Puget's Mineral Oil Computer; Two Month Update

Posted on Saturday, July 21 2007 @ 13:16:11 CEST by


Remember Puget Custom Computers' aquarium computer? They have posted an update...
The biggest issue with this setup is that there is inadequate heat dissipation. The mineral oil has a terrific specific heat capacity, which means that it takes a very long time to reach peak temperature -- about 12 hours. However, that temperature was too high, at 88C. On the other hand, we had absolutely no problems with stability with over a month of usage at those temperatures. Our theory is that while the overall temperature was hot, the oil did a good job of making sure everything was a very consistent temperature. With a normal air cooled computer, you have a handful of hot spots. With the oil eliminating these hot spots, we had no problem running a rock solid system.
Check it out over here to see how they solved the heat issue.
