Don't really have a way of monitoring the water temps unless I drop a probe into the T-line. Would that be accurate enough? Yesterday was a marathon of getting things going. The amount of turbulence in the block combined with the t-line made the bleeding of the loop a tedious process...a res would eliminate the issue. I'll look at some options.
I can't offer anything better than digital thememeter temps at the moment. Like i said I should really drill a couple of holes...one in the hot plate and one in the cold and use thermocouples and a proper meter to monitor temps. At any rate temps so far which are highly unscientific and to be taken with a grain of salt.
Temps after 2 hours operation:
Tecs at 26vdc
Base of the cold plate: -15c (the ice alters the reading)
Water temp: Best I can offer is the air temp of the air exiting the rads: 30c
Anything you think I can add to this that isn't terribly expensive I am all ears for. I already have the relay for the 110v 12vdc activated circuit. basically add 12vdc and three legs of 110vac come alive. I'll hook it up to the psu from the rig so it will all come on at the same time. I just have to figure out the wiring lol.
I should add that the entire assembly PLUS the rig in my sig ran fine all on the same 110v circuit while I ran 20 passes of linX to load the rigs power draw. It's on a 20 amp breaker
Happy easter to all that it applies to and all that it does not no offense intended.
