I made the tubing runs on the hot side as straight as possible

I'm not sure how the clay would work out though, it seems to be impractical though.

Thats a good idea makes cleaning up easy

Getting close!

I was thinking about how overkill those heatsinks were, but now that I realize they are pointing at the cold side to help prevent condensation it makes a lot more sense thumb.gif

yea, and if the holes get moist on the inside, I can fill them up to. tongue.gif

and with that, I can now explain, if you will notice the holes on the TEC assembly are different sizes, why?
well I really don't know how thick I need the clay to be for this build, so that it will prevent condensation, for the temps that the TEC's can produce. so as a result of not knowing this information, this is what I came up with.
the general thickness of the clay on the TEC assembly is a 1 1/4", but the top hole on the assembly is only 1/2" thick with clay, and the bottom hole is 3/4" thick with clay. wink.gif
this way I can find out what thickness I really need the clay to be, if I have no condensation in the top hole, than I can make the build with a 1/2" thick of clay and I will be fine with that thickness, or if I have condensation in the top hole, but not the bottom hole, I can make the build with 3/4" thick clay and be fine with that thickness, but if I have condensation in both holes, and not on the TEC assembly itself, I will fill the holes with clay and call it good. biggrin.gif

ok so through this build I have made some changes to the build along the way, like adding a switch that attaches to the motherboard CLR CMOS pins, thanks for that LiamG6.
sounds a whole lot easier to do, than it actually was.

changing the way I was going to mount the radiators to save on room.

adding the CPU coolers to create a make shift evaporator.
making the DYI reservoirs for the build, thanks to OCAddict, for that great build.

thanks to puck, for making me question how thick, I need the clay to be, would not have even thought of testing different thicknesses to see what works.

and there are many more ideas through this log that may be used at a later time, it's still not done, but really thank you everyone for the help and ideas.

ok, as stated I will have the clay at the start of the TEC's cold side to begin with, and I will slowly add little bit, by little bit, of clay, until I hit that point where the radiated heat from the hot side, just warms the surface of the clay to prevent any freezing. I do not want to add too much clay to cause the clay to heat up internally and warm the cold side of the TEC.

ok, so how am I going to know when the hot side of the TEC is starting to warm the clay up internally as I add clay to the TEC assembly?
I will place a temp sensor 1/4" below the surface of the clay on the white section of the clay, it will be on the bottom of the assembly. so back to the bottom fan controller channel 2 will have a cold side motor temp, and channel 5 will have the internal clay temp, from 1/4" below the white area of the clay.
