Ah damn. I feel sorry for you Ross. Not even a slight movement from the fans?

Ah no need to feel sorry , it's all good man.I do this to learn , I have learned.

Thinktank 2 will run , it's just gonna take more work.



edit : When I think of it , it'll be much more impressive running diethyl ether.I'll have to find a new test area tho....and the solvent recovery systems will have to be reworked.

Diethyl ether - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ok.
I've done some reading.

Diethyl Ether (or any ether) is out , for several reasons.Not only are they over-the-top flammable , but they will probably dissolve half the plastics on a motherboard.Most troublesome , is the fact that ethers can form 'peroxides' which are unstable contact explosives.Heh.

-----

I'm looking into the following liquids right now ;

Trichloroethylene , Chloroform , Dichloromethane....These are nonflammable , but have other issues , I have to look into each more.

I also have a sympathetic refrigeration tech who I'm chatting with...

/me keeps werkin.

Do Chloroform!

"Hmm, is this water.... or the chloroform?" *sniff*

Actually chloroform is my first choice.The other two are a lot less friendly.

S'ok.... I have OV respirators , I'm looking into a chloroform sample.

I'd sniff it, just to make sure.

Major update time.

-----

It's taken a long time , and a lot of money , but this project is in it's final stage.

The original Idea for this project was to find a cheap alternative to Fluorinert...I thought alcohols might go , but alas no joy.

I could do Chloroform probably , There are some other carcenogenic liquids too.....

Here's what I'm going to do :

I'm going to set the thinktank 2.0 to run using naptha (aka Coleman camp fuel).We won't get even close to the temps I want , it'll probably gel.....

But we'll be able to close this chapter.(and get some pics.)

I really want to thank all the readers of this worklog , and especially everyone that came for the first test runs.....3.0 Charlie/FixT / ElDonko/ Morgan /Rob/Deano .....Thanks you guys !

I'll have pics up in couple days of non-cooled operation , but it'll be a few weeks before I do cooled operation.

-------

Thinktank 3.0 is designed.Using perfluorohexane.(fluorinert).

You will have to wait on that worklog tho.I need to buy a TIG welder for doing copper.....



Thanks everyone for tuning into this worklog !!

Ok.

So here's the first test with 'white gas' aka 'coleman camp fuel' :

Warning : don't try this at home kids , white gas is quite flammable.

Now while it totally works , I'm sure it's not going to play nice with a lotta the plastics....I've left the mobo in the white gas as well as some foam samples etc.......we'll see if anything dissolves....
