My Computer

My computer's water cooling system hasn't been working as well as it should. First, I built my computer myself and installed a water cooled system. It works the same way the cooling system in your car works. Only it is not under pressure.

The water is isolated from the electrics. So, it's perfectly safe. Also, Apple Computer's top of the line G5 uses a water based cooling system. The whole system is homemade except the water block which is made by Danger Den, which cools the processor. The radiator is a copper heater core from a car. The water pump is a pond pump which was also bought at Danger Den. I made the resevoir from an electric conduit box.

There in lines the problem. Over time the lid has cracked thus allows water to evaporate. When water level gets low enough the pump sucks air into the system. The problem with that is when air seeps into the system the cooling effectiveness declines. So I bought a new resevoir from Danger Den. It fits in a standard 5.25 inch slot so it should be more convienient to fill. Here is a photo: Bay Resevoir.

electric bicycles and related concepts and issues should be at the forefront of any responsible social discourse. If you share this view, contact jhrmsy@yahoo.com to discuss commonalities and possible collaboration. Any future sustainable community will of necessity need to include electric bicycles as part a workable infrastructure. My beginning entry into cyberspace can be found at http://www.myebikes.com.
