Noob way to do it with so much clothing instead of sealing pipe joints properly.

0:17 I do believe you'll find that more than "a minor challenge". 1:58 I don't believe that's a fairytale. Ever heard of the wisdom, "think before you swing"...? *smh*

Would very much like to see a fully sealed version of this. Perhaps get hold of a 12v car fuel pump too and run that instead of a regular water cooling pump.

With all the equipment you have you could have easily machined a adapter. 3D printing one and waterproofing it by melting the inside with hot air gun could also work. This concept definitely deserved a bit more time.

i'd like to see this done with some better adaptation of the radiator so it isn't pouring water everywhere. i bet this would work pretty well honestly.

With a radiator that big, ditch the case fans and just strap it to a box fan. Maybe use a piece or two of window bug screen as an air filter.

Yeah, the transmission cooler works by exchanging heat from the hotter oil into the relatively cooler water, so you're wasting your time there.

Once inspired by a younger Alex and Linus, I made a mineral-oil PC. at the time I was a tech for a car dealership, and radiators were easy enough to get ahold of. With some proper connections, I was able to make one into a cooler for the oil. 3 small things done differently, and this radiator build would have been even more successful, but probably not as funny. Love the "Mad Scientist" videos, always a treat and an inspiration.

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!

There are a lot more important problems with the approach here, but the one that really got me was: why not put the brown fans in a neat row in the middle?

i'm surprised they've never heard of the product called " Magic Wrap ". I've used it to temporarily seal everything from automotive to plumbing joints - even works on air compressor hoses.

Seems like most people in the comments are on the fence with this video, you either liked it for comedy or wanted to see a more polished version. I am in the latter camp I want to see a well thought out idea that has a logical implementation/testing

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

did u guys consider installing a single standard box fan to the side of the rad? might be better lol

if you had put a FLIR on it while putting water through you could maybe see the loop. Also, this thing needs to be mounted in a window with one giant fan
