Well I started a project using phase change cooling. I thought I would be getting very cold water if I submerged an evaporator into a reservoir of water. Well my idea has been blown to bits (as usual) . The water started out @ around room temperature. Then it dropped to 15 *C, next I turned on my 120Watt Peltier from TE Dist. Which the peltier is being cooled by overclock-watercool's silver waterblock. The water temp after about an hour running my CII 600 @ 1008-1.95v (cB0) came out to 42*C with a fridge evaporator!! ARG. I haven't taken the Bar Fridge apart I just have a 10"L X 8"W X 3" H rubbermaid container holding the water reservoir which contain water, water wetter, and some antifreeze. The evaporator is snuggly inside the container and is in contact with the water and is at max setting. What gives? Should I try and make my own evaporator so I can get a smaller reservoir so the evaporator won't have to cool so much water? Any other ideas like bigger compressor? ME's, fridge guys, or anyone who has tried this do you have any ideas? Thanks alot for your help in advance guys.
