big compressor! lol

bet it'll be able to keep the CPU nice and chilly willy. heh i made a rhyme!

so either get your CPU puttin out enough heat to keep it above ambient (that'll be alot of heat!) or just insulate really good.

heh 1ph is not 1hp. 1ph means its a one phase wich means it takes 110v AC.

LRA of 4.5 means its prolly close to a 500btu compressor wich is too small to keep up with a heatload off a cpu. Direct die it might work but the temps would be high.

No, that is a pretty damn small compressor.He said it is 1PH aka 1 phase.An LRA of 4.5 amps is very low.4.5 seems smaller than most mini fridges even.But hey might as well give it a shot. :)

LRA is locked rotor amps.Not a good way to tell compressor size, but it is okay for a guess.

thats a big compressor, over 1hp. You would be best off making a chiller with it. Also that will draw some major current, it needs to be run off a 220v line so make sure you have one close by.
