    The Alienware Area 51m is a pretty fast laptop, but by combining our janky chiller and Steve's overclocking skills we think it can be way faster.

      take all the shit off the counter and pull a couple capacitors if you are trying to risk a comp and see more power levels

    Hi Linus, could you please, please rebuilt your teen built custom chiller but with acrylic casing and a variable dials to increase or decrease temperatures and have a huge radiator filled with either battery water or distilled water and some metal panels and RGB lighting?

    linus i think you should check the eurocom/ clevo with the i9 9900k cpu ,rtx 2080, as well the 780 watt power supply to pass your power limits

  • jaces990
    jaces990 12 days ago

    sad all this attention on a ALIENWARE , when clevo has been doing this since the sold the alienware brand to dell ..... most of the clevo systems , aka , sager, prostar,eurcom,and many other use the desktop cpu and desktop spec video cards full running , ... the p870tm1-g ran a i9 9900k oc and 2x gtx 1080 or 1 rtx 280

    I tried and tried to use the intels extreme utility. For some reason I always got worse cpu scores than stock. When I went back to traditional bios overclock I was able to get significant performance increase while remaining cool on my 9900k.

    A mill alone won't tap acrylic. Mills spin one way, threading out of a hole you need to spin backwards IE how a drill works. You need a self reversing tap head on it as well or you'll just rip out the threads you put in when you pull back up. Enjoy buying a Tapmatic, they're straight up $1000. I use one every day at work on acrylic.
    Or just buy a ten dollar tap bit and put in a drill and do it by hand.

    Um, I'm American. Do other Americans use Fahrenheit for component temperatures? How the hell do you even measure those against everyone else using Celcius? Fahrenheit is for the outside, ya dummies. If you're going to use our weird imperial measurements, at least do it where it's appropriate.

    After so many years Linus you need to show us a custom loop or at least use a cooling block that doesn't have tubes coming 90° off a motherboard you can get them with tubes coming parallel to the board...

    You cannot touch the compacitor even when the AC unit is off. It will have to be discharged first.

    I would love to see a mashup! Use your subzero cooling system to cool a mineral bath that houses all the components! AND WE SHALL CALL IT "THE ARCTIC OIL SPILL"! You should be able to run the coolant through radiators in the mineral oil bath to drastically bringing the entire system's temp down! In theory this should also prevent any moisture buildup on the components as the outside of you tank is where the system would build condensation /sweat.

  • Ogherwin

    Why can’t y’all figure out a way to mount that unit the correct orientation so that the sweat from the cooling block would drip harmlessly away from the comp?
