    White Timantti
    Integrate performance, cooling and beauty in the smallest space possible, not impossible.
    We begin this project with this ideology.
    Go through this worklog developed displays neatness, sobriety, extreme beauty and a model ever seen. (So far)
    Named White Timantti (White Diamond in Finnish) highlighting the earliest described;)

    The project would be as follows (Not finished design, as it progresses will be modified and go up photos of the scheme)

    Without further ado, I proceed to present our sponsors. Thank you very much!

    We started the project with MDF Laminated.
    As always, the photos speak for themselves.

    Next week I go over advancements! Greetings!

    PS: Any idea to make the I / O back panel? (Structure which hold the pci-e, inputs / outputs motherboard, etc)

    Nice work so far (moderator move this to project logs as work is being done?)

    Re: IO Panel, possible cut one out of a donor case? In wood that thick you're going to have issues getting plugs to ports.. or if you beveled to suit it may look weird :)

    Looks good. Nice job on that slim DVD casing. That silver rad is purdy. Is it aluminium?

    PS I see you joined on Losias. Please post you log there too! :)

    Sw33t thanks. What will you do to avoid galvanic corrosion between the copper block and alu rad?

    Well after a while I went back to study the project and leave you some progress, excuse the poor quality of the images, I have no good camera!
    Support HDD. Thanks to Mr. Magerakis for the idea!

    Well, here we stay last time… Presentation of the components to make the cuts, holes and final measurements

    [​IMG]

    Lets start flexing like Millon Dólar PC Style!!!

    Working Area… a bit disordered, but I order it every one or to days :D

    Here I will make a break to show you what will be the deposit; the liquid runs through the deposit and will be cooled by a TEC (Peltier) with a cooper block… There are some missing modifications, such as a guide to parse the input and the output of the fluid.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    This is an old Cooper block that imade for a Microproc. WC. It has the middle modification for the acrylic tube.

    [​IMG]

    After stick it with special acrylic glue, we check for leaks with liquid at rest;

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    As a Chrystmas present, www.pcmodd.com.ar brought to the project the WC fittings
    [​IMG]

    This is the test I’ve made with the Peltier cell, cooper block in touch with the fluid at the “cold side” of the Peltier, and a sink + cooler to chill out the “hot side”.
    The results were pretty good, at first, the temperature increased with the water at rest, then, I moved the water at the reservoir and this are the results.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Frozen Water!!!

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Making atest,i checked that the Cooper blockwith the cell needs an insulation to avoid condensation… Also, I had an issue with a molex, the cables were very thin so they overheat… talking with “masbuskado”, he told me the solution… Thick cables to dissipate the heat.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Aftersome tets, we still making changes; a hole to pass the radiator hose  Deposit

    [​IMG]

    With the “fresa” and the Dremel 4000’s complement, this is a piece of cake thing

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    No its time to set the bomb to the box, Using pop rivets, modifying it and making it bagel, it’s a good choice to make bagels to wood.

    I went back! After all this time. I continue to progress:
    We continue with the construction of the shell with peltier, for those who do not knowwhich is the peltier, leave a brief explanation:

    Thermoelectric cooling uses the Peltier effect to create a heat flux between the junction of two different types of materials. A Peltier cooler, heater, or thermoelectric heat pump is a solid-state active heat pump which transfers heat from one side of the device to the other, with consumption of electrical energy, depending on the direction of the current. Such an instrument is also called a Peltier device, Peltier heat pump, solid state refrigerator, or thermoelectric cooler (TEC). The Peltier device is a heat pump: when direct current runs through it, heat is moved from one side to the other. Therefore it can be used either for heating or for cooling (refrigeration), although in practice the main application is cooling. It can also be used as a temperature controller that either heats or cools.[1]
    This technology is far less commonly applied to refrigeration than vapor-compression refrigeration is. The main advantages of a Peltier cooler (compared to a vapor-compression refrigerator) are its lack of moving parts or circulating liquid, and its small size and flexible shape (form factor). Its main disadvantage is that it cannot simultaneously have low cost and high power efficiency. Many researchers and companies are trying to develop Peltier coolers that are both cheap and efficient. (See Thermoelectric materials.)
    A Peltier cooler can also be used as a thermoelectric generator. When operated as a cooler, a voltage is applied across the device, and as a result, a difference in temperature will build up between the two sides.[2] When operated as a generator, one side of the device is heated to a temperature greater then the other side, and as a result, a difference in voltage will build up between the two sides (the Seebeck effect). However, a well-designed Peltier cooler will be a mediocre thermoelectric generator and vice-versa, due to different design and packaging requirements.
    Well I wanted to clean the tank with alcohol and this happened, the acrylic adhesive does not get along with alcohol.

    Great build. There's just something about the whole "shrunk pc" concept. And with the vertical mobo-tray it does have somewhat of a Level10 quality. A remark, if I may:

    How does the gfx-card being supplied with pre-warmed air from the rad affect temperatures? Despite the open layout I can't imagine it's not using most of the air coming from the radiator underneath...
