This is a very good way to keep temps down! what i did was gather up 2 old pots and stick them ito the freezer (to make ice). Now i'm useing 1 at a time in my tub of water for my cooling system :). and since the blocks of ice are rather large it takes atleast 1Hour for the ice to completly melt! by then i have anouther ready to go :)

Kool Idea.. but on the opposite end of the spectrum for a more relaible system running "endless" amounts of computers w/out radiators & pelts try this one... Hehehe I'm saving for one to add to my new seti farm I'm building.. I plan to have atleast at first have 5 t-birdys hooked up to it, and maybe a year or so later after the Qdr ram and Sledgehammer processors come out I might build 2-3 more seti crunchers.. This system is used to super chill massive Saltwater systems as well as expert saltwater reef systems 200-2000 plus gallons of water requiring super cool water temps.. This thing would be perfect to cool all your computers, so It would actually save u power from ur pelts, extra 120 mm fans, and all the extra useless power supplys needed to run those pelts. I'm gonna try one, can't hurt will post my results soon as I get it going..

i'll give yopu guys numbers as soon as my first batch of ice is ready :) right now my video is at 37C. i hope to drop it to 23C without condensation. But i don't think that is a worry because i'm getting a chill just sitting here :)
