Default Thinktank 3

Let's get down to business .

I've done submersion cooling for 10 years now....The Thinktank 2 was supposed to do -70c submersed cooling.

While the project 'technically' failed , I'd say everyone learned a great deal and we had some fun too , so that's a win.

----------

So.

Thinktank 3.

My buddy Deano reminded me of something. Flourinert.TT3 will be running it.It's the best choice.

With John's help building the TT2 tank , ( which is still pristine) I think it will take -100 C , so that's the goal.

-----

I intend to use the same pump , it was spec'd for that.No reservoir......

I've become a stainless steel welding wizard over the last year , so I'm fabbing a custom stainless heat exchanger based on designs I've seen recently.

--

Cheers , let's plan !!!

I'm still around. Need something, let me know. The RTV should still be good. If you need more, you know where to reach me.

I'll make a trip out West for sure. And I think Chrisk will join us this time around....

Yep. I'll use some Westjet points. I can't miss any work, but if its over summer then I am golden. Otherwise, I'll have to recover on the plane back :)

Ok , I have a wee update.

- I have hacked apart all the original plumbing , and have resized it for the new setup.

- I have designed a new frame . I'll be starting fabrication tomorrow probably.

-I have finalized the cooling design.It's going to run TEC's . That was the original idea so , .... DI / ln2 pots come later.


I actually might have new pics in a couple days !

Ok...

I've thought things though.

Frame design is mostly complete . I'll be cutting the stainless steel for it tomorrow .I should have a rough-up of the frame at least by tomorrow night.

We're going to find out just how many watts 3x Thermalright TRUE coppers can sink....with 200 cfm push pull fans.

The TEC setup is spec'd for 2 kW electrical , 3500 watts thermal.

Holy heck! What kind of TEC setup are you running to push that kind of power!? And what sort of power source are you using to drive 2kW, are you running it on 220V?

I'm quite intrigued. I must now go back and read through your build logs.
