When you get to that point, Please let us know what it cost additional electrical utility per month to run?

really? that will kind of depend on how much gaming I do each month, or how addicting a particular game is. biggrin.gif
as you have suggested, I will be shutting this rig down when it is not being used. I will post the difference in the bills though. thumb.gif

keep in mind there are standard water cooling rigs here at OCN, that easily cost twice that. mine is cheap in comparison. redface.gif

have a look through this and you will find the rigs I am talking about, one that really comes to mind is some of ITDeva's builds. those builds are expensive. tongue.gif

Well, you can just count how many watts hour for one or two continuous gaming and report that. Just get one of those watt calculator appliance.

I did not notice a large spread in coolent temp in the res vs the chiller cold plate temp so i dont think the location of the probe will matter assuming you have proper flow. 1-2c doesnt matter, not sure id trust standard consumer temp probes to be that accurate anyway unless you are running expensive scientific ones.

so, it will be the same kind of differences that I have seen in standard water cooling, that is good to know, and no, I using XSPC water temp sensors, so, as for there accuracy goes, I sure it will close enough for my needs.

I think I am going to place one temperature sensor, on each side of the TEC assembly anyway, just to see what kind of differences in temperature are present.

well my average electricity bill in the summer is around $120, to $180, so anything over that, would be the computer. I will use last years figures, to see how much over I am each month.

ok, so the external reservoir on the cold side water loop has two upgrades added to it, one upgrade is the bitspower 3 hole top, the standard top that comes with that reservoir only has 1 hole in the center of it. the other upgrade that I put in the bottom of all of my reservoirs, is a bubble down vortex stop, I like these vortex stops, over the standard bits power vortex stops, because the bubble down has a lot of little holes in it, this allows for a great flow rate through the reservoir.

ok, so I have a total of 6 temperature sensors and one temperature/humidity gauge the gauge is located inside the ice chest. the 6 temperature sensors are the ambient room temperature, hot side water temperature, cold side water block temperature, cold side water pump temperature, and two cold side water temperature sensors located before and after the TEC assembly. that is a lot of temperature sensors for this build, I hope that they will provide a good amount of information on how this water chiller rig functions.
