Is there a design guide available for the tower?
>> Currently we don’t have a design guide for a tower computer, but the basic principle is the same as a large tank, bring the coolant in the bottom and remove it near the top of the system. We place motherboards only in acrylic containers that look similar to a standard tower case and circulate the fluid through the acrylic container. The case has a removable top so that you can lift the motherboard up out of the case but it stays above it so that the coolant drips back down into the container. The circulation and cooling is accomplished via a small pump and some radiator fans, in larger systems we place the outside of the building to exhaust the heat.
What about the Capillary effect for cables etc.?
What about dust or other particles entering the fluid (especially regarding conductivity)?
As i could read in your website the expected lifetime of a server with 1 time fluid filling is about 4 – 8 years – is this with sealed or open case?
>> Open Tank
If the case is sealed is there any pressure valve or filtered opening required to regulate?
>> Yes if you use a sealed case you need a way to relieve the air pressure (if you have air remaining in the container) and also to accommodate the fluids expansion.
What is it about the warranty in your online shop? Is this for the fluid or for the devices in the fluid?
>> This is for the Fluid, device warranties are provided by equipment manufacturers and server resellers who have experience with SLIC and our coolants.
If I want to build a normal Gaming computer with LEDs and blinking motherboard and GPU in a big tower, how much fluid is required?
>> Typical 3-8 liters depending on the size of the case and motherboard, we’ve done it with only 1.5 liters with a very tight case.
Can I insert in the tower also the PSU of about 1000Watts (for example Be quiet! or other PSU ranging from 200 Watts to 1200 Watts) ?
>> Yes you can immerse the PSUs with no issue. Sometimes you need to disable the fans if the PSU is checking their rotational speed which will be less in fluid, but this only typically happens with high end PSUs.
How can the connectivity be ensured at the backside of the tower (for example connectin monitor via hdmi, power cable etc.)?
