{ Build Log } Silverstone FT02 540mm RAD conversion **External Water Chiller Update** First post videos - Page 14

Ok wow, that is so awesome!

But does that mean you're not actually using your triple 180 rad anymore?

Also if you put your chiller all the way in the basement won't the water have warmed up a little again when the get at your case?

I've gotta say man, yours is one of the best looking builds I've seen, ever.

Thanks man....The cool part about how my house is my basement is right under my office. I ended up mounting the chiller on a stand so if you can picture it it is only about 3 feet lower than in the video. Right below th e floor but almost to the ceiling in the basement.
I am definitely using the the triple 180 RAD still. I'm sure that is the only reason I am getting these great numbers. The water leaves my case, hits the chiller and comes back through the RAD before it even hits the CPU.

that is probably the only reason you are not getting condensation on the CPU block, because the water is being heated closer to air temp in the rad, so any condensation is on the rad.

if you really wanted to push your limits, you should insulate the CPU socket and run the water straight to CPU and turn those temps way down wink.gif

Oh believe me....I want to..lol..I use this every day so the temps I'm getting work out great for me with a 4.5 overclock. The chiller will go down to 33*f and I have it set now at 70*f. Something to note is the temp probe is in the t fitting coming out of the RES so that temp I'm getting on the digital sensor I have installed is the water temp after it goes through the whole system. I'm liking this thing a bunch. smile.gif

I picked it up online for $350. to tell you the truth the one I have is total overkill. Its rated for a reef tank with a water capacity of 175 gal. I might have 1 1/2 gallons of liquid..biggrin.gif

I was just looking on ebay and found one that looked to be the exact same one you have for $175 used. If i had extra cash right now, that would so be mine.

Wow...thats a good price on this unit. The good part is if you ever do end up doing something like this, the chiller would work on future systems too smile.gif

Thank you very much. I do like how it turned out and I really dig using it. The funny part about having this hooked up is that its winter and cold here in NC. The chiller rarely even comes on. It will show its true colors this summer thumb.gif
