there are several things, I will try to complete on this build including trying to get it to look better, this is my hobby so I am always changing it around.

at some point I will attempt to get all of this hardware into two large cube style PC cases, like the ones that mountain mods make, but that is a project for another day.

Completely understand. It looks like you have a lot of good ideas for this build and I'm glad I could help with at least the aesthetics tongue.gif I'd like to see it if you go that route.

what I am working on, still getting the electrical system done, it is coming along, and to me it is starting to look nice

Fusing a circuit is not hard.
Calculate the maximum watts estimated to draw. Get the correct ammount of amps fuse and wire it in series
Lets say we are going to draw a estimated maximum of 2000Watts. Our power supply when in shrot circuit can give out 2200Watts maximum
Lets say if the wattage hits 2100W the fuse will blow.
So lets calculate 2100W/220V = 9.545
Therefore we need a 9.54Amps fuse wired in series in the 220V mains

Thats some awesome overkill cooling for the relays. I rekon it will be awesome addon to the aesthetics thumb.gif

ok so yea they are overkill, but my hope is that they will support a duel task, by not only keeping the relay cool, but also act as a evaporator for any humidity that may freeze on the clay right next to the TEC where the clay stops, at the transition point.

man I wish I had those heatsinks for my air cooled chiller, what are they from? looking good

there the real cheap cooler master CPU coolers

Cooler Master GeminII S524 Version 1 and 2 CPU Air Cooler with 120 mm Silencio FP Fan RR-G5V2-20PK-R1

I got them on sale a couple of years ago for $19.99, I have 3 systems that are water cooled and I like to have air backups for them if needed.
and now I have no backups eek.gif

looks better than my old AMD HD6850 heatsinks that I use with 140mm fans, they are getting pretty toasty cooling the hotside of some low powered TEC's.

that is pretty cool idea, and good use of useless hardware, tongue.gif .I have a lot of unused video card air coolers sitting in a box, that I still have not really found a good use for.

I did try once to do something with useless hardware, I used 12 big water video card radiators, to create one 12-way paralleled radiator.

it works, and it has about the same cooling capacity of a single 360mm radiator, for only about 4 times the cost. doh.gif

well all of this is eraser putty and it is for all of the tight spots, this stuff is easy to mold into any area.

I have 10 times this amount in molding clay, for insolating every thing after the putty has been applied.

yeah i threw out my bigwater 120mm "water cooling kit" 3 months after i bought it many many years ago, it was useless, I should have kept it though as it would have been ideal for cooling the hotside of a 12715 TEC at low volts, thats a nice contraption you made with the 12 way parallel setup, fun to try even if it doesn't work well.

that's a serious collection of eraser, I only needed 2 small blocks to do my motherboard. I'm hesitant to move to a chiller just because of the sheer amount of insulation involved.
