You will want your radiator inside the fridge. An evaporator can be basically bucket of water or a bong. They expose water to air to make it evaporate and create lower than ambient water temperature.

the evaporator in your fridge is most likely the "freezer tray" in my setup the tray has been detached from the top of the fridge and sits in the res. about 90% of it is immersed in coolant

So, I sould of course keep my resivor in the fridge and take my rad and submerse it in 80%90 of water so a few fins stick out? is that the general idea??

if theres room in the res for it you could my res holds about 2 gallons of coolant. i just molded some copper tubing (about 3 feet) coiled inside the res. i guess it depends on how much space you have inside the your res (if it deep enough to accomodate both the rad and evap

So the water flows into the resivor into the pump then to threw the radiator (is the rad in water or just sitting on a shelf?) and then threw another bucket? of water? is that the evaporator? or is my resavor the evap becase my res isnt closed?
