    Soo, to take another item everywhere i go, such as, a radiator, with a fan on it, tubes.. Why would anyone want this lol. Fck luggin round all that shit. I mean, being a PC freak my whole life, phones today, for example, samsung galaxy s10. Are powerful asf. And dont get very hot. The only way to avoid cooling issues in the future as cpus get more powerful, is to redesign them. Light....
    Light based processing. Its in the works... Light doesnt produce heat. Atleast, only the source would and for a CPU it wouldnt need a lot. Theres a few of these in development, intels doing it, AMD is doing it, SinTech AU is doing it, i dont beleive qualcomm is but anyways.
    At the moment theres only one thats fully functional but its a big mess. Its physicall big like a chip the size of a car bonnet. Many wires around hanging round. Of course todays CPUs were once in a similar state. Light travels muuuuuch faster than electricity in a silicon based CPU. Lights instant, atleast at that distance to the next "transistor or whatever they will be called" It wouldnt suprise me if this actually is around but companies are so money hungry today theyl hid tech for tomoro just to get rid of todays stuff. But who knows. How i got from watercooling to that idk. Wait, yes, cause well, no heat, light isnt effected by heat, youd have a chip, with no heatsink at all. And crysis will run at 78,000 FPS lol

    Linus, this type of waterblock are usually used in Chinese Farming phone usage. They use watercooled phones because they are charging all the time and loading spam for make money. I think it’s not designed for Mobile usage.

    You guys should make a water cooling fitting for the phone with bigger tubing. Not that there would be much difference at all since that one already seems to work, but it would be an interesting project, and would show a more practical use case scenario where someone could essentially just pop on a case and go for long mobile gaming sessions without throttling performance loss.

    Does this mean you'll find a phone that you can fit a cooling plate on the inside of the phone and cut holes in its chasis? Then overclock the processor and see how far you can boost it? That could be cool!

    For as much heat transfer as water has, you don't need the radiator. The water pump on its own should be enough for a week's worth of gaming from a phone at least.

    So.... I may be wrong, but didnt you run the first round of tests with the phone laying on the table, with the back literally just on that pad or whatever it was the entire time.. Then the second round of tests you had the phone in your hand and in the air, and not on the pad. Maybe the phone was cooling better because it wasnt laying on the pad like the first round of tests?

    I think a heatsink with a fan would do just as much, be a couple centimeters thick and potentially dry your fingers with the exhaust air.
    I've got a Motorola Moto so a Mod would be a simple snap on with a battery and fan and heatsink. It would be very easy to make.

    In this video and others you endorsed Pulseway and in the enforcement you said that on of the devices you could control was Mac OS. Based on your recommendation I stalled Pulseway. After a couple hours they called me to talk about the free trail. They informed me that Pulseway does not support Mac OS.

    This is rediculous. Phones should be able to cool themselves off and be engineered in a way where heat dispersion is optimal like on the Red Magic 3.
    Please make a review of that phone.

  • Léo777

    The assembly of this thing is disgusting for smartphone, how can you imagine a liquid cooler on a plastic hood is ridiculous, and if the builders thought to "air" the CPU / GPU correctly to start, and if android did not have its Parameters open to everything, no doubt that telephones would heat less, they only have to cool them ... and think about changing OS also.

    Cool test! They really need to be refreshed.
