The Miracle Thaw!
« on: August 06, 2013, 02:40:07 PM »
I won one of these at April's family reunion:



It's pretty cool. 

I dropped an ice cube on it and it melted in under 10 seconds.

Guess what I'm using it for?   :lol:

I've seen them on tv before.... What's the science behind it?  How can an ice cube melt in 10 seconds?

It's a new metal they got now. It's called aluminum. Get yourself a 8"x8", or any size really, piece of aluminum, the thicker the better, and slap an ice cube on it and watch it disappear. Been thawing meat on a 3/16" piece of aluminum for a long time. It transfers heat,or cold, really well.

Of course not, only traditional witches can be burned at the stake. Liberal witches melt in water. Source the Salem witch trials for conservative witch removal,and the wizard of oz for liberal witch removal. It's just a video you say? Yes,but, liberals DO live in a fantasy world.

What a waste of 50 gallons of gas.

A while back I got inside my laptop to clean it out. Latent A+/Net+ skills. I found that the heatsink is only attached to the processor and does nothing to cool the DIMMs or the video chipset -- that's all supposed to cool through the bottom of the computer, and the bottom of the computer is not good at that.

Since getting an Android tablet, the laptop as pretty much been a desktop. I set the laptop on The Miracle Thaw and CoreTemp reports a drop in temp of about 10C. More importantly, when temperature does spike, it cools back off much faster than it did previously and without the fan kicking on as hard or as long as it used to.

I've used many, many cooling pads over the years. The most effective ones are the ones with LOUD fans. I used to hook them up to switched power supplies so I could go from a couple volts to 6.5 volts. (They're designed to run at 5v, but they lasted.)

This is a massive heatsink, and works really well. The one problem was that I had to raise part of the laptop just a little because the fan intake is on the underside of the computer. It's not making full contact at all points, but is doing an excellent job anyway.

Regards,

Josh
