yes, I here you on that note. biggrin.gif

that switch next to the water temp display is a CLR CMOS switch, it is wired directly to the MOBO.

I am using 2133Mhz memory with the hope of being able to run the system at that frequency, but if the system becomes unstable, I will lower the memory speed to 1333Mhz to stabilize the system, and deal with it. thumb.gif

ok, so the rubber is down on the inside, and I am prepping the outside for the plastic, I hope it works this time. If anyone has any ideas for the ice chest let me know please.
ok, so if this seal job does not work, I will be getting military connectors for all of the wiring, and making the pass through for the wire on the ice chest that way.(lots of work this way) redface.gif

well, at lest it looks better this time, but the real question, is will it work better this time? rolleyes.gif

well the plastic is laid and it seems strong enough, but I will know for sure here in a few days.

Looks a lot better, hopefully it sticks to the wires and is flexible enough to stay sealed!

Well, even if it doesn't seal perfectly I think it's still usable. You're only drawing a vacuum until you refill with dry nitrogen. You can always run a slight positive pressure with the nitrogen and your environment is still completely dry. Plus the nitrogen gives you the convective cooling you need for some of the parts.

ok, so the wires are sealed and I have located my last little leaks in the ice chest. they are located on the transition area from the white plastic to the blue plastic. I did not have this issue last time, so I am guessing that it was luck with the last ice chest, that allowed for the internal foam to give me a great air tight seal. I am fixing this issue by first sealing the small crease between the two plastics with rubber, than covering that with liquid plastic. this creates a solid plastic bond from the white plastic to the blue plastic of the ice chest, when I have finished going all the way around the ice chest I will test it again. I really think that this will be the end of all the leaks in the ice chest, as it took me several hours to find these leaks and I could only find two of them they are small areas on the transition, where the air was being sucked into. I had to seal my room and fill it with smoke to find the issues, as it takes almost three hours for the ice chest to return to normal pressure. with due diligence, and a little time, I was able to see the smoke being drawn into the area between the two plastics on the ice chest.

**edit I used a party smoke machine and dry ice to create a heave smoke field at the ground level**

Wow ... as seamless as they look, I guess they are really just two different injection molds pressed together and perhaps spottily glued. Good progress.

yea, I was a little upset about it myself, but I will get this done no matter what it takes. biggrin.gif

ok, so I am at the ice chest and I am trying to make the inside as dry as possible and I have decided to add two types of packs to the inside of the ice chest in a effort to ensure that the inside remains as dry as possible.
http://www.amazon.com/Supa-dri-Desiccant-Resealable-Freshness-Dehumidifiers/dp/B014UASFAM?ie=UTF8&keywords=moisture%20packs&qid=1465318753&ref_=sr_1_15&sr=8-15

http://www.amazon.com/Oxy-Sorb-Oxygen-Absorbers-Storage-100-Pack/dp/B0028AG8RO?ie=UTF8&keywords=Oxygen-Absorbing%20Packets&qid=1465319370&ref_=sr_1_1&sr=8-1

the first link is humidity absorbent packs, the second link is oxygen absorbent packs, with both types in the ice chest it should stay nice and dry. thumb.gif

once again, if anyone has any ideas for the ice chest, I would like to hear them, as it might help to make this rig a sustainable cooling solution.
