Ice-Cooled Computer Cooler at 1.5c

I am pleased to report that I have developed
a href=”click here”>Ice-Cooled Computer Cooler /a> further to a stage, where the temperature of the cooling element comes down to as low as 1.5 centigrade. I have not yet applied it to my computer and I am hopping to apply it within the next two weeks.

I don't want to appear too skeptical, but why would I want an ice-cooled (presumably expensive?) CPU cooler, when my 3.2 GHz P4, overclocked to 3.85GHz, runs happily at 29 deg.C in a room ambient of
20 deg C ?

Hope you've got a tray underneath to catch all the condensation !!!!

I think HD at 1.5C will not boot up. It needs to be at appropriate temprature to reach the spin speed and enable the heads to read and write.

I may be wrong but my experience with Main Frams computer is so.

A Peltier device will do the job nicely, which is basically a heat pump click here

I have already found away to deal with the condensation. When I apply it to my computer I try my way to deal with the condensation. If my way didn't work I have to go for the tray.

I have calculated the cost of the first model. All parts cost retail price. Only one or two parts completely used, the rest a little piece of each of them used. Total cost of the parts used is around £15.00. But it has taken me hours to complete it. Obviously when produced by manufacuring process the cost comes down a lot.

Following on from zarobian the operating range for Maxtor hard drives is 5 - 55C.

Thanks for the info.

OK, I'll ask the obvious question....why would anyone need a computer that runs at 1.5C when they are designed to run at higher temperatures? The only time computers need to be very cold is when they ar running huge number crunching programmes and then they are nitrogen cooled.

I see from the we site it is patent pending. Can you give the reference?
