    You should try to water cool a pc with out fans by hooking up The reservoir to a running tap and dumping The water after The heat block into The drain!

    I actually did this in 2014. It worked. The tower reached up to the ceeling. I needed to disassemble it and rebuild it because we moved. The radiator(audi tt) is still cooling my cpu and graphics card( ryzen 7 1700x and 1080ti.) Temps under full load are under 70 celsius for both. And you only need two 230mm fans for airflow. I use 2 laing ddc pumps and copper piping

    You guys weren't even trying this time. I kept thinking you were about to get your shit together and fix the leaks, but a solution and a proper test never materialized. And while the frame setup was a great idea, it had no reason to be on top of a case like that, and you could've taken it down at any time. I wanna see you revisit this and do it justice. I love your videos Linus, and I think you'd appreciate the honesty.

    Linus. Your conclusion is false. You rushed this and constantly poured fresh cold water into the system. You would need to run the stress test for a long time without changing water until water temps don't increase anymore. Cool idea. Bad execution.

    How do all these guys have absolutely no concept of what a transmission cooler does? Running the output water through the trans cooler is the equivalent of using a ice cube to cool off a ice cube. I'm not even going to mention the lack of understanding in pipe fittings. Everything they needed could have been found at the hardware store.

    You look absurd in your masks, especially after you took it off specifically to expel the contents of your lungs, with force, through the radiator and into the room.
