Basically, I tore down the front controls, the fan shroud and the sides, so I can mount a reservoir around the evaporator.







This will be used in my friend's PC, but I'm just building it for him. He's using a GPU with a delrin top, so we'll have to make the A/C system run constantly at about 5ºC so it doesn't crack.

Feedback would be awesome =)

Dont you just love finding awesome junk laying around. Mine is a old drinking fountain that was build early 1980s and uses r12 Works like a champ still as well.

Make sure you prepare for insane amounts of condensation during the early summer months. Wrap everything up and use die electric grease.

Good luck with your project!

Nice machine!

I've dealt with dry ice before, so I think I'm pretty set for chillers =D

Well, it's been a month since I've last updated this thread, mainly due to exams. I worked on the unit today, and it's DONE; all we have to do is paint the unit and it will look awesome.

It dips down to 1ºC according to an alcohol thermometer, and keeps the water cold for quite some time. Hopefully Kopi and TLD can come up for some overclocking runs, because we'll all be able to WC our NB chips and GPU's with subambient temperatures. We went through a lot of trouble re-wiring the setup, but in the end, it looks like a clean retail PC chiller.

Here are the pictures of the almost-finished unit:

Does it still have freon in it? Or did you have to get more?

It still has R22 in it, and I don't think it will run out for a while.

I'd be nice to do something like this, if I didn't know how the costs of something like this was. From the price of electricity and the fact that a large can of freon ranges from $80-$110. In my state you have to have a license just to buy that kind of stuff. I suppose if I wanted to do it I could ask my grandfather who has been in the air conditioning business--but its just too much money on electricity. Good luck with it.
