Just saw that the private threads had been enabled. Won't have a chance to construct this until next week and hopefully I'll finish it by the deadline.

Goal: Create a chamber in which a single-stage air conditioner will chill the chamber to sub-ambient temperatures while dehumidifying the air and reducing motherboard component temperatures to facilitate high-speed overclocking.

Plan: Initially an insulated chamber capable of holding an EATX motherboard will be constructed and sheathed in either plywood or aluminum. A ducted evaporator will be placed inside of the case with circulating fans and a drip-pan to help chill the air within the chamber. The chamber itself will feature a plexiglass lid and LED backlights for show and holes over CPU and GPU locations for pots and suction-lines.

Materials:
1/5hp compressor
2x Chilly1 Little Blue Condensers
Large quantity of Insulating foam
Wood for chassis
Plexiglass for lid
Rubber grommets for cable pass-throughs.

In a few days I will draw out the chamber and plan the chassis, hopefully start construction next week.
