TEC Chill Box Chamber Build log - Page 21

I got the radiators today, and I will unpack and install today and tomorrow. they are the same radiators as the ones I have, as they work well for the price, total for the radiators and setup for each one, fans, shrouds, and fittings totaled $210 not bad, it has cost me up to $300 for a single radiator setup before.
next is to finish the TEC assembly and the TEC power supply frames, than I will be ready to start on the copper piping for the vacuum pump and than finally the chest.
still months worth of work but it does sound easy. thumb.gif

well I guess that I am getting a little faster at this, because I got the rads installed today.

That poor little D5 at the bottom doesn't know what it's in for. Is that maybe the 24v version?

What does the vacuum chamber do for this setup ?

Vaccum chamber gives the computer case a vaccum, the computer mobo and stuff is in it. With a vaccum going on zero condesiation will happen, therfore elimiating the need to insulate the motherboard, cpu and gpu

no, but there are two pumps there, one is on the bottom of the reservoir as well.

the idea is to prevent condensation from being able to form inside the ice chest (vacuum chamber)



I will have a camera, and a humidity gage inside of the vacuum chamber, to keep a eye on things.

ok so I have 3 different sizes of aluminum angle, and I needed all three sizes, to create a frame that will hold all four fan controllers. still working on the frame but I will have pics up soon.

ok so I noticed a interesting point in another thread, how to deal with the weakness of the ice chest without spending a lot for a new cooler, what I am doing is building a support frame for the inside of the ice chest, I call it the frame for the reservoirs, and it does support the reservoirs, but more importantly the frame keeps everything inside the ice chest tight to the walls, solid to the floor, and snug to the lid. with this in place the inside of the ice chest should be stronger because of this frame work. of course I don't know for sure if it will work, but all I can do is my best, and hope for the best result

Why do you want a res for the cold side, its decreacing your performance and it makes no sense.

Res for hot side will increace cooling performance and that would make sense

with a water chiller, it needs a reservoir to function correctly, OCaddict proved this with his unit, now how much reservoir is needed who knows, but he had to build a large reservoir to get it to function correctly, all I am doing is learning from his findings.
and if you think about it, water chillers are made mostly for fish tanks, talk about a large reservoir, that is really all a fish tank is.
