      Sir, I would like to ask if it would be possible for me to get more information on this as I would like to build a CAD model for this and try for simulation in Ansys. Would appreciate any help.

    Still hate how great you are at this stuff. What's next!? A light that spins conducting as much energy as it's using to power a motor that raises a desk when the sun rises and lowers the desk at sunset while feeding a plant that hangs over the monitor?

    well if your target is 80c, or even 90c at max load, then you can reduce the size of this thing quite a bit. One thing contributing to great cooling capabilities is the amount of space around the computer components. In an average case there's barely any room, but here there's tons. You could reduce this down quite a bit I think and still get impressive results, especially if you play with lighter and less conductive materials, or bigger heat sinks. Also what about a hybrid that does include some ultra quiet fans... I think this way this thing could become quite tiny and you could even have the panel at the bottom move way faster. The case doesn't have to be made of such thick wood either, there are far lighter and thinner components out there. Anyway, just some things to think about. Very cool idea and very impressive achievement! I would like to know how much it costs to run though... water pumps seem more power hungry than fans to me.

    Some of the closeups of the old acrylic tube after having broken almost looks like they've been scored a bit. I wouldn't be surprised if that contributed to its failure. It also appeared that it happened at a tube's end, maybe the water pressure is higher at the ends as the bellows changes direction.

    Might be impractical, but it is still a nice piece of furniture or piece of interior design... put some dimmed rgb lights inside it and hoook up the monitor with a very long cable. Use wireless keyboard andmouse. And this could very well function as a daily computer at home, or at the office.

      What? Not at all. Ryzen processors gain very little from manual overclocking compared to its own Precision Boost and modern GPU's boost clock are close to maxing out the frequency, often banging up against the power limit. Only way you are going to get any meaningful performance gain with manual overclocking over the automatic ones these days, is doing extreme overclocking with exotic parts. Lot's of builders have said this for a while now; manual overclocking gives you little to nothing on modern hardware with the risk of unneecessary heat from pushing the voltage. In terms of the temps on this build with a very modest pump and a single 360 (or 420, can't quite make out the size) radiator, they aren't bad at all. You might get a couple of degrees from switching to 3 high RPM fans but that's about it. He tested the bellows up against 4x140 Noctua fans and saw similar results - you would only be able to mount 3 (if this is a 420 radiator). These temps are most definitely not SUPER high or really high. Ultimately this was also never a question of "is it better?" but rather "can it be done?". The sheer size and impractiality alone pretty much eliminates it from ever being "better" than fans.
