    That's why I run 25% antifreeze mix. Before I went to that I did have an incident that was similar luckily I was watching and notice it starting to freeze up.

    Cool... literally! LOL

    And smart. Thankfully, it didn't freeze everything solid and I used the same rig for another few years.

    If your talking about the case pic it's in pieces right now that's an old pic. The one of the v10 only the board is dusty so don't really care.

    Now that is a beautiful build my friend! I little overkill on the 140m's imo, but great cable management and overall clean rig! You got any more pics?? and please tell me your overclocking that 2500k? ;) :rockout:

    Anyone got a good parts list for a budget TEC setup? Would I be able to use my H100 to cool the hotplate?

    I figured I might as well snap a picture of my i7-920 rig as it stands ATM:

    I don't know why but for a moment I thought "WTF is he doing with an old IDE optical drive on top of your CPU cooler :laugh:

    ... I'm none the wiser to what it is though?

    It's the side fan bracket from a Lian-Li Rocketfish I had way back when:
    [​IMG]
    Except, I have the fan on the outside--basically, it's to blow air over the CPU socket/VRMs/RAM to keep them cool. The reason I don't just have a fan sitting on top of the socket is this way it gets cooler air from outside the window ;)

    You just need the TEC. CoolIt did it with much older and much shittier performing AIOs, don't see why the H100 wouldn't handle it. Make sure you got good fans and a way to keep the frost/moisture off the board. IIRC they were called the Freezone and Eliminator. Something else to consider is that if the TEC is too large, and for some reason the H100 pump would fail, things can melt!

    The coolit units used the TECs to cool the coolant, not cool the CPU directly, just FYI. You should remember I hooked one into my H50 a couple of years ago.


    Otherwise, I agree, H100 should be able to do it, and a 150W or so TEC should be adequate.

    I am, actually, waiting for a TEC and PSU to arrive myself, as with IVB, it only seems natural to TEC cool, since they draw such small amounts of power, and seem to do well under cold, so the TIM used should not be an issue when doing so, too.

    Actually not sure on brand, ordered from local electrical supply store that I get all my goodies from. When to go pick up some pots for something else, made an impulse buy. :p I was just flipping through the catalogue, saw one, and it just clicked. :roll:

    Indeed. I have 3 120mm fans running off of the PSU for the i7-860, then the radiator for the Antec WC kit just outside the window, and then the Lian Li fan bracket sucks a bit more air in. Otherwise, with 1,000w+ of computers in here it heats up mighty quick :p
