    You know they make industrial chillers that get massive. I worked with them to chill matching networks.

    spray all the mobo with the pieces already tested (heated dryied) with coating spray, AND CANIBALIZE IT!!! Make it so cold and so oc that it became a water moisture generator... Coating with nano 3mm spray coating should do it.

    What would happen if you put a water block on every component that would need cooling and put the whole thing in a vacuum chamber? i'd assume it would be hard for condensation to form in next to no atmosphere

    Invert the entire assembly so that the motherboard is backside up. That way condensation will drip down on the desk away from all the components

    How about building up a rim around rhe entire cpu block to catch the condensation? You could even run a drain line off that modified cpu block to carry the condensate away safely

    i wonder, what would happen if you do this same test, but in the oil pc? i mean, humidity can't condense there, but still can cool those tubes as much as the machine possibly can

    Using an actual water cooler you don't need antifreeze, it doesn't provide any better heat transfer. Only reason you use antifreeze in vehicles is to keep the water in your cooling system from freezing in winter temps. Using purified water instead would probably provide more heat transfer due to the water being thinner then a antifreeze/water mixture. I can see why you used antifreeze in your homemade build as the water could've froze up and clogged the passage ways.
