Hi guys

So,.. now I have read, read some more, read it again, and finally understood all the basics, safety issues, and some of the more advanced stuff too. And don't worry, the "don't do it yourself stuff", will be done by a hired pro.

I have plans in my tiny mind, for what I hope to be the next revolution in water chilling. Thinking of my mind, it's probably a tiny revolution

This is what I need components for:

Chilling about 5 gallons/19 liter of fluids, to run in a buffered, constantly cool system. The compressor should be able to remove the heat from an OC'ed CPU, a GPU, and the buffer tank should then be able to maintain a constant low temp. Therefore I don't think the compressor need to be as powerful as for DD, just enough to remove the watts of heat from the C/GPU, and a bit more, say 50%. I figure that would be in the 300watt range, to be sure.

Anyways. Reading all that info, did rise a few new Q's:

1. What coolant is the best, considering lowest temp, efficiency, and a bit of economy. A prioritized list would be great. I read about R13B-1 which seems to be a very good coolant, but I don't know if it will work with this application

2. What compressor is best, considering the above mentioned coolant Q, how much HP, what brand-type-model. Please tell me an old freezer comp will do fine

Thanks guys
