    HoochCooler2000

    I just installed a modified version of the the original hoochcooler. A smaller, more efficient setup than the copper pipe monster from last year. It still retains the same layout as last time, with glued-on waterblocks and a small radiator. I intend to refrigerate the water with a watercooled array of 6 50watt peltier elements. This way I can shut off the power sucking peltiers and run with room temp water if I choose to. You can't do that if you put the peltier directly on the CPU, because the peltier must ALWAYS be powered-up or you'll toast the processor.
    I think it could be compared to a nitrous oxide system you'd find in a car. Press a button and get a quick power boost. 300watts of cooling power anytime I want. Well, as long as the battery stays charged. Pictures to follow in a few days. Possibly a week since I've been chronically lazy.

    Hmmm...One thing just came to my mind:
    Whan you're running it with the xtra waterblock, the radiator would actually add heat to your system instead of cooling it...

    you should come up with a way to by pass the tranny-cooler. Maybe a switch or something.

    I like it TN, now where's that Duel 700 Coppermine a 2Gigs we are waiting for you to smoke us with ????

    I had similar thoughts on a boosted system and you are right that you can't run the peltier on the CPU if is disconnected, but I might investigate varying the voltage with a Radio Controled Car speed controler. What do you think ??
