the last thread was getting to long, so I decided to create a new thread to cover the end of this last build. you may have noticed that I am going a lot slower on the build this time, the reason for this is that I am testing everything before I finalize it on the build. this process takes longer, but I think that the end result will be a hassle free build upon completion. I am done building this rig, I have made a stopping point, and I am sticking to that. 12 TEC's are enough to give me 3 times the load of the system in TEC cooling, and that is really all I need. as the years pass, I may upgrade this system, but I will not add more TEC's to it. if the last build, with 9 TEC's, had provided me with just a little better drop from ambient than 8C with the system at load, I would have stopped there.

I know that I have not been showing all of the testing I have been doing, but is hard to test, and take pics at the same time. as well I am a red neck when it comes to building my test rigs. so they are dangerous, and I would not want others to try doing, what I am doing with my test builds, as destroying stuff is highly possible, with the way I throw it together.
