/sigh.. I give up on the wall-of-text thing, is it so hard to edit down a quote?
Anyway, I've been trying to dig up this link, finally found it. This guy's been cooling his PC's with his swimming pool since 2006:http://www.thebuehls.com/pool_cooling/
And he managed it for < $400, it's a neat project at the very least.
plastic.elastic, I don't think anyone here is seriously
considering modifying a compressor-style AC unit to be water cooled by a pool. I'd be surprised if anyone was seriously
considering anything in this thread. Congrats for hitting 200 posts without pissing off an admin enough to get booted.
The pool idea makes a great easy-access heat sink if you've got one available. Sure during the summer raising your pool temp to 100F with a rack of miners isn't too great, but hey you can swim any day in November
I think i can count on a single hand the number of people I know with pools in CO, however (which is weird, it gets friggin hot here).
an excellent, cheap, and energy efficient way to cool your whole house if you've got the acreage for it.
