Odd Cooling

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Was browsing my local kijiji section and came across this thing I had to laugh at it but was wondering if anyone has seen/built something like this.

That is pretty much a home built (maybe) chiller

Looks like a Peltier / phase-change unit to me.

They're around, and have been in use by enthusiasts for a while. I'm tempted to take a dive, but need to understand it a bit better before I make the commitment.

They are commonly available off the shelf. Example :

doh.gif I mixed up phase-change and TEC somehow in my head. I tip my hat to you for the correction. redface.gif

It's just a home made phase change unit. Think air conditioning, now think instead of cooling the air it cools the CPU. It's the exact same concept.

With an air conditioner it uses a compressor to compress a liquid. ( Big shocker there I know) As you compress a liquid it's temperature will increase, and when it decompresses it's temperature goes back down. An A/C unit uses a condenser, which is just a radiator with high pressure chambers, to cool the now heated and compressed liquid. Then it uses an "Evaporator", which is just a radiator with a lot of surface area, to rapidly decompress the liquid, thus resulting in very low temperatures.

With a phase change unit, it simply replaces the evaporator with a block that goes directly over the CPU.

They're not that odd, in fact OCN has an entire forum dedicated to them. XD
