TECs are MAGIC though! We all know how refrigeration works, but a little plate thingy that gets cold for no reason!?!

Ok ok, joking aside... I really had a lot of fun using TECs with massive air coolers and was even able to somewhat efficiently cool an old sempron socket 754 with one! I have done even more research now and think they have good potential as add-ons to watercooling systems -- but not in a chiller. I would just get an extra radiator or two and cool the hot side of TEC with the loop. This is definitely more compact and potentially quieter than phase or a chiller.

All that being said, I think phase change is my next extreme cooling project so take my TEC "recommendation" lightly. thumb.gif

Heh heh

I always pictures some tiny automatons in there, shovelling ice cubes from freezers on one side of the TEC to the other. Or maybe little elves.

But you're right, it does always come down to whatever works better for the person, the application, etc.

Got to admit, there have been times I've thought about a cascade with TECs. they make them for really low load (virtually nothing) applications and made well, you could get a -150 result. Just couldn't do anything with it.

But I'm sure one day I'll scrounge up enough TECs to make one. Just hate to spend much on it, since it's not really 'useful' for anything I do.

A -100c mini fridge could work with TEC though, since it takes very little load to run one if it's sealed well. Would take forever to cool anything you put in there with any mass at all to it.

I could store my own sperm samples for future generations biggrin.gif God help 'em.

You could always use a mixing valve in the chiller loop to combat the whole condensation problem. That is, if your goal isn't to go as cold as possible.
