HOLY OMFG#%Q)&%#*

And I thought my (not so) Ghetto Cooler (anymore) was ridiculous....that's just.....

I have no words to describe it.......

He's only getting down to -48C, though, so it looks like he'd be better off just getting a Prometia.   :idiot:

that is a lot of $$$ for a project.  It looks like he still has a lot of kinks to work out, but this thing looks insane.

i dont think that i would like to take on a project that big for such a small reward. Having -100f is a status quo more than anything. To me it isnt worth it, i rather be playing games, going out or something..

im so lost, all i see is a bunch of copper pipes and weird stuff, but no computer hardware. for an engineering project, its pretty damn sweet, but for practicallity, 30 degrees above celcius is fine for me.

I am not so sure he is spending alot of money on this. Here at school the guys who work in the machine shops get machine time, metal, and other parts for free. I know he is for damn sure spending alot of time on this. A hobby is a hobby.

I definitely agree with you there.  Sheet metal work is one of those things that can be included in my own long list of hobbies, and I've been known to spend hours upon hours upon hours designing and building things, simply because I was bored.  It's easy to get addicted and go overboard when it's something you love doing.

im so lost, all i see is a bunch of copper pipes and weird stuff, but no computer hardware. for an engineering project, its pretty damn sweet, but for practicallity, 30 degrees above celcius is fine for me.
All those copper pipes are part of the refrigeration circuits (between the compressors, condensor, and evaporator blocks), and I don't think he's put the PC hardware in yet.  Some CPUs (Prescotts in particular) will never see 30C unless you refrigerate them.  My 3.0E used to idle at 50C, and load at 65+, so refrigeration is almost necessary to keep it at a decent level.  I don't think I'll be taking my project quite that far, though......even though I *do* have most of the equipment necessary for it....that's just ridiculous.
