hey guys i just got my hands on a full size refridgerator/freezer that still works for FREE. ive ben wanting to do a phaze change system and now i figure since ive got the most expensive part i may aswell build it myself instead of buing one. so how should i go about setting this up?
 
How about drop computer in the fridge and move the CDROM, hardrive and floppy outside the fridge hehe just kidding.

I'm not going to discuss this. So far out for me :)
 
what you should do is not put the whole case into a fridge.

A more effective method is to turn your fridge into your new case if its around the size of a case, drill holes so you can fit in your cd-rom, floppy e.t.c. Drills holes at the back for the connections. Make sure you can screw in the motherboard inside the fridge or make an effective method to do this, and you're off.
You don't need to drill holes for exhaust fans as this is a fridge we're talking about :D
I swear one day people will be selling fridge cases everywhere.
 
thats not more efficant. im building a phaze changer + peltier setup sticking the case in the fridge isnt even close to those temps. the resulting temp of my setup is going to be close to -110C
 
Are you talking a full size 6' frig or mini frig.


if it is full size then put some food and drink along with it eheh :D :p

Just put the whole damn thing in it.:)

What is a phase changer

I'd be careful mate - apparently, if the temp goes below -40, your chip will stop working properly... Can't remember where abouts I read that now though :(
 
i some how doubt that going below -40C will be that adverse seing thats not even close to LN2 and people have done that.
 
At a temp of -110C you'll be killing your CPU. The silicone in the CPU will start to freeze and it will not function properly. somewhere around -30C would be good. If you're going to use a full fridge then i doubt you'll even need the peltier.
 
eh well i guess maybe ill just use the compressor and stuff and forget the peltier... should be able to handle the heat no problems regurdless of what i throw at it
 
sorry starfox i have no digicam. i'll see what i can do with my webcam though.

ssjwizard, your refrigerator should be able to handle it, yes. but you also have to worry about straining the compressor. it happens a lot when you overwork the fridge. your compressor often goes dead. you should put a nice fan or some sort of cooling method on your condensor.
 
yea im gona workup a cooling method for the compressor. i may solder some halfed coper tubing to it and hook it up to my northbridges watercooler its rated at 500GPH so it can spare some
