Can you use a Aquarium chiller? - Page 3

post #21 of 41
from the builder
Quote:
The built in controller turns the compressor on/off as needed to
maintain temp. Water will flow through it regardless if it is in a
cooling cycle or not. There is no built in pump inside.

For ex. set it to 70F, once the temp goes above 70 it kicks on until
it drops to 70.
email him, or this is his letter to me.

is this the one you have from them? please advice. Thanhs


That is the unit I have from them. condensation can be a big problem with it, and I killed 2 video cards because of condensation.

to prevent condensation damage, I had to wrap the tubing and the Waterblocks with neoprene. I also coated the Mobo and video cards with conformal coating to prevent water damage.
that is why it make me sweat

would I go that far.... i'.m still debate alot lot about it.

But can it handle a constant load. Thats my question about it. I don't want to buy a $400 chiller and burn it out.

Then buy a phase for 600$

Submerge your mobo in a vat of mineral oil and run the phase to the CPU, the phase will also supercool the oil and chill the rest of your rig. + no condensation LOL

Build your own chiller. A 5000BTU window A/C unit's are around 100 bucks, mabye even cheaper (if you can still find them in the winter). There much more powerful than TEC's for around the same price (for tec's, you need the pelt, the coldplate and the 24v PSU for it to be effective, and yet, that will give -5c idle at best). There's a link in my sig to my waterchiller build, it's the next best thing to a phase setup.

It's way overpriced for what you get. I mean, it doesn't come with a pump, waterblock, or res. Not to mention it's only has a 1/4HP compressor.. The thing is 300 bucks overpriced. Good luck getting subzero with it.
