Does anyone tried this ?
I was wondering.
Lets take a cupper tube from the local hardwareshop (about 10 meters)
Bend it like a spring, with a diameter of 12cm. The 'spring' will be about +-30cm high.
10 meters of cupper tube with a diameter of 10 mm. If I am not wrong this will be about 31,40 mē cooling surface! ( pi x diameter) x length. = 3,14 x 10mm x 1000mm = 31,4 mē
Will this spring be better than an ordinary 'cheap' black ice pro heatsink?
I have no idea how much cooling surface a normal heatsink has.
Has anyone tried this already? Or give some arguments why it will work or not.
Thanks in advance

See this done years ago at the dawn of water-cooling. Of course it works, just looks like sh_t :grin:

I think it looks cool
and yes it works but i doubt it would cool wel, surface isn't the only factor that matters...
I couldn't find the page I was looking for (a guy that makes his own pelts, temp probes, etc. just nuts ) but I found this link and it's pretty much what you were planning I think : http://www.fortunecity.com/skyscrape...ngproject.html

With some plexi, I think this will be a nice project to build.
Still, I would like to know if this could be better than an ordinary radiator?
Since, I am planning to rebuild my watercooling, I was wondering if this could be a nice 'project'. Perhaps cooling without any fan.
Can you find something back about this way of cooling ?

You are right, this guy has a lot tested and builded. A nice site because this guy gives you lots of information.
Still, I am looking for informatie if my project can succeed.

It would cool, but very small it isn't going to be
Don't forget with normal radiators u have a lot of alluminium or copper fins between the pipes, and thats what makes them so effective.
But u could always try, it would be nice to see something like that in action
