Forced Induction PC Cooling

at 7:15 am. Filed under Computer Hacks, Crazy Hacks, Insane Equipment

Adding lights, windows and paint to a computer case is cool but a turbocharger cooling system is over the top crazy.

“We thought a fast computer should have hot rod flames, working headlights, and a custom license plate. As for the cooling system, an LED case fan just wasn’t going to be original enough. Instead, our case fan is a turbocharger commonly found on late 1990’s Mitsubishi Eclipses and Eagle Talons.

Q: What PSI (how much pressure) does it run at?
A: None. The PC case isn’t sealed. The idea is to blow air through the case, not to pressurize it. If the computer’s case was sealed tightly enough to where pressure could actually build up, the side door would fly off and the USB cables would pop out.

Q: How fast does it spin?
A: 3500 RPM, which is nowhere near the speed it was designed to run at. However, it’s enough to move some air without having to worry about the bearings, which are designed to be water-cooled. Obviously, I’m not going to pump water through this thing. I think the project is ridiculous enough already. 🙂

Q: Does it really work?
A: Of course. It’s just not very practical, and I honestly don’t plan to run the “cooling system” on a regular basis, just once in a while for a laugh. “

    […] The Turbocharger: This guy had an old turbocharger lying around and decided to put it to good use, pumping air into his flaming hot case faster than any 90mm fan out there. […]

    This is not induction. Induction requires use of currents — fluid, electrical, or electro-magnetic waves — to pull mass/energy of that same qualification — fluid, electrical, or electro-magnetic waves — to or from an item. But, this system has air being mechanically moved to be heated by radiating heat from the heat sinks of the computer; none of that spells I-N-D-U-C-T-I-O-N to me.
    But, it is a cool idea.
