Such a thing as a liquid chiller? - Page 2

That's quite a bit lower than ambient and depends on humidity. Dryer climates have a much lower DEW point than humid areas.

For example in my area right now with a 55% humidity, the dew point is currently -6C.

That means as long as everything stayed above -6C (right now) condensation would not develop.

With all that said, I think it's probably easier just to run a normal TEC setup or phase if you need more cooling than normal water.
Don't forget that your home's humidity may differs from the outside. Also, most people want to not monitor the dew points and plan for worst case scenario... else they'll have to fine tune their cooling every few months.

Direct cooling is definitely better being it is more efficient... less thermal inefficiency layers.

Yeah, that's true, although I have seen one chiller a programmer built than had it's own instruments to measure humidity and calculated dewpoint on the fly. Then he set it to have a few degrees cushion above the dewpoint and it automatically adjusted based on that dewpoint. That was pretty cool

For me, ambient is good enough. I got a pair of 480gtxs sitting here waiting for install. One for the CPU and one for the GPU, I'm thinking a little undervolting of the yate loons is in order here and I'm going for silence.

The easiest thing to use if you don't want to get condensation is use some kind of small aquarium chiller, they are expensive and it would take a lot of hit and miss to get your temp's right..Keep it right around ambient and you'll be fine..I'd still condensation proof just to be safe...

Condensation proofing is the easiest part of it all...It doesn't take long and you can proof your board for around $40 bux.You'll need to wrap your tubing in pipe wrap to...If you want a chiller i would go for a 5000BTU AC chiller slush box or a 25 quart a day de-humidifier slush box...Fairly cheap to make, but they will suck up the juice, your electric bill will rise...

...Condensation Prevention

...Pelt Condensation Proofing (out-dated but good)

..Dehumidifier Chiller

..Water-Fountain Chiller

...Reef Aquarium Chillers

...Chilled Liquid Cooling
