Home-made flexible heat pipes

   We had to stop air exhaust and solder joints anew three times… The reason was low quality of metal of which the deflectors were made. The matter was not bad soldering but namely the metal quality. I strongly recommend NOT using iron! Badly soldered fragments appear from nothing, as a result airtightness is broken and air exhaust becomes impossible. It’s very difficult to find minute cracks. To do that, you must generate overpressure in the pipe and dip it into water. The location of the crack can be found by bubbles, but they are very small and difficult to notice at once…

   We succeed in air exhaust only from the fourth attempt. Test the pipe again in a glass of boiling water. It works perfectly! The pipe bends almost to 90 degrees. And it springs funnily :)

 
    Because of troubles with airtightness we didn’t try the work of the pipe with a fuse… The first model, which doesn’t have deflectors, will work with fuse perfectly, no doubt. Second variant is not so unambiguous. We planned to make the fuse in the form of a ring and press it to the heat remover. I’m not sure whether this will work. I’ll give a report when we try doing this. The article was waiting to be published for two weeks while we were looking for appropriate copper deflectors without success…
But the primary goal of the experiment has been achieved. We made a working prototype of a flexible heat pipe which is good for processor cooling.
I wish everyone good modding SilentMods.com

Non-constructive thoughts about modding...

    All began when one day my neighbour, he is Automatic Control Engineer, came and started to beg me to give him one diode. When I asked him why, he typed modding in a search engine. And it had a great effect on me. I was sick about it. Maybe there is nothing accidental in the world and this modding seed fell into good soil. All my life I was interested in design.
