Hi, I'm sorry that I haven't posted for some time, but there haven't been that much to post about, since my time have been very limited, and the free time have been used to get another "chilling" project up and running with some TECs.
You can se more of that here, and since the chiller will be used on this build, there will also be some smaller updates in here (but the main info and question will be in the other thread, thanks
The following was planed for the SG09 build long ago to get some lower temps when at home, but still able to travel with the case without this big side show
And yes, that is a Phobya External Radiator "Bench edition" stand, along with a D5 pump in a EKWB X-RES 140mm housing that have been spray painted white.
The stand only comes in black, and I ran out of paint on a Saturday, and haven't come much further since
BUT it will get painted just as white as all the rest
Then pump will also get a slap of paint. Not sure if I should go green on it or white like the rest.
(what do you think?)
On the other side we got a 9x120mm radiator that is 45mm thick, along the 120mm fans from Antec
I think that the plexi fans are looking really well with the rest, and I will look much better when the radiator stand will get all white.
The fans (there are 47 more of the) are towards the TEC experiment and was sponsored by Antec along some other stuff like a lot of thermal paste.
So a big thanks to Antec
Another package came this Friday including some of the best looking fittings right now (I do to think that acrylic tubing and fittings looks nice, but for me Monsoon fittings and their colors are stuff
So thanks to Monsoon for sponsoring some fittings for the chiller project
If we take a closer look at the pump/reservoir, you can see that it's not normal water cooling water that is running round in the little loop.
I have always liked the way that some colorful crystals was floating around in a liquid up in chemistry lap.
But most of those crystals was either expensive or very toxic
So when I saw that Mayhems had made a similar product for watercooling, I new I had to have it.
The liquid is Mayhems Green Aurora.
(pump settings was "1" = the lowest)
But the Aurora is not ideally for this chiller experiment, so when that time comes, I will have found something more suitable.
The Aurora is for the looks in the SG09 build
Not sure if it will work as planed due to the may 90 degrees fittings, radiators and blocks, but I have to test right ;-)
Also to me it is a little to white, so I will properly get a green dye to make it a bit darker (if it works).
Doesn't those beautiful Monsoon fittings deserve a picture in focus?, I do believe so
Now before we end this update, some of you may think; "that painting will get you higher temps".
And yes, that is correct, BUT the SG09 builds hardware (it will maximum become two R9 290 and a I7 3930k) doesn't really require a radiator like that (I think the 180mm and 120mm rad should do the job), but I really like silence (or my girl does), so I got the radiator just to be sure (it will get quick release fittings so that when going for a Lan, it's easy to disconnect, and I think the two other rads will cool the setup just fine
As for the chiller, one of these is clearly not enough for the amount of heat I will put into that loop (properly around 4000W).
But more on that in the other thread
Next is to get a new PWM DDC pump (the other one burned on me) and get the things installed and hooked up to the loop (needs a few holes to drill) and get the plexi glass windows cut out and installed.
Also some sleeving needs to be done
Just as a closing picture (don't stare to long at it), the structure of the radiator stand and radiator in background:
