Thanks a lot. No problem about the time, I know what it's like to a busy kid.

Thats a really nice design you got going there.

And I got my Eagle Scout on Wednesday, you don't know busy ;)
Tomorrow I have USA Chemistry Olympics (built a water cannon hehehe) and pics later. Cam won't work damnit. I put card into printer, printer blinks blinks blinks, nothing. Restart printer, blinks blinks blinks nothing. And worse, when I pull out the card windows says it found a card and then lost a card!
grr

Default crazy cooling

I've looked at the pics a few times but have been lost for words--its definitely good to improvise but Id be in a "lot" of trouble if something like that ever found its way out of the basement.

I'm curious about the specific design problems you need to overcome to get it cooling a CPU/GPU and what kind of performance you'll get.

Its going to help push anything real good though.

Cooling two locations is not hard, however the condenser needs to be large enough to reject the heat load. The main problem is insulating a GPU with a very powerful unit. A low or medium power that holds in the -10 to -25C range would not be hard, however -40C on a GPU is quite intense to insulate for. Basically it can be done, and not that expensively. A lineset adds $180 or so, and a larger condenser or second would add $70 more, plus tuning and more refrigerant and insulation, so expect it to add $300 for a second evaporator.
