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..
