Element 29

Project “Element 29” (Periodic table number for Cu, Elemental Copper) came out of necessity as this heat would easily and quickly raise the office temperature to uncomfortable levels upwards of 28°C. This would be my second water cooling build ever where the first one was for i7 920 about 12 years ago. Things have changed quite a lot since then.

Most of the cooling solutions involve moving heat from component(s) to a heat sink and then exhausting it out of the computer chassis. Problem with this design is that the heat gets dumped in the same room from where it originates. The idea of utilizing an external heat exchanger (radiator) was born and the planning phase started around January 2021.
