TEC Chill Box Chamber Build log - Page 71

ok, so I really lucked out with the sharkbite fittings, the 1/4" sharkbite fittings fit 3/8" soft copper line perfectly. so, I got 5 90 degree fittings, to replace all of the compression fittings that I think might cause issues. most of the compression fittings do not move and can not move once installed, in fact I only need to replace 3 compression fittings, and only one of them was even leaking, but I got a couple of extra just incase, because I had to order them. currently I am working on getting the bottom reservoir fittings covered in rubber.

Glad you're catching this stuff now as opposed to when its all together!

lol, I was so close redface.gif for real though, nothing like this ever just goes together with no issues, and yes I am glad that it happened now as opposed to 4 or 5 months from now, when I would be in the middle of game play. that would have really sucked, but that is also why I am taking my time to test, and retest, every thing before I say it's good to go. thumb.gif

still tweaking the hot side water loop, I have added a light to the reservoir, and I added a little more wetter water to the hot side water loop, and doing that increased the flow rate to 9.51LPM

I can't believe that I just came across this build log! Actually it was last night and I've spent several hours going over (most) of the 71 pages and I've been loving it! The TEC water block "manifolds" look like something out of a dream, and the overview of the hot side made me want to cry. Thanks for documenting this project SO thoroughly! I'll probably never "duplicate" it, but that is more a matter of cost and the fact that I've already dumped close to a grand into my custom already. It has been a blast reading so far and I can't wait to see the rest unfold as time goes on! thumb.gif

well, I know that it is hard to tell with a picture, but I ordered two black lights for the top of this reservoir, but what they sent me was a black light, and a blue light. mad.gif
It's not worth sending it back for a new one though, so I will deal with what I got. redface.gif

well the lights are going to be used as caps for the hot side loop as the reservoir for the cold side loop will be covered in clay, so, the different colored lights kind of fit the build, as the displays are blue lights, and every thing else is black lights.
pictures really do not do black lights, and glowing stuff, justice at all, because this build really does glow at night.
maybe if I knew how to use this camera better, I could get a good picture of the build glowing. tongue.gif

ok, so I was doing another dry test of the system and I noticed a few things.
one with all of the fans on full blast with all three TEC's active I can keep my water temps on the hot side at 36C.
two and this is a question I noticed that of the wires going to the TEC's the black wires(or the ground wire) are the only ones that are getting hot, does anyone know why?

ok, so with this dry run I went for a one hour run of the system, and my relays do start to get warm after about 45 min, and the black wires on the TEC's get warm as well. I am pretty sure that when I switch to the 200A stinger relay that it will elevate the issue of the smaller relays getting warm. I will work on getting the first stinger relay all connected to make sure that it does not get hot even after prolonged use. as for how I was planning to deal with the black wires on the TEC's. I was thinking about making them smaller or shorter, to elevate some of that heat build up. I also noticed that after a hour of the TEC's being active, that I had another drop in voltage from on the power supplies from, 14.87V to 14.64V, I believe that this is due to heat resistance on the setup. on my test build, I used a 75A power supply, smaller relays and weaker switches, and because of all of the heat resistance on the build, my voltage from the power supply was only at 13.8V. so, it is getting better in that regard, I still have a few little issues that I need to deal with. so if anyone has some ideas on a better way of dealing with these little heat issues, I would like to hear them.
