the next step is to install the radiators, build the frames for them, and complete the hot side of the loop.

some changes I may make on the cold side of the loop, I am considering removing the 250mm reservoir from the cold side of the loop, I have 3 DYI reservoirs in the ice chest, and it is difficult to insulate the 250mm reservoir on the outside of the chest, so that is why I am considering removing it altogether.

ok so I found a plastic bowl that fits the bottom of the TEC assembly great, I will use this to capture any condensation that may form in the area. I might even find a small heater type of device that can aid in the evaporation of the condensation that collects in the bowl, or I will just use a paper towel to dry it out every once and awhile.

If you put a cloth or multiple layers it should do the job in soaking water

yes, that is the easiest way to deal with the issue.

but I was thinking of finding some kind of thingy, that heats up to about 50C, and would sit in the bottom of the bowl.
I don't know if it exists, but I am looking for it. tongue.gif
there are a few requirements for it, one, cant be damaged by sitting in water, two, cant get to hot, three, it would be nice if it ran on 12V DC or 110V AC.
so that's kind of what I am looking for. headscratch.gif

I was reading this from the beginning and I apologize if this has been covered somewhere along the way but ... is the point of the vacuum to remove all water vapor and thus not have to wrap the cold pipes and cover the socket with a moisture barrier?

If his computer components is in a vaccum, that means he can go subzero without any water bulding up. Therefore no insulation is required and the computer can operate propery
