Aquarium chiller yes or no? - Page 19

post #181 of 216
if it works on keeping large tanks cool running when you have your pc on should be no problem. if your water reservoir is the rite size it may work the same amount as if it was cooling a larger tank.

I got every other part of the system right, this weekend I got the Chiller right...

I assumed a decent (85w) chiller would be able to work with a good rad/fan combo to achieve any reasonable loop temp. I thought the chiller would push everything 'over the edge' and allow me to do what I wanted. Nope... so...

This weekend I switched my 85w peltier unit out for a 1/4hp compressorr unit. I learnt:

1) the compressor is WAY quieter than I thought it would be

2) it is WAY more efficient that I thought it would be. Just spent the night o/c at levels I COULDN'T get near before... and my room didn't even get warm!!!!

3) with a 300w+ chiller I can take my loop temps to wherever I want...

Pics and proof to follow!!!

Nice, congratulations. Sounds like a really cool setup now.

Which compressor is it and where'd you get it? Sounds quite interesting...

and? This isn't a help thread, and this is all on topic and interesting, it's not just some guy bumping it because he has the same problem.

Great!
Looking forward to see pictures. And please do some stress tests to see some low temperatures!

I picked up a Hailea HC-300A. I had my loop temp down to 10C last night... running wPrime 32m. Got worried about condensation. Better go back and find that dew point calculation web site.

Not sure who makes the compressor... but it is quiet. Picked it up at an aquarium store on-line. VERY happy!!!

No pics of loop temps yet, but here are some initial o/cs on HWBOT.... these are 'first steps' at one notch above the levels I was previously stable at:

Aquamark at low 4.8GHz. Aquamark is highly processor speed driven... plus doesn't need HT so the heat load with just 4 cores is less than benchmarks that need 8 logical cores. Always like to start with the 'easy classics'

3dMark Vantage at 4.6GHz. I like this one because the processor bench puts out a LOT of heat... and I have NEVER been able to run it at anything above 4.5... so I am very happy with this.

Both were easy to hit... so I have no doubt I will go higher.

So, simply put, you have HC-300A in your CPU-only loop and are able to full stress your w3580 while the coolant temperature remains at 10C all the time? Is that it?
How long is the stress test (in minutes/hours)? I suppose the compressor of HC-300A was 'on' all the time? What are the maximum temperature for the cores? Give some numbers now and supply those pictures later.
(I am eager to see a couple pictures of your entire loop)
