A Narrative Diagram

Posted 07-24-2009 at 02:43 AM by Shingoshi

I'm considering this Shertech CHMNA56T for my pump:
Part No. 0474056
Vendor No. CHMNA56T
Horsepower 2
Voltage 115 / 230
Flow Rate 96 gpm
Maximum Working Pressure 91 Ft. Head
Height 7-1/2"
Length 14-7/8"
Material Noryl
Weight 39 lb

Performance - Standard Models (Water at 70˚)
HP** 2
GPM of Water at Total Head in Feet*
10 96
20 89
30 83
40 77
50 68
60 58
70 47
80 31
Max Head* 91
(Note: X refers to the motor supplied on the pump head. Pump performance is based on pump head, not the motor.)

Based on the (anticipated) number of processors in this system,
I think will be the best pump I could use.

Calculating the expense and performance of this pump against supporting five motherboards, and the cost of building comparable individual cooling-loops and cases for each, the efficiency of this build becomes immediately apparent.

Let's start with the orientation of the case in which these parts will fit. The case will be in a vertical position (standing against a wall) so that the inside of the top (back)* is facing the user, with the bottom (front)* removed.

* This case was meant to lay flat. So the bottom and top sections in a vertical orientation become the back and front sections. I originally intended to have the case simply tipped upward, with the bottom of the case (with it's wheels) facing the user. That would allow for easy movement from one location to another, by simply tipping the case towards you to roll it. But now that I've looked at the need to have a vertically oriented radiator for this build, I'm considering reversing this. So that the wheels would be facing the wall against which it is stood.

The pump will be mounted lengthwise along the bottom. Having the pump head to the left, and the motor towards the right. This will have the outlet of the pump pointing in the vertical. Mounted directly to the pump's outlet will be the 2083X injector (also in vertical orientation).

Drilled and mounted into the bottom of each reservoir will be a banjo bulkhead fittings. On the inside (reservoir) fitting will be mounted a nozzle. On the outside bottom of each reservoir will be the fittings to attach them inline (by one tee and one elbow) and will drain down into the suction of the injector. I'm planning on using a cone with three ports in it allowing for what I hope will be helical vortex.

A vortex in which that twisting stream of liquid flows to drain, will be modified somewhat to look like a corkscrew. This hopefully will happen due to the increased forces pulling the walls of the vortex off-center and downward, causing it to compress. So instead of being the near vertical column we expect, it should look more like a spring. Though the degree of compression in that helical vortex will likely vary.

What will happen is that the turbulent movement of liquid will cause more mixing and thus transfer of heat to the cooling process applied to this reservoir. This will happen because the vortex stream will move into regions it would not have otherwise entered. So while it will be very pretty to look at, it will also be very functional as well.

This is ironic. It could be that the computer which is meant to be a computational environment, becomes the target of it's own analysis.
