Um no ones saying the unit is garbage or wont work im just saying it's to expensive for what it is.
lets recap the TCT 4 PP 05 is 4 TEC unit that move 210 watts (Q) at a COP of 1
and that will cost you about 300USD .
1st point is the 210 watts is rated at a hot side of 50c not the usual 25c so this makes his units appear more powerful than it really is.
2nd point is that 210 watts even at 50c really isn't enough for a modern PC so you need more power like the TCT 4 PPC 05 which now cost 520USD for 420 watts of cooling at 50c
Now when i get around to it i'll be making a water to water chiller that will move 1000 watts at a hot side temp of 25c to a cop of 1 while probably being cheaper than 520 USD
Yeah it will have a large lump of copper strapped to it and yeah i'll make it in the garage, but who cares if it's made in the garage it will be more powerful and cost less and that is the advantage of making it in my garage.
Also my chiller will tackle the issue of condensation which has been completely ignored in this design
Regarding a garage-made product, there are many who do care.
How many blocks have your sold so far? This is not a question intended to mock, I emphasize. If this is how you make your living, I do wish you will become the size of a company like Cool Top.
