    • The thing is, I knew the cooler fan was dust-blocked for some time now, but never got around to cleaning it (it's necessary to take the motherboard out, which is a PITA). So when I got to watch a 4K/HDR movie tonight it kept tripping the thermal protection and shutting down. I knew I needed to clean it, but wanted to finish the movie first. Thus - a water cooling solution. Worked like a charm (2 liters of cold water is a massive heat sink).

      Finished the movie in peace, and then got the screwdrivers out and cleaned the damn thing. So now it doesn't look like a portable stove any more. :-)

    • How long does it take for the water to boil??

      I had a water cooled Power Mac many years ago - much to my regret. Stick with air cooled chips - DAMHIK 🥺

      The movie was finished before that, so I guess I'll never know, but definitely more than two hours. Wouldn't recommend as a kitchen setup. :-)
