This bong is virtually silent the water flows right down this screen stuff it expands the surface area for better cooling but the best part is the noise reduction.

Ok, got a question. Is the copper coil, a closed loop? ie:bong cools seperate coolant which cools computer, or is the the coolant from the computer sprays/dribbles through bong then is pumped back through computer?

Well I am using MBM so this is hardly conclusive but the temps before with the tbird @1.44 loading at 46°c now the tbird is @1.48 and its loading at 36°c.

The room is 26.1°c or 79°f.

I used a compu nurse to check my water temps after the comp was loading for hours and it was 5.4°c below ambient (room temp.) so it was 20.7°c or 69°f. This is 5.4°c below what the compu nurse measured quoted room temp it was actually measuring my room temp at 25.4°c.

Still wondering about the temp. drop?
The reason being I have a problem with inside "bongs".
The problems are :
1}excess moisture~ not a big problem in AZ, But in the PNW promotes mold, condensation, etc.
2} bacteria~ Remember legionaires disease: legionellia~ bacteria which grows in cooling towers (bong) causing severe pneumonia
3 Pumping all that crap in to my water block, leading to a stroke(blockage) [First the computer, then me!]
However I am thinking of a secondary system, as evaporative cooling can drop the fluid temp. below ambient.

46 - 36 = 10°C cooler according to MBM.

If you go to Home Depot or something to that affect they sell an additive for Humidifiers that helps impead bacterial growth not to mention I use deionized water to begin with.

In AZ its very dry and since I use central cooling even in our "moiste" season there will still be very little moister in our house.

<<This is 5.4°c below what the compu nurse measured quoted room temp it was actually measuring my room temp at 25.4°c.
That's what I was looking for.
I figured you would need the humidity in AZ. wouldn't work here very well, INSIDE.......... But thinking about running tubes out through the wall for summertime cooling.
I would use a sealed coil submerged in the water, with maybe a temp controlled pump to start the bong when it gets warm.
Really good idea you had, it's got me thinking

What sort of mileage do you get? ie: how much water per day/hour of on time does it use?

I use a little over a one gallon a day.

If I had the room I would use a bigger reservoir maybe even a 20-25 gallon fish tank .

1 gallon a day isn't bad, and means water is replaced every 2 days.
Unfortunatly if I did that here it would start to rain, IN THE HOUSE!
but I'm still thinking about it, maybe a inside bong that vents out throuh the wall, through a plastic dryer vent

hello T-Shirt, jbslow, welcome,
bong cooling is good. in real life I have built a few 'towers. one
flowed an even million gph. lots of water vapor too.
I agree with T-Shirt. my idea is to pipe outside to a 55gal bbl. with a copper coil inside. the temp of the H2O in the bbl will stay fairly constant if shaded during the PNW Summer it would
work real good if you used a smaller(say 25gal) barrell with 10gal
of cheapo antifreeze for win**r. no noise and no evap.
