    I think you could probably just attach a usb fan to the big block and skip the water cooling. Not as fun of a video, but I think it would work just as well and actually be somewhat mobile.

    So in your opinion, which phone currently has the best built-in cooling system? aka the phone can keep its temp low and the CPU won't throttle at all after hours (or at least minutes) of playing some games?

    not so effective on all devices, some phones are build with their socs facing the base metal frame where the screen sits in while the back of the pcb where the back cover is. actually consist of other electronics that does not need colling, like passive components, connectors, fingerprint sensors and other stuff

    Linus talks about how he had water-cooling 10 years ago, and here I am sitting here taking out high performance extra loud fans from a broken server to help my computer survive the summer. (They're loud like the ones Linus used in some of the videos, I don't remember the names tho, something "-inator" or like that)

    So now that some extra thermal headroom is established, when is the video coming where you over clock? Depending on the folks over at XDA, eventually the tools for rooting, kernel tomfoolery, and overclocking are only a matter of time.

  • EggyRepublic
    EggyRepublic Před dnem

    They should release a gaming phone where on the bottom there's a water in/out plug that you can plug in to a cooler the same way you plug a charging wire in. Maybe even build the cooler into a phone case. Active liquid cooling phone case, doubles as a portable fan when it gets hot outside.

    So maybe dont put it on a sponge to fo tests, because you insulated it termaly, and it dosnt happen like that in real life.

    i need help! i have an asus g11cb_g11cd series with an i5-6400 cpu which i would love to upgrade from 2.7ghz to something in the 3ghz range if not higher. can this even be done or should i just gut the GPU and RAM and piece everything else out. also is the stock PSU going to be good enough to upgrade to a better processor? I honestly didn't know where else to ask this, Ive tried searching around but haven't gotten any answers that i want to hear haha. any help appreciated. if i had the cash to just try it i would but im not oozing with spare cash right now ( and havent been in two years ) so i dont want to just buy an i7 and throw it in if its not going to post. Ive read updating the bios would work, but Ive also read that it doesn't so im on the fence about spending $300+ if its just going to fail.

    upon replacing my lg v30's screen, i found there are already heat pipes inside along with thermal paste. pipe runs down the phone towards charge port. frame besides the back and front is all aluminum, could possibly utilize the aluminum to create a wrapping heat pipe to cool frame it's self. have an email i can send frame pics to? we can possibly take this idea a little further
