johnnyw said:I had already thought about the reason why peolple who uses mini-fridges as the way to cool the water in these watercooled systems, first don´t let the water get colder by using a home made rad ( like a spiral copper ) and after that, yes , take it to the mini-fidge. In that way better results will be achieved.
nealric said:Im not sure what you mean by lack of cooling on the liquid. Are you saying that heat is not being let out of the water so the water just keeps heating up? Right now I am using a 5 gal res with no rad. Even if i run it forever, it never reaches unsafe temps. I still dont see why it would be heating up too much. Keep in mind that I am not looking for artic temps. I live in houston where humidity is usually in the 90-100% range. If I get it too cold, condensation will be impossible to control. Im looking for 20-25c temps- not subzero.
no a water chiller won't compete with a direct die setup.
