|BroadPwns||To whom it may concern - 40x40 version of TEC1-12715 SR as well as 12712 at 15A places directly on a CPU can't cool a 80W CPU below 75C, using both Raijintek Tisis or Liquid Freezer II 360mm. No Peltier gives at most 74C on... 120W power draw. Maybe I reinvented a wheel but maybe someone was wondering. It's either because they're very bad at heat transfer or because of 50% of their volume floats around the IHS.|

ok, so I have the second 240mm radiator. this will be going inside the chill box, one of the things I like about having these radiators on the cold side water loop. is that if I loose TEC cooling, I can still run the PC just like it is on standard water cooling. not the best mind, you as two 240mm radiators are not going to keep the system very cool.

|8051||Wow that weight. Just wow.|

Just out of curiosity how much does the rig weigh? Is it possible to pick it up without disconnecting the watercooling and TEC elements first?
I wish, but no, it's coming in around 400 LBS, or 500 LBS, with the chill box.

well I just got a second HWL 240mm radiator for the chill box, this way they are the same type of radiator. as for the alpha cool 240mm radiator, I will be adding that to my internet computer. so my internet build will have a total of 4 radiators, when I do the next upgrade to that build. I am adding a total of two alpha cool 240mm radiators, and replacing the bitspower reservoir, with a water cool glass reservoir. so my internet computer, will have the two 360mm radiators it has now, and two new 240mm alpha cool radiators, added to it's water loop.
my internet computer is below, I will start a new thread in water cooling, when I do these upgrades.

|toolmaker03||ok, so because this is a chilled water build I have to remove the water blocks from the video cards and replace the thermal paste, and pads, with artic silver ceramic. this is because normal thermal paste and pads do not react well in cold environments. the paste becomes dry, and the pads become hard and brittle. so much for getting the video cards, with water blocks already attached.|

|toolmaker03||ok so I guess I should give a time frame and some understanding as to why it has been so long. I have about $100 extra a month to spend on what ever I like. I have spent the last 10 months saving up that money for the purchase of a new video card. I ended up being able to get two video cards for this build, but now I am broke. so I need another $600 to $1000 to finish getting all the parts I need for a new build. this means it will be another 6 to 10 months, before I will have the new build together, and running inside the chill box.|

|toolmaker03||I got my second card today.|
