One side in the middle with 2 hotside chambers. yeah i'll get there . The problem is it'll cost twice as much putting out of the rang of most people i think .. I definitely want to go down that road though cause that's where the big gains can be found.. take the same Qmax and spread it over twice the surface area should result in a drastic decrease the TEC to water temps.
My dream is to use two of the above chillers with 16 40x40 TEC's to spread the same load over 2.5 times the TEC surface area and 4 times the water block area than what i have now. That chillier would be AWESOME
im look forward to changing the thickness of the base of these blocks to see how much difference that makes. In my current chillier i think id get good gains if i spaced the TEC out, not having them all bunched together. i'll move them for interest sake but i can't do that on my current chillier
oh i have some more time soon so i'll be banging some more pic outEdited by Ultrasonic2 (muffy) - 3/27/09 at 11:50pm
