TEC Chill Box Chamber Build log - Page 25

ok so the first thing I need to order for the ice chest is the static electricity prevention spray
http://www.mcmelectronics.com/product/TECHSPRAY-1756-8S-/20-4520
I do not know if I can explain this correct, but I will try, ok so normal air has a resistance of 277 ohms per square inch, the further the distance the greater the resistance, this is a lot of resistance enough that a normal computers operational static field can be grounded by the case and dissipated.
inside the vacuum chamber the air is thin and so the resistance in the ice chest will be much lower, these conditions may allow the static field to get quite large and strong, my fear is that if I do nothing to contain how strong the field can get, I might have a lighting storm inside the ice chest.
well that is my fear anyway.

the cold side water loop will have two pumps attached directly to the TEC assembly, and 3/8 soft copper tubing coming off the pumps that will end just before the ice chest, I will have couplers to connect to the next section of tubing that will go into the chest. the sections of tubing in the chest will be the water in line that will travel to the top of the reservoirs and will have another coupler connection to the next section of tubing, from there to the reservoir water in port at the top. there will be a section of tubing that goes from the bottom of the reservoirs to the bottom of the second video card. then we start the water out line, it will go from the bottom of the second video card to the outer side wall of the chest, from there I will have a coupler and a section of tubing that will fallow the walls of the chest to the hole and out of the chest. then another coupler and a another section of tubing that runs from just outside the chest to the second water pump. there is a third piece of soft copper tubing that will run into the ice chest and that tubing is for the vacuum pump, I will start from inside the chest, this section of tubing runs down the wall and out of the chest, I will have a coupler just outside the chest for the next section of tubing, the next section will also run up the chest to the top, and it will connect to the vacuum gage, and a 1/4 turn valve, and the last section will go from there to the vacuum pump.

You think of using hermetic military connectors? Tons of work soldering all of the wires, but it would solve your vacuum problems.

Something like this connector for the small wires. and another for larger power wires.

Other than that it looks very interesting. thumb.gif

I have thought about it, but I have not needed to go there so far but if I have a connector that will just not seal this is not a bad idea, I am sure they make them with a few less pins than the 76 pin shown but still a good option for that issue with my test build I was able to get it all sealed with a little flex seal only needing to solder a couple of wires. but that does not mean that what I did will last for the long term I may end up going here if the seals start to fail on the system.

to give a under standing as to why I am not willing to go this far yet.
if you where to break down to the individual wires I would have roughly 225 wires going through the chest lets say that I can get all the connectors I need at $7 each the power wires would need stronger connectors and what not. for the sake of argument lets say that I would need 18 connectors on the outside of the chest that's $126 not including the time it would take to solder all of those connections basically perfect. so yea I would like to avoid that whole can of worms if possible but if needed I will go there.

ALwell all of the fan controllers work, and all of the fans work, so this is the first section of the build that is operational, at half speed the setup is very quite.

as a recap on the bottom fan controller, channel 1 has the hot side water flow meter and the water temp sensor.
channel 4 has a fan and the ambient temp sensor.

well I thought it was cool, so I shared it.

ok so I have lot going on right now for this build, first I have several 90 degree copper fittings being added to the build, with will make it easier on me to assemble the cold side loop and tube it.
I have the TEC assembly being finished, and some added support being cut and drilled to make it a little stronger, it needs to be able to hold 100PSI without issue, and that requires a good strong frame to do that.
the frames for the power supplies are started, and it my take a few days to complete that.
and finally I am finishing up on the PC case for this build, and getting the motherboard installed into it.
wow that's a lot of stuff to keep track of, but it seems to be coming along at a good pace.

I really wish that I was done with this build already, I really want to play some games on my PC again, the PS3 is just not really doing it for me anymore.
I am so spoiled by PC gaming at high resolution 2560 X 1600, this 1920 X 1080 PS3 gaming sucks. I have some of the same games for my PC, and they look so much better on the PC.

Coming along well!
Don't let a lack of replies ever dissuade you - this is a low traffic forum due to the nature of this type of cooling, but I can promise you that people are reading and enjoying this thread, even if they don't reply smile.gif.
