ok, so tomorrow I will drill these four holes through the chill box. two of these holes, will be for the water going into the chill box, and water going out of the chill box. the other two holes will be for wiring, one for all the communication lines, and the other will be for all of the power lines.



ok the holes are done now it is time to get the wiring done. the wiring my take a few, weeks to complete, but so far things seem to be progressing smoothly.

ok so the two 240mm radiators are inside the chill box, the loop is cooling the chill box, and the system still holds the same temps. next step is to run the wiring, and connect the PC to the cold side water loop. the CPU will be the only thing with a water block. I will be air cooling the GPU for now. the system is coming along nice. I will be paralleling the 240 radiators inside the chill box. the flow rate is a little low so this should free up some of the water loop restriction. right now the chill box radiators are in serial, and the water loop dropped to 5.5LPM I would like to keep the flow rate on the cold side water loop, above 6.0LPM. ambient is at 27C.

still need to parallel the radiators, and I need to run the wiring than reseal the holes for the wiring. I will be resealing the holes with shore 40 rubber. I will also be sealing the lid with clay, around the magnetic rubber seal.

ok so I am seriously considering adding 12 more 360mm radiators, I could also use 21" box fans for the radiators. by using box fans I could outfit the radiators for less than $100, the radiators will be $400, and around $200 for all the fittings. I would need two more pumps that would be about $200 as well. so it would cost me about $900 total to add these radiators to the build. that would be a few more months worth of upgrades. I still need to finish the chill box, but I have everything I need for that. the only other issue I have is weather to get new memory for the 2011, build I have or make a new 2066 build for this TEC cooling. so should I go ahead and add the radiators now?
also should I just add even more time to this build by building the 2066 build for it?

I love the tie dye look of the insulating clay around the TEC exchanger blocks. Is 36.6 the hot side water temp?

yep, that is the hot water temp. keep in mind that is with the TEC's only at half power and a 600watt load. I will need another 12 radiators to get the TEC's running at 3/4 power. it will go below 0C now, but the hot side water loop is all the way up to 45C, and I am still not at 3/4 power even then. so that is why I am considering adding the 12 new radiators to the build now. I will add 10 radiators to the 331watt TEC's hot side water loop, and add two radiators to the 224watt TEC's hot side water loop.


I like the clay because it seals the insulation, and it can be removed, as well as reused. I could have got all of the clay in a single color, but that would have actually cost more. so I did not even bother. I was actually surprised at how much clay it took to cover the cold side water loop, I was expecting between 40LBS to 50LBS, but it is closer to 70LBS of clay total for this build. I coved the pumps, to keep them in a dry cold atmosphere, and so far this seems to be working great as I have not had a pump fail on me.


ok, so I went ahead and ordered 12 more 360mm radiators for this build. now just having the radiators is not enough, I still need pumps and fittings, to make this work. the radiators should be here by the end of march, in April I will get the pumps, and in may I will get the fittings. this should have the radiator upgrade completed sometime in may, at the latest June.


ok so after some heavy altering of my bills, and I may have just shot myself in the foot, so to speak. I went ahead and got the pumps, and some fittings for the radiators. so I may be able to have the new radiators installed, and ready to use by the end of this month. just have to see if I can make it work with what I have.

ok, so I have everything but the radiators, for this radiator upgrade to this build. when I get the 12 new radiators I will add them to the two hot loops. with the new radiators I will be using a youtubers idea of using box fans for 3 to 4 360mm radiators at a time. this should be fun.

ok, so I have the 12 new radiators for this build, it is time to start adding them to the hot loops.
ok, so now I have a total of 24 360mm radiators, I will keep the three water loops, the 331watt TEC hot loop will have 16 radiators, and the 224watt TEC hot loop will have 8 radiators. I got two more D5 pumps for the 331watt TEC hot loop, that water loop will now have 4 water pumps.

Did you paint them or did they come in white? Do you have a link for those? I've got a white case interior.

no they came that way, but they are aluminum, I decided to go aluminum because I needed so many, and their is only about a 50watt difference between copper, and aluminum in that size radiator. also the copper are 10FPI, and the aluminum are 20FPI, so the aluminum radiators need 3000RPM fans, or better to function well.


currently I am working on getting a second table, and a wood table top to place on top of that. so this project just got twice the amount of surface area to mount stuff to. not the best solution, but I have no other. I will be setting all this up over the next week or two and getting the new radiators installed on the hot side water loops.
