For a heatpipe that is connected to a 50 Celsius object on one side,and a heatsink at 23 Celsius air at other side, what fluid filling will give better heat conductivity? Plain water, or some kind of refrigerant like Perflenapent/perfluoropentane ( c5f12 ) that boils at 28 degrees Celsius?
I saw on Linus youtube channel that he showed some prototype pc from a new company that uses refrigerant to have something like pumpless cooling - really just a flexible heatpipe filled with some unknown refrigerant connected to conventional watercooling style cpu block and large passive heatsink.
I read that water is the best fluid for heatsinks that operate at room temperature. What is truth, is water best or could some kind of refrigerant,possibly one with boiling point above room temperature but bellow cpu block temperature cool better than water?
