    Ok this is going to be a short mod thread as I recieved my brand new Mach 2 GT prometeia from Phil at extremeprometeia.com.
    Sorry but he does great service so I figure I cant get in trouble for one plug

    Ok on with the show the aim is to build a duel headed prometeia unit for me to play with on the long weekend I am using the standard head on the cpu only because I like the simple mounting , I could have gone the chilly1 head option as I have a couple of them too

    wow thats quite cool....always wondered what was in those things....looks jus like whats in the back of a fridge

    is that all it is? works jus like a fridge except removes more energy (thus making it colder)

    Yeah it has a radiator type thing called a condenser and the other end is a block called an evaperator which depending on the gas and various other things gets down to -40 or so :)

    dont remind me about evapourators and condensers...ive just handed in a thermo report analysing a refrigerating system. it had a throttle valve in it so working out the enthalpy's of R134a at various points got confusing...ive never done so much interpolation ever...glad to see the back of it lol
