    This was a mistake on my part. I incorrectly stated that the CPU would consume 100 watts of energy per second, which is obviously not realistic. I should have said 100 watts per hour which is about 0.028 watts / hour. All my really simple calculations still hold true though.

    lets also say for ease of discussion that at a rate of 100w/h the CPU reaches a temp of 100C, 1w/h per 1c (not accurate)

    now lets put a stock heatsink on and it dropps the temp down to 80C, that means 20w/h is being drawn from the CPU and transferred to the air

    now compare that to water, where the CPU temp drops to 50C, meaning 50w/h is being removed and transfered to the air
    This is wrong. CPU consuming 100w/h means that's it's putting out about (slightly less then) 100w/h of heat all the time. All of this heat must be drawn away and transferred to the air, not just 20w/h or 50w/h like in your examples. If the amount of heat moved away was less then what the system was putting out it would over heat infinitely.

    if the CPU only had 100 watts of thermal energy, then the air temp would equalize over time, however, since entropy is cancled out by the fact that the CPU continues to generate 100w/h a waterloop will continuously output 30w/h more into the air than the heatsink will

    this means that if your air is closed off, your room will heat up approximately 30w/h faster with a waterloop than with a heatsink, but your CPU will be cooler, that is until the potential difference between the radiator and the air is eliminated and the rad stops transferring energy (pretty much impossible)

    with an additional 30w/h of thermal energy in your room vs a heatsink, it gets warmer and you get uncomfortable
    This just doesn't make any sense. If the computer was running for 2 hours it would have 160 watts of thermal energy stored inside the system if the air cooler only removed 20w/h. In 3 hours there would be 240 watts left and in 4 hours 320 watts. See where this is going?

    if the CPU was a closed system and only contained 100 watts of energy total, and did not generate more, then the same amount of energy would be transfered to air and the only difference would be in how fast it is transfered, but a CPU is not a closed system, so the 3rd law of thermodynamics does not apply
    Why the hell not? And for that matter, explain to me how third law of thermodynamics would even apply on our layman napkin math conversation of the subject?

    If you must insist on using a non-sanctioned sitting apparatus, please consider the tensile strength
    of the materials present in the object in question in comparison to your own mass volumetric density.

    In other words, stop breaking shit with your fat ass.

    Damn man, you need to upgrade/buy a new build ><
    Unless you dont game all that much.

    Upgrading costs money, I don't have much so I get to get a part here and a part there when I can. And I do game alot, i'm just broke 99% of the time

    Indeed! Got it from a friend that broke the connector that goes from the headset to the xbox controller, so i just got a soundcard and a cable and voila, awesome gaming headset.

    I love Eurotruck, even if it's just with M&KB. Something to sit back and relax with and eventually nick the corner of a building and go into a incoherent rage because your run was going perfect before that point

    Seems like this thread is getting buried, we're 4 pages in the computer forum as of now.



    Also, switched to the Moto G from the G2

    My room is still a little chilly during summer, so no :P

    I plan to use the poop brown fans for my upcoming server, and the PPC (Black) for my NCASE M1 rig

    Thats my setup, after just finishing the build, so not all tidy yet.
    The pad under the keyboard is to stop it clicking on the table, heavy cat broke one of the small legs, when jumped on it, planning on buying a big mouse/keyboard pad.

    CPU - i5 4670k - still waiting for Frio Extreme to arrive.
    RAM - 2 x 4gb Corsair vengance CL9, low profile, big ass CPU cooler arriving.
    GPU - Asus GTX 760 OC
    Board - Z87 Gryphon
    PSU - Fractal Design R2 750W
    Case - Full tower CM Haf X, with some new coolers inc, and nice tidy cable management inside.

    Peripherals :

    Logitech : G430 Headset, G600 Mouse, G105 MWF edition keyboard ( came very, very cheap ).
    Dell S2740L screen.
    And yea, some very old, but very functional, and proven GREAT Altec Lansing 5.1 system for movies, and when i don't feel wearing a headset.

    Awwww look at the cute little speakers Sorry, that just popped into my head and I had to say it. Very nice though and they match the desk at least.

    And that cord on the top of the computer is driving me nuts, what is it doing there? And I assume it's just the lighting, but the inside of your case looks like it has a orange piece of paper in it.

    The speakers are now rearranged with a bit more touch, and the orange is just the wooden floor reflection from the case window
    The cord on top is just two USB drives chillin', was booting Windows, and some drivers from it, they weren't mine, so i sat them there for a friend to come, and pick 'em um.
    I'll post more pics from the inside also, when I install the new CPU cooler.
    And the desk is just a big drawing board for architectural studies, that i nicked from my sister, cuz it has a big flat surface.

    I tell you it seems the hardest thing to do these days is fine desks with simply just a big flat surface. All these desks want to be so complicated these days.

    Exactly, If you want something like this, you have to have it custom made, or to have a sister who doesn't need it anymore
    And its pure wood, so it is quality shit also.
