There are no silly questions only silly answers
I really have to buckle down tonight and get more done lol. MY commute took three hours last night as opposed to two and i really only realistically have three hours a night to work so it gets eaten up pretty fast. This is going to be on a new rig (and well can be used for any rig really since i use quick disconnects) I really don't think one 400w TEC will be enough here as things have changed since I first got the idea. I am an impatient little bugger so maybe I'll grab another. There's enough room on the plate (and the screw positions allow)for 2 62mm's or three 50mm's. That will allow for potentially 800w (2x62mm) or 900w(3x50mm). I think the latter might overload the hot plate though
It is all in good fun anyway. Those 3/8th copper tubes are press fit into the U channels btw.
The test rig for this firstly will be (and I think I said it a few posts later when i was talking aloud to myself lol):
AMD 1090T BE
Asus Crosshair IV Motherboard
2 x 5870 Video Cards
If it works I can move on to running it on a Classified 759 and a 920 or a 975EE. Again i don't think it will work lol.
I'll be doing a lot of things that seem to be controversial with a lot of banter back and forth. I guess I am a sucker for trying something myself and deciding that way. It will be an all in one loop (this way I can use the rad set up and Iwaki RD-30 pump as an external unit for different test setups. I will also be running the video card blocks in PARALLEL. The chiller loop will not contain a rad on the cold side as if it did you'd just be actually warming the water up again through the ambient air across the rad. The chiller loop will use two of these in series that i have layin' around (I think lol) http://www.dangerden.com/store/dd-cpx_pro-12v_pump.html
They worked before with alot more restriction to the loop.
