Yes that was braineater. That particular build was published in computers for dummies I think. He tried again with a submerged alcohol system and dried ice but it didn't work. We talked about a revision 3 which may or may not come to fruition.

I know at the brewery he looks after there's a glycol chiller with 5 million BTUs of cooling power. May have to tap into that and cool some CPUs one day :-)
