    Cooling of a different kind...

    After all the searching ive done to reassure myself that my P4 will have adequate cooling i thought about this interesting little product. As for drag racing i have a couple buddies that have this system installed and they said it produced an extememly noticible difference in performance. Well mp3car isnt really about racing but its still related to performance.

    This system uses the cryogenic properties of CO2 to cool the intake charge to get more air into the intake manifold. They claim and it has been tested to reduce air temperature by 60%. The CO2 is passed through an aerodynamic bulb mounted inline with the intake piping which causes it to freeze and reduce the air temperature.

    Now, for the price this site is offering i'd say its only worth getting if you were into some form of racing and needed that bit of performance boost. With this you could just make a line splitter and run a separate solenoid or air valve to a modified (or CO2) heat sink mounted to the CPU. Otherwise a system using different size paintball CO2 canisters or possibly a larger tank that can be regulated to release CO2 based on the CPU temperature. One serious consideration is the rapid cooling of the CPU if it is too hot. That rapid of a temperature change i would imagine could crack a CPU in half.

    I've also heard rumors of adding nitrous to your ram, suposidly you can double the bus speed

    seroiusly, to even consider a cooling option that contains a consumable is totally extreme overkill, not to mention

    Nitrous oxide isn't flammable... unless you get it around 527 degrees F. And even then its the oxygen that gets released from the broken bond that can be used for combustion; still have to have some fuel. Hopefully none of our machines will ever attain the temp needed to break apart NO2.

    The temp of both when released in the atmosphere are so similar that there is no way you'd want to 4 dollars a pound (in some markets) for NO2 when CO2 is so cheap. Either way, carrying enough to make a difference when in use constantly, would be virtually impossible. Maybe for quick over clocking attempts, but not for constant use. However... using a big shot ever now and then (like when the cars been sitting in the summer sun all day) to cool the trunk, not the heat sink itself (condensation, anyone?), may have some benefits. Maybe I'll give this trunk approach a try and report back... need a kit for my intercooler anyway.

    He said consumable... not combustable

    Consumable means the material is used and goes away.
    Combustable means on fire... Combustion uses consumable fuel.

    I know. But isn't everything we do here an experiment? So why not? Besides it actually might be helpful when it gets 118F here in AZ in the summer...
