Discussion thread Orb I was thinking about doing a project for awhile and just needed the right time. I plan to design and build a case with a vapor cooling system. Basic Plan: The dimesions will roughly be 2 foot X 2 foot X 4 foot, it wont all be case and you will soon know why it has to be so large Direct evaporator on the cpu and gpu with an airtight humidity controlled area to avoid the need for insulation and dielectric grease. Specs: PC Power and Cooling 1 Kilowatt Power Supply "Dothan" Pentium M 750 3 WD 74 GB Raptors Raid 0 2 Plextor slot load DVD DL Burners 2 GB Crucial Ballistix G-Force something (waiting for a dual gpu card) Creative Sound Blaster X-FI Asus CT-479 Asus P4GD1 Basic concept, (I cant draw): It's a 2 foot X 2 foot X 1 foot base housing the cooing system, power supply, cd/dvd drives, and front panel. The top is a 20 inch diameter airtight sphere housing mother board, pci cards, graphics card, and hard drives. Merry Christmas! Power supply, PCP&C 1 Kilowatt 1100 watt peak! Motherboard, Asus P4GD1 I got this motherboard from Germany through a friend of a friend. This motherboard was discontinued and now it seems the world is out of stock. I had a dead CPU and needed to RMA, so I'll continue with the hardware later...... While waiting 1 month for my new CPU I started working on my case and cooling system. My work area I got 1/8 inch thick 3/4 inch X 3/4 inch aluminum angle stock for the structure of the base. Cutting 2 foot 45% pieces 4 bottom pieces with a wood jig to hold the form before welding. 4 top pieces with a wood jig to hold the form before welding. 3/5 inch plywood base cut to just shy of 23 3/4 inches square. First of many coats of black gloss paint to the base. Thats all I can do until I get my friend to weld it or the paint to dry. On to the cooling system! The victim: 12000 BTU window airconditioner. I need to rip the compressor out to use in this project. 12000 BTU unit should have around a 1HP compressor which is a little overkill for a dual evap system with my heat load, but i can always turn it into a trivap if i ever get suckered into SLI. Compressor, the heart of any airconditioner. That's it for tonight, I should get the frame welded soon, and I have a ton of parts on the way.
