Well, my cold side pump failed even when isolated with liquid tape, you may want to consider putting it inside, otherwize the pump may suddenly fail and disaster might happen.

The hall effect gave up and refused to run cold, this is what happened to me

yep, that's why I am packing it in clay, so that the motor does not get too cold, I am hoping that with clay packed around the motor, it can keep itself warm enough, with the cold liquid running through it. I will have a temps sensor on the bottom of the motor to see how well this idea works out if I need more heat in the area to keep the motor warm I will deal with it then, I really don't have a solution to this issue if the clay does not work.

Well, good luck,I don't think the clay method will work though. It may fail within days or hours, or even like mine, fail after 5 months

ok so it looks like I will have a total of 7, 5 1/4" bay devices, that is a lot of bays, not too many cases out there that can handle that many.
it seems that the closer I get to being done, the more I find to do, but I kind of figured that this would happen so I am not too surprised.
all and all the build is coming along quite well, and a little faster than I figured, I might only have a couple of months left on this before it is up and running.
of course that all depends on how much more I find to do on this build in the mean time.

The pictures for the polished blocks, is this the old blocks we are using, or is it extra blocks so we can run more peltiers.
I though we had them polished before we started puting the loop together

yea, there are the same blocks, but I removed the raised section in the middle of the block to make it flat, I started doing this at the start of the build, and it has taken me this long to get 4 of them done, I have the 5th block about 1/4 of the way done, and I am just now starting on the 6th block. whoo lots of work, but I think they will work better this way.

I see, nice work, perfect contact and more heat trasnfer, more performance thumb.gif

so after looking over the build real hard, it looks like I can start on a wire fit for the build, and start the process of making the ice chest air tight. this will take several weeks to complete, and I may need to order a few things, so the process may even take a little longer as a result, but I think I can multi task this build a little more than I have been. so I am going to install the mother board into the PC case for this build. so that I can run all the wiring through the ice chest, I will complete the tubing by making it in three sections, just like most of the wire is done. so I will have a section of tubing that is for going through the chest only, it will connect to another section of tubing that is inside of the chest, and a section of tubing on the outside of the chest. it is a little more expensive to do it this way, but I think that the ease of being able to disconnect it later, will be well worth the cost.

I am going to try and seal the wire connections on the inside of the ice chest as well as the wire connections on the outside, a little extra care never hurts, so to seal the connections on the inside of the ice chest, I am considering packing a small amount of eraser putty into the connector around the pins, and than filling the back side of the connector with liquid rubber, after the liquid rubber cures I will remove the eraser putty from around the pins. I don't know if it will help, but it sounds good.
