Thanks for the compliments guys. It's all about taking your time and having the right tools mostly. And a little experience. I like to post these detailed builds to give other people ideas on how it's done and also give the new owner the opportunity to see their new cooler being built. I learned a lot from looking at other peoples builds.
Here's a few more shots -

After I bolt the compressor on the deck, I like to run my discharge and liquid line. The discharge is the 1/4 tube going from the compressor to the condenser. The liquid line is the 1/4 tube going from the condenser to the filter/drier which in turn feeds the cap tube which runs to the evaporator.








Here they are brazed up.



Suction line is the flex line that goes from the evaporator back to compressor.



Everything is brazed up and I have it under pressure to see if there are any leaks. You use nitrogen to pressure test and purge with. Next I'll work on wiring.



250 psi pressure test



Wiring goody box



Wiring and switch done but I closed the cover. I'll open it up and get a picture of the wiring tomorrow.



I paint the copper to help keep it from oxiding and getting green and nasty, plus it looks a lot better.



More pictures tomorrow.

I have a lot more pictures to come. Unit is vacuuming now. I let it vacuum overnight
and then do a triple evac tomorrow and then charge it up with r-507.

Very Nice man!
I was expecting to wait, was getting bummed out. Great work! Seeing as this is my first one, are there do's and don'ts? Like I assume its not good to run everyday, how will it handle a 6/12 core 2011? Great build log! Very Happy!!

Sure you can use it everyday. I personally wouldn't go 24/7 with anything freezing cold. No dos and don'ts about the phase unit. It's all about prepping your socket and motherboard. I believe Bill (Buckeye) has a great guide in this phase section. Prepping for phase is not as severe as prepping for LN2. Someone here at your forums can walk you through it. Six cores are pretty hot as I recall. Give it a shot and see what happens. The unit is built for 300 Watt. Not sure what the 6 cores crank out.

After an overnight vacuum and a triple evac I put the r-507 charge to it this morning. No load testing and tweaking of charge yet. Maybe later today. It does get cold though. Seems like a great cooler.

We got some smoke coming off the evap if you look closely



Strong charge



I prefer to strap the copper lines down to prevent damage during shipping and just plain use.



I still have some more insulation to do then some mesh and mounting. This will be day three since start. Not sure exactly how many hours I have in it. I'll have to do a punch clock on my next unit. More pics later.
