Hey there guys. I’m looking into a little experiment using an old pc I salvaged from my school’s scrap bin, where I want to try two things. First thing is test standard air cooling when I have an input ambient temperature of about -3° C. And compare temps to standards. Another, is a physical cooling of a cpu using snow xD yes yes I know that sounds stupid, but hear me out. I have a liquivac that will be sucking out water as the snow melts from CPU temps, and basically a long tube with snow being put in the top. In all honesty this a project for the complete fun of it, I expect no results to come from this, but does anyone know of anything similar ever being done involving sub-zero temps with solids.
How it is gonna work is a passive cooler with a custom bracket, with a long vertical tube which will be packed with snow, and have something continually pushing the snow in contact with the heat sink fins.
It’s a joke don’t take this seriously, but should I try it and document it here?
