lol i love how in the first few posts people jump in like they know what the hell their talking about saying "hell no, it won't work..." when I've known a couple people that use chillers with success.

the only chiller ive ever used was my ghetto tec chiller, a 226w TEC with cpu heatsinks on both sides, the cold side dipped in the reservoir. Wasn't very effective but of course it was 25$... it did manage to drop my temps 4-6 degrees

I use a bottled water cooler for my chiller.. I sell and install point of use water coolers, so we get a lot of these 'p.o.s.' bottled coolers that no one wants anymore.. I've been using this one for over a year now.. It's nice but bulky as you can tell..

This model has a basic thermostat that helps me keep it from getting too cool in the summer and producing condensation.. The models of product I sell are much nicer (digital) but retail for over $1000 each.. So price/performance is not that great.. But they do have sealed tanks and UV bulbs to keep the water clean, so when one comes up for me to have i'll be in love..

I use this b/c it was free for me.. In the summer I usually idle just above my local areas dew point level.. In the winter tho, I can run her till she nearly freezes.. Right now I'm between 5C and 11C dle with a hard 100% OC..

I love using chilled water.. Helps keep dust down b/c you don't need fans, and keeps the tubing cleaner b/c you won't need to make as many connections and such..

I should get together with someone here who is good with these comps.. I have many at the shop that just sit around doing nothing.. Most are LG and brand new doa's... IDK if they could be reborn or not..

E-mail them and ask about it. I did about the modified 1/3hp they had, I asked them if it could cool a 437W TEC and CPU off very well and they straight up told me no it wouldn't handle it. Thats really all I know about them other then 7 or 8 years ago I think they either made or distributed the "Sleech"(SP) CPU block, so they have been around a while.

Here's my quad 226 TEC's water chillier. It works great . i havent finished yet
post #39 of 48
hmm, id love to have some of those :3
it really looks like some thought went into it, i like that.
what were the total costs of that thing?
post #40 of 48
Material costs weren't too high though it's a big boy at 34cm (13.3 inches) long ... it's the time that REALLY adds up this thing took about 40 hours to make. if i ever get my CNC mill going im gonna make a better version and mybe sell one or two if anyone cares. im hoping for a price tag of 250us ... which i think is dirt cheap if you consider the single water block single tec arctic web costs 230 ish usd
