You'll find once you start building that even the bigger rotaries don't give you very much. An extra 200W of power and heat to deal with for 2-5C and 25W of load more. It gets ridiculous in a hurry. Where are you located? We might be able to help you source up some decent parts.
As always, it's less about what temperature you get to, as much as the load, once your in the subzero territory. There's a huge misconception that even 5C will get you anywhere more.
Most of the CPU temp will be the cause of thermal gradient and evaporator design anyway.
What about Gray Mole and his blending techniques getting him great temps @ 250w
I mean, I'm no Gray Mole...but that seems like hope.
Can you clarify the bold? I don't quite follow.
I'm located in SoCal, but the reason I'm interested in these parts is because the seller may be interested in trades...I don't have the cash right now to start dropping money on parts, especially a $250 lineset. A few bucks in materials, and a ~$30 compressor I can swing though.
So with your last statement, what you're saying is it's not about how powerful the unit is...it's about how efficient the transfer of heat at the source is?
Is a chilly1 style evap not all that great? My last unit had a chilly1 style evap, but it was an older unit and held maybe -30 on an i7 (I wouldn't know, but that's what the new owner tells me)
Pretty much, I want to be able to take the WR with my w3520...which was initially set using DICE. I just don't like the hassle of a Pot setup...
After that, holding an i7 ~5.3 would make me happy if it didn't cost an arm and a leg.Edited by fl0w3n - 5/20/11 at 1:14am
