Can you get maximum performance AND silence at the same time by using a tower cooler on your graphics card? We took not one, but two DeepCool Assassin III Coolers and built the Silent but Deadly PC to find out!

Wouldnt a heat pipe not work being completely upside down, as the vapour would condense in the bottom end and turn to gas around the too hot end? Exactly the opposite of what you want.

Would be even better if the heat source (gpu) would not be the highest point of the cooling system^^ turn case upside down! ;) xD

Good job, Linus, you turned the heat pipes 90 ° (vertical instead of horizontal). 8:25 Would be interesting to know, if the power consumption was significantally lower. You know, for the sake of saving energy...

The hassle of having to make sure everything important is covered by the heatspreader puts me off, but I would buy the hell out of it if a card manufacturer made something like this, or if the cooler manufacturers made mounting kits.

I would not be surprised if these started coming out with GPU compatibility out of the box.

can u do this sort of thing for a RX 5700XT reference model, I am sure there are plenty of people who are just as curious?

Hey Linus! What about water cooling of air cooler heat sink? (: There is some video about attempting this... "I Water Cooled My Air Cooler AND..."

This is why I am using the Kraken g12 and an AIO to water cool my gtx1060 XD mostly for fun, but when I upgrade I should be able to water cool that card as well.

Oh shit. And what will to cool a VRM zone?

If a fan dies on my gpu I just use that as an excuse to strap some Noctua's to it. Looks janky and all but progresses my mission to put Noctua fans everywhere :P

I would like to see an experiment using gas instead of liquid in a water cooling loop.
biohazardlnf 19 days ago
By gas what do you mean? It would work like normal air. It's a gas.... if you mean by liquid nitrogen or gases in liquid states, yes they work well. However this is generally used for extreme OC test

I just removed the three 85mm fans with their plastic cage from my loud AMD R9-390 and replaced them with three 120mm arctic F12 PWM PST fans that I fixed with plastik straps. Thanks to PST all three fans can share one unused 4pin connector on the mainboard and I can change the speed in the BIOs or with the driver-software for the board for all three fans. Dropped the temp from 90°C to 65°C and the fans are really quiet at 1000rpm. The size got up from a two slot board to a two and a half slot board. No need to waste more place with a big CPU-Cooler. I like to think that would work with the card in the video too.

if you watched the whole video you could've seen you didn't need to use a cnc machine 10:07 you can get those for super cheap too and you don't have to go as crazy as linus did. you could install a smaller cpu cooler you idiots and you can buy your own heatsinks for CHEAP.

Its sooo crazy, how u rape some expensive hardware....u never paid for....

At about 7:06 go to 0.25 speed and you can see something fall down, its pretty easily visible on the right side of Linus' shirt, is that snot or something falling from the ceiling? o.0

Did the same (put massive CPU cooler to GPU core) almost 12 years ago.

I am using the Morpheus 2 with my 1080 TI at 70°C maximum and 700 RPM, thats cool enough for me, a big tower cooler wouldnt fit in my Phanteks P600S anyway. :D

Interesting. I recall once when I worked in an industrial sized freezer warehouse, I looked up to see where the cooling was coming from. I saw fans. Made of some kind of metal. Looked like aluminum finish. Plastic fans are not ideal. I'm sure they can come up with something like a thin copper fan right?
