion due to amalgamation would probably be a problem.
For me, it's passive cooling.
To think Gomennasai has been drawing porn for 30 years.
Tfw simple heatsink.
Atleast the ball bearing fan is nice.
Does it get forward thrust? Is it gonna make your motherboard take flight and get out of your computer case?
Did you embed CP in it?
He did mention though that all of those coolers are astronomically larger than the Tt Engine
I love how no frills most of Artci's line up is. A very underrated company.
Weird, that's the only file in the folder that size.
what kind of söy photography is this shit?
Why are there so many different designs? Surely there must be an objectively "best" design for a CPU on an ATX motherboard?
I also have an NH-U12P with its stock fans on my new Ryzen 7 3700X. Still works a treat.
Because marketing is more powerful than simple pragmatism. If it looks powerful then people will think it's powerful even when it does nothing more cooling performance wise than a simple 120mm tower cooler.
I been experimenting with the effects of lighting and shadows on different cameras and settings. Otherwise I dont take pictures of my things, so this is all I've got.
Give him a break. He just wanted to show off by including his case and power supply in the photo.
if we're bringing gpu coolers into the mix
the bliss golden sample 8800GT = god tier
the only thing thats arrived so far is the gpu because its all fucking camelback from china but rest assured if it all actually looks half decent its getting posted in every thread
Yeah me too, and since they are simple but good they are really cheap.
They should release a high end one though.
Their gayming line is overpriced but hey, its what some people want.
You know your PSU should be backwards?
Your PSU is sucking air and your heatsink fan is also sucking air to throw it outside the case.
4 slots though. Nehalem didn't have 4 dimm boards. I can't imagine why anyone would make one.
the cpu cooler intakes from the rear and exhausts through the power supply which exhausts out the bottom
This dude gets it
what is it called nigga
im tryna get rid of the h60 shit's ass
uwu wats this
what cpu you running and what cooler?
Looks like a Fuma Rev.B.
Watercooling is shit in general unless you have a ITX build.
best value cooler ever.
also, ran it for 8 years paired with an intel pentium g620, kek.
Yea boi. Got that on my 3700X right now.
Generally with fans, the sticker indicates the direction the flow is coming into. Therefore it's an intake.
Still rocking this bad boy
I had this on my old Socket 939 setup. Or something very close to this. I honestly do not remember what kind of temps it had, but I was running 24/7 md5 cracking at the time, and it was summer, so a better cooler was necessary.
not even noctua
Was there a question if the power supply was gay?
Corsair Obsidian 650D for life too.
Found that Bitfenix 230mm PRO fans (went for black) were the better Fan to use on this (got side panel mesh so I can use 3x 230mm Fans.
wouldn't work with that tiny fan which obviously is made as a proof of concept kind of contraption. the engine would hava a very low output because the temperature of the CPU won't reach boiling temperatures, or at least that's now what we want from a cooler. a stirling engine will work with low output even with a small temperature difference, but to get any meaningful results by using it as the motor for a cpu cooler is not really feasible. if you were to use a certain form of ethanol, it would have a boiling point of less than 70 degrees celcius, so with that you could actually power a 120mm fan well enough to keep the temperatures from boiling water hot. but there is a problem, if you decrease the CPU temperature enough, it will prevent the ethanol from boiling so you wouldn't get a very smooth and stable cooling of the CPU. a small heatsink like in the picture would work with a very low TDP laptop processor, maybe, but it's not really viable for aanything. it's a funny idea but any $30 cooler like a 212 would provide you with miles better cooling performance without the mechanical wearout a stirling engine would experience really quickly
I have this and it's great. I have set my fan curves so that they are barely idling and virtually silent when I'm using the computer for normal things, it will kick up when the load increases but it will never really get hot. what a good price to quality raatio. all the engineering of noctua for half the price
Surprised there hasn't been a Cthluhu-themed gaymer mobo with anything like this yet.
If they made one, I'd actually be willing to buy it, even with the increased price and all.
It... looks like a flock of pigeons.
fractal design doesn't design fractal heatsinks
I'd be buying their shitty low quality cases if they did this.
I bought one of these for my first build back in like 2012 and was so sad that I couldn't fit it in my case because I was a retard who didn't measure anything out before buying
Had to use the shitty stock fan that came with my Phenom II
arctic alpine am4 cooler
r7 1700 at 2.8GHz and undervolted to 1.1something
It's a spare I made from parts I had lying around that I wanted to experiment with, which is why it's passive cooled. I'm thinking about making it a VR unit but I don't think the cooling would be adequate, maybe if I disable a couple cores. Currently, it's collecting dust and I carry my main computer from room to room for VR.
Where my ITX niggers at?
The one in the picture is actually on a northbridge not a cpu.
Also, what does boiling of liquid have to do with how effective a stirling engine is? Not saying you're wrong. Those things can run off the heat from the palm of a hand as long as the ambient air temperature is low enough.
gay components are easy to spot once powered on, but before that you often don't notice the rgb leds. bq is just saving people from nasty suprises here.
the maximum efficiency of a heat engine (any heat engine) is determined by the temperature difference. Specifically it's 1 - (Tc/Th), Th being the temperature of the heat source and Tc being the temperature of the sink (in this case the surrounding air), both in kelvins. So lets say the air inside our case is 300K (just over 80F) and the chipset temperature is 60C, or ~333K. 300/333 is 0.9, from 1 is a maximum of 10% of the input energy is going to do useful work. In practice its going to be quite a lot less because this is a theoretical maximum that ignores friction, etc. For comparison the gasoline engine in your car has a maximum theoretical efficiency of around 37%, but nothing that isn't a custom-built and finely-tuned race car gets much above 20%.
I don't know what that other user was going on about with boiling the liquid. Phase-change is a good way to move a lot of heat, because of the enthalpy of vaporization - 100C liquid water needs a lot of heat added to it to turn it into 100C steam. That's how air conditioners and heatpipes work. But that doesn't affect the maximum efficiency of an engine that's extracting mechanical work from heat. The reason you don't see those small stirling engines is that they're just plain a lot more trouble and expense than a conventional brushless electric fan, and they don't really get you much of anything in return. Okay, you might make good use of a whole quarter-watt that might otherwise be wasted, woo. They're a really neat mechanical hack - especially the ones that you mentioned that can run off of the small thermal gradient between your body and the air. But even with an expensive jewel-like high-precision mechanism, you can't get much useful work out of them. As a party trick you don't need to, it's enough to see the thing turning. But for the practical business of moving air they just aren't competitive. Hence why only that one board ever used one, it was and is just a gimmick.
It's like looking at fetish titty porn... but now there's 8 to 12 tiddys and I don't know which one to look at so I end up taking too much time and become flaccid again.
I find the words "Straight Power" on your PSU very offensive. You should mark them out before you get put on the no hire list.
Reminds me of something....
if I put an AMANDA cooler on my new Ryzen processor, will it help with my LATENCIA?
I have found this tiny R134a compressor.
Should I order it and make custom freon cooler?
A compressor that size could probably chill that can of soda pretty effectively. No way it'd cool a CPU though, you'd need something significantly larger and more powerful.
Wouldnt thermoelectric cooling be cheaper?
Idk, rotary compressors are pretty small. Typical windows AC compressor is 500W and can provide 1500W of cooling. It is slightly larger than fridge piston compressor, which is 180W at best.
Also, mechanical part is relatively small, and with powerful and small motor (BLDCs are powerfull and small) it would be smaller.
TECs are low efficiency.
only if you get free electricity, and lots of it.
I don't see how you couldn't put a fan on this
Imagine using these stupid meme fans instead of superior watercooling for the CPU. Also you can get the water coolers with RGB lighting to be a chad.
Imagine using stupid watermeme instead of Freon cooling
i have an itx build but i'm cooling a i5-8400 so it's not really a necessity, plus i have the h200 case
how are the temps, do you think it's feasible?
I want a passive cooler, i might end up getting a big heatsink and run it without the fan
funny pic but low-effort baitposting
the fuma is a monster but only with higher than normal mounting pressure.
Shit, this is real.
my mugen2 rev.b is still going. sadly no am4 support.
oh no, 1 cent of paint was used on the board, however will we recover?
as much as i like function over form on motherboards, it really doesnt matter. the black pcbs are the same price for oems now, and it does look better.
and the batmobile
I have the cpu tuned so that at max load it doesn't go over 70c. Right now I have one 200mm fan pulling air in from the lower front and one 120mm exhaust top/rear, both set to the lowest speed they can go. if there were more fans and they were turned up it would cool a stock 1700 fine I think. But that would defeat the purpose of going passive. I might try turning down the clock speed even more, to try and give me some temp room to remove the case fans altogether but I've largely abandoned the project since the honeymoon phase. iirc the cooler is rated at 65w so the r7 is pushing it a bit at stock speeds on top of the msi board having awful vrm's that can't keep up with more than 4 cores.
Ah i remember my 5770.
There were the Coolermaster V10; didn't work out well.
You can install it in conjunction to a massive heatsink, like how CM implemented a peltier device on their V10.
Do AIOs leak?
Yeah, seals go bad with time.
ltt always misses the point of hardware, it's meant for extremely space limited applications not as a competitor for larger coolers
correct, it's a Fuma Rev. B, which was in the file name. I got mine for like $43, matches all the high end dog shit like Be Quiet and Noctua at half the price. Running it on a Ryzen 2700, when I'm at all core load at stock speeds for rendering and what not it keeps the chip around 50-55C which is pretty good for an 8 core processor.
Ok you got me. I'm at a loss of words now.
