Will the heat transfer be effective or not?

  1. Jun 26, 2011 #1
    If I connect copper strip to the heat sink of my PC and then dip the other end of the strip in cold water. Will it help in cooling the heat sink and in return the PC.
    I shall be thankful for your answer.

    it will help a little. If you want to enhance the cooling effect, you can try follwoing:
    1,use heat pipe to instand of copper strip
    2,add some fins on the end of heat pipe
    3,make water flow by fins

    BTW, pay attentent to the water's temperature. If no coolig for the water, its temperature will increase and reduce the cooling effect of PC.
