Well, my latest overclocking endeavor may seem more than a little crazy but I just happen to have a window AC unit that I can use... It needs a minor repair, but was replaced so now I'm starting out on building a Phase Change system .


So, first off: Taking the cover off of the AC unit.



Now I'm doing a ton of research on how to turn that ^ into a PC-cooling monster. So far, I have found a few things- a design for an evaporator (CPU heatsink) and mostly have managed figuring out the ideas of how an AC unit works. My next step is to figure out how to drain the loop safely & figure out what type of pump it uses... and then to find a way to attach a hose somewhere to lead up to the evaporator.


If anyone has expertise on this, I'll be happy to hear it! In the meantime, I'll keep working on this and keep the post updated on my progress!
