Considering a TEC setup - Page 12

post #111 of 160
Yeah that looks like a 50x50mm base......Cool...Hey just be sure to use a good anti-corrosive in your coolant to help stop corrosion, I usually use Pentosin, its just Audi/VW anti-freeze, if you have a local dealership you can get it cheap.Pentosin ...G11 is blue and G12 is kind of pinkish...I just use 10% Prestone anymore the rest distilled...I'll leave you my PDF, it has all my recipe in it...

Later on if you see you like this and are going to continue with it I'd look at getting another top made for it..

If this is a reference to the PRO forums one. The guy who wrote it clearly doesn't know what he's talking about. Chillers have advantages and disadvantages over direct die cooling everything's a compromise.

Manyak in theory i could make you a cold plate whatever size you want in a month. postage from NZ it's that bad

Duckie-Ho made a 2 block one, that knocked off a C or two, erazoredge made a multi-block one that knocked off a C or two, his was fairly elaborate..Just Google TEC/Pelt chiller and you'll find a lot of them that knocked off a C or two...

Guys have been making them ever since we first sarted WC'ing, none of them work very well, cost a lot to build and only lower temp's slightly...

A hogged out WC'ing rig would do about as well and wouldn't cost $30-40 bux a month in electric..

They can be made with enough money and power bill, they just seem pretty pointless to me...You can make a 5000BTU AC chiller that will cool your whole mobo below 0C and not cost anymore in electric...

Great, I'll do that

And yeah either way, we'll know for sure in about a week exactly what size the base is. My current mobo has caps around the socket as well, so it'll be pretty easy to check how it fits.

Thanks

I'll let you know next week or so once the block arrives, so I can check if I even need one.

I can't think of any good reason why that should be the case. the doesn't mean its incorrect though :-)

I guess im going to find out first hand soon once i've finished mine

A/C cooling is better but not at much fun in my opinion

This guys getting - temps on a modern CPU with a water chillier
http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...=189043&page=2
thats with 700watts of QMAX

Yeah but he says his temp read-out's are all off to..I don't know why that one would work when no one else's ever have..

In other words I want to see validation with a chip that doesn't have a borked diode.....

My 5000BE rig the temp programs were all over, some read -50C some +50C, just all over the place and that was with just WC'ing...

There's no good reason why a chillier shouldn't work comparably well as a direct die chillier. A chiller is a bit less efficient due to having to move a bit more heat from the pup and losses though the tubing. These lossees can be made up for by using more TEC surface area and more Qmax

I personally think there's far to much BS about TEC's on the net. That when looked into properly just isn't true and/or can't be backed up

I think most failed TEC setups are because people lack the understanding for them to succeed in the first place. IE Im pretty sure i'm the first person to actually do the maths on the torque required on the H/C bolts and then go out and buy a torque wrench to do them up correctly.

These days people aren't using enough Qmax to get decent results

Thats fine, I believe it when I see it.....Till then its just another moon powered sun dial...Its the first thing a TEC noob wants to build..
